Waverley Don Giorgio (2012)// A Black Hanoverian Colt.
Full Name: Waverley Don Giorgio (2012)
Breeding Summary: Don Index / De Niro / Banditentraum
Sire: Don Index
Dam: Elite/SPS Drogheda
Height: To Make 16.3 - 17
Approved By: Microchipped and branded Hanoverian
Don Giorgio was born on Saturday 12th of May, 2012, and immediately endeared himself to everyone with his brave affectionate nature - which has never changed. He is a statuesque model - a powerful mover with a well muscled top line and very handsome face. He is proving amenable as we introduce him to tack - saddle, bridle and boots.
Don Giorgio is by Don Index , the 70 day Stallion Performance Test Champion at Adelheidsdorf in 2010. On attaining this achievement he was acquired by the Celle State Stud where he now stands and his first crop of foals caused a mini sensation in Germany.
His mother Drogheda is a stunning Hanoverian mare by De Niro who descends from the highly coveted Trakehna mare line of Happy III, which has also produced the champion mare Soiree D'Amour (who was fifth in the World Breeding Championships for 5 year olds in 2014). Drogheda's first son is competing successfully in young horse classes (at what equates to advanced medium level) in Germany; while her second son by Lord Loxley licensed as a Stallion in Verden in October 2010 and was sold to Sweden. We own her third foal, a glorious filly by Floriscount, who is Hanoverian 1 A graded. Don Giorgio is her fourth foal. Her fifth foal, by Metal, is retained by us as a stallion prospect and her fifth foal is sold to Canada as a dressage competition prospect.

Just thought I'd let you know how Rocco is doing - he is
absolutely massive I'm sure he's going to make about 18h at this rate!
But he'll be big anyway like you said and just what I wanted. He's a
lovely boy and stands very good when having his foal feet trimmed. He
let's me go into him and make a fuss - he's so easy to handle - unlike my other foal who is an evil monster in miniature! Hope you and horses are well x (Apr 2012)
'Monik is just super. A really happy lady to have around. She lives with
her best buddy Nora (a KWPN broodmare) and they are excellent mates!' (Oct 2011). 'She is a fabulous mum and was indeed five days early as you said
she would be! She is a joy to have around. She lives out with her other
broodmare friend and despite the ridiculous weather is pretty happy!' (Jun 2012)
