CF Don De Ablo (Danny) was the top scoring foal at his RPSI inspection site, scoring an 8.2 for conformation, 8.2 for gaits and overall. The inspection judge also recommended him as a stallion candidate. At 18 months old, he won Reserve Champion Colt/Geldings at the GHF Dressage Sport Horse Breed Show in Conyers, GA. He is a lovely mover with a kind temperament. He trailers, clips and is good for the farrier and vet. He has been handled every day since we purchased him as a weanling and has wonderful ground manners with people and other horses.
Danny has the temperament for an amateur and the gaits for a Young Rider. Although he likes to jump, we expect he will excel in dressage. He is a gorgeous dark bay with correct and extremely comfortable gaits, easy going temperament and excellent conformation. He has just been lightly started under saddle and is very willing but needs a bit of confidence. His estimated mature height is 16 - 16.1 H. He is lifetime registered with both USDF & USEF.
CF Don De Ablo's sire is Oldenburg Don De Marco who is a half brother to the famous Donnerhall. Don De Marco is the only son of Donnerwetter (Donnerhall's sire) standing in North America. He is known to pass on great movement, athleticism and excellent temperament to his foals.
CF Don De Ablo's dam is the imported KWPN Ster Virona-O. She was the highest scoring filly at her KWPN foal inspection in the Netherlands. She has produced several premium foals with excellent gaits and temperament. Her oldest son, Beowulf is currently showing at PSG. Virona's sire is Olympic Ferro (Keur) who competed in the 2000 Olympics and assisted his Dutch team in winning the Silver Medal in Dressage. Ferro is known to create typey, talented offspring with excellent movement and top lines. His offspring excel in dressage and he has produced many approved sons. Ferro was a jumper before he was trained in dressage so he often passes on excellent jumping abilities. Virona's-O's dam is by the famous Donnerhall, one of the most influential stallions in the history of dressage. Donnerhall passed on rideability, trainability, the ability to "sit" at piaffe and passage and wonderful temperaments to his offspring. He has the highest dressage breeding value of all stallions at 271, and has produced over 77 approved sons, 450 broodmares (84 SPS) and over 636 competition horses.
CF Don De Ablo is both a nephew and a great-grandson to the great Donnerhall.
