KWPN Imported Ster Mare by Ferro out of a Donnerhall mare.
Virona-O is an imported KWPN ster mare who was the highest scoring foal at her inspection.
Virona-O's sire is Ferro, a superb stallion who is one of the best dressage horse producers in the Dutch Warmblood studbook. His offsping are known for great top lines, rideability and strong gaits. Ferro was awarded the Keur predicate based on the outstanding results of his offspring He competed internationally in Grand Prix dressage for many years, including the World Equestrian Games (silver) and the 2000 Olympic Games (silver). He has sired 10+ licensed sons. He started his career as a show jumper, but is known best for his dressage abilities. He has many offspring that compete at the FEI levels.
Virona-O's excellent Donnerhall dam line is based on one of the most influential dressage stallions in the history of the sport. Donnerhall produces rideability and the strength to do more collected work in his offspring. PrimaDonna-O, Virona O's dam, has the KWPN Sports Predicate for Dressage. She has produced many offspring competing at the highest levels of dressage. In 2014, Prima Donna-O,s son, and half brother to Virona O, Zonnerhall by Gribaldi placed 2nd at the USDF Dressage Finals at I-1.
Virona-0's first foal, Beowulf, a colt by Gribaldi, has a loving character and great movement. He is currently competing at PSG.
Her second foal, Gold Premium CF Don De Ablo by Don De Marco was the highest scoring foal at his inspection and as a yearling, took his class and a Reserve Champion at his first breed show in 2011. He was also the highest scoring horse at his first dressage schooling show in 2014.
Virona-O had a gorgeous colt by ISR/Oldenburg NA stallion,Rashska (GP Raymeister x Tashka) in March 2012 named Rajah MM. He is very uphill with an incredible canter. At his ISR/Old inspection, he received an 8.4 for movement. Here is a recent quote from his owner: "Rajah MM is WOW! I beg you on behalf of the breed to breed Virona-O to Rashka again. Please, please, please repeat their breeding, this Oldenburg is truly spectacular for 2 1/2 young years. I feel so blessed, Thank you". At a Breed Show judged by Anne Gribbons in 2014 Rajah received an 8.0 for conformation.
Virona-O's 2013 colt, Ivirson MM, by Johnson (Jazz x Flemmingh-Sultan) is everything we hoped for from this match. Johnson is a rising star in dressage.. Ivirson MM is a modern, uphill colt with excellent gaits and that extra spark that will get him noticed in the dressage show ring.
Jotspon MM is Virona's 2014 colt by Rotspon. True to his sire, Jotspon MM is a beautiful black colt with high white hind stockings and a puppy dog temperament. Built very uphill with wonderful gaits, he should excel in the dressage ring.
In 2015 Virona-O foaled a gorgeous filly by Fiderbach. Kylee MM was the highest scoring filly at her KWPN-NA inspection site and received a First Premium award. She is a beautiful dark bay with excellent type and lovely gaits.
Virona-O had a very lovely filly by Lord Leatherdale in 2016. Her name was Lorraine MM. Sadly, she was fatally injured in a pasture accident. She had the friendliest personality of any foal we have ever bred at Misty Meadows and is sorely missed by us all.
