Jos Thoné has always been a trendsetter, trying to be one step ahead of his opponents. His great ambitions and his passion inspire many fanciers around the world. They all have the same goal: to win prizes, and to be the best. The Thoné ambition is also to breed the best pigeons to achieve this goal. It can be said that the "Thoné Pigeon" continues to be overwhelmingly strong on an international level. New ways of communication like our website as well as social media, are making it easier to get in touch and to stay in contact with each other. We receive references and testimonials from all over the world, on a daily basis.

We will summarize some of the latest received references and testimonials in this article. If our pigeons did wel on your loft, let us know!
