earned fifth place in the Hanoverian Society/
USDF All Breed Award at Intermediaire II for 2001!
A 60% average. This of course with Jessica Jo Tate aboard.
We are so proud!
Donavan! was featured along with JJ Tate and Greta Larson-Pell
at Wyngate Dressage Center and Wisconsin Equine Clinic on
a segment of Outdoor Wisconsin for Public TV on Thursday,
January 3rd (pm) and Saturday, January 5th (am). It was about
Wisconsin Dressage, a stallion, and care of such a sporthorse.
received the "Silver Premium" rating
after being approved by the Canadian Sport Horse Organization.
of the most recent Donavan! foals, a colt, was born late July
2001 in Canada, out of a Hanoverian mare. He was early and
had a rough start, but is now doing great. His name is Dubé
(pronounced Doo-bay). He's a dark bay with four white socks and
a snip like dad! His owner, Kirsten Keene of Kaiser Stud, has
sent photos for our page featuring Donavan offspring. Kirsten
has another mare in foal to Donavan! for 2002, a lovely gray Hanoverian
mare named Espresso.
Riverland Farm's Teerose IS pregnant by Donavan! due late
July 1 of 2002.
Sugar, our beloved Mustang mare is pregnant by Dazzler,
a Canadian stallion from Jubilee
Farms (see link for more info. on Canadians). She is due May
of 2002. Since she is a buckskin, most say the foal will be black
or buckskin, so we will see. Any bets?
Riverland Farm's indoor arena footing is done, and now
we are looking for a great excuse to have a party at the farm
where Donavan! can try out the new Perma Flex® for all of
his friends and admirers. He has been "home" for a year
now, so that is good reason.
