Have had Dormello in the back of my mind for a while now. I saw a pic of his daughter, the Brilliant Ring Mare DeLovely and am really impressed. Is anyone aware of any of his get here in the US , stallions standing or mares for sale?
There is frozen available of his sire's. I have always thought going to the grandsire to breed makes sense if you want what has already been produced. What do you think?
We have a Dormello mare in our barn. Owned by a friend, we are leasing her (and might very well end buying her) for the 2013-2014 breeding season. She was imported from Germany in 2007 (or very early in 2008). Here's her page on my website. http://www.autumnsstables.com/eng/donna_magica.html We are not sure yet wich stallion we'll breed her to this spring, but are leaning towards Sir Gregory or Fabriano. She got a very nice Johnson colt in 2008 who is for sale by his current owner (wich is not me!).
Ann Kitchel has a super producing Dormello mare in Germany. Has been bred to Floriscount at least times and produced super foals! Tantorini Warmbloods in the UK also has a super Dormello mare that has been bred to Floriscount with great results. Pangaea Farm also owns a Dormelo mare. Those are the ones I know of. We own De Lovely and she had her first foal last year, a filly by Sir Gregory. Filly had never been off the farm when we took her to Dressage at Devon where she won the Fillies of 2012 Class, a class of 30 foals. Katrin Burger told me the Dormello mares were proving to be good producers. I sure was pleased with the foal my De Lovely had in 2012. Think she is going to be a very good producer.
I’m not sure if it’s interesting since I’ve not seen a direct son but a grandson by Florencio is very popular here in Sweden.
Floricello is by Florencio x Dormello x Feingau
His first foal crop looked very promising.
I saw Floricello at his Korung in Oldenburg and thought he was lovely. He looks super under saddle too. In-hand he reminded me more of Dormello than Florencio, but under saddle I can see the Florencio coming out (-:
Confirming my point that the Dormello mares are good producers (-:
I have started 2 Dormello dam-sired horses (by different sires). Both have been kind, easy to train and elegant. The gaits are good and they seem to be ideal horses for the NA market. I had the privilege of meeting Floricello's dam Starlet this summer, she was stunning and Georg Sieverding showed us a yearling filly out of her by Fürstenball that was truly special.
