Janssen of Arendonk  ...  the Legend Continues
Midnight Blue Racing Lofts
Midnight Blue Racing Lofts
    The legend  of the 'World Renowned'  Janssen Racing Pigeons began in 1886 with Henri Janssen of Arendonk Belgium. Passing the torch to his sons Charel, Adriaan, Louis, and Jef , the legacy continued until 2012 ; spanning 126 years . With the passing of  the last remaining brother, Louis Janssen in 2013 ... the doors to the world famous lofts of Arendonk were closed forever.     There remains a handful of loyal fanciers around the world who managed to secure the 'Original Bloodlines' directly from Arendonk.  Midnight Blue Racing Lofts is numbered among those few.
