00 MTZ 3838 Blue Checker Cock: medium plus body, pearl-gravel eye.
"A saved for stock" pigeon. In the Zazueta, loft, saved for
stock means that the bird must have an impeccable pedigree, and can "train"
successfully to 300 miles. Then based upon how it comes in training, it
is graded by Brad LaVerne. Only if it gets a World Class rating, will
it then be retained for further examination by Hank Vernazza. If it passes
muster with Hank, Armand gives it the final O.K. ONLY after passing all
of these tests, can a bird that has not raced remain in the Zazueta loft.
This cock has done that. He is a fine physical specimen, and has a tremendous
pedigree. "Zeke" is one grandsire, and "Zekes full
brother "0130" is the other. "Samm-Z" is one grand-dam
and an excellent flying daughter of "Hanks Love" is the
other. "180" in the pedigree
