A little about us . . .
Cherry Tree Lofts was established in 2005. Debra is my wife and my right hand.
We are members of the NPA, WFC, CFC.
I am currently the Vice President of the Western Fantail Club.
We always have a bird or two For Sale.
We cater to the Promotion of Junior Breeders.
I am in my 50ís and returned to one of my Hobbies I had as a kid. My father
Stan Sr was the one who taught me the most of what I know about pigeons. He is
and was well known in the English Trumpeter group. I spent my early years in the
English trumpeters until I was 10.
I was introduced to Fantails in the 1960ís. These were the days of Jess Racey,
Cy Harper and young Drew Lobenstein. I was given a pair of Blacks from Jess and
a pair of Powder Silvers from Drew. That was my start , I stayed in the birds
thru the 70ís in Central Calif.
I started back into the birds in 2006, when one of my co-workers Doug Hall
challenged me to build a loft. He has been a fancier for over 30 years. My wife
and partner Debbie had no reservations so here we are.
My passion are Andalusian. I also love the Reds, Yellows, Powders ( both blues and
silvers) and the Opals. You can see with the advent of the internet so many good
birds from back East, Midwest and Southern Cal immediately.
I have started my Stud Lines from Dennis Lawrence, Rusty Cosby, Bob Vincent
and Dennis Soares. I will continue to add from reputable breeders like Ben
Ferber, Greg Pola, Kyle Christensen, Amir Turkanovic and Seckin Auycan. I would
hope to further our cause and strive to breed for perfection. By doing so meet
some great people, tell a few lies at the shows and just have fun in our hobby.
I cannot leave out the one person that jazzed me up to come back to Fantails,
My goal is to be as well liked in the pigeon world as my father. To breed some
quality birds and put my own mark in the Fancy.
