Oldenburg - black - born: 1994- 1.67 m.
Carol and I are really excited to have purchased Donatelli. With the advent of Register A, I have been closely watching the successes and failures of certain German pedigrees on the Dutch mare base. Without a doubt, the Donnerhall x Pik Bube cross stallions improve conformation and rideability. Don Primaire leads the entire Dutch stallion population on the conformation index. Donnerhall ranks higher than the vast majority of Dutch stallions on the Dutch dressage index. With the successes Donatelli has seen both in sport and in the breeding shed, I believe completely that he will be an extraordinary influence on the dressage breeding population of North America.
Donatelli is by the excellent breeding stallion Donnerhall, who combined a sports career at Grand Prix level ridden by Karin Rehbein with a remarkable breeding performance, including more than 40 approved sons. Donatelli's damsire is the stallion Pik Bube I, also known as a stallion producing dressage horses. In the third and fourth generation we find the valuable bloodlines of Graphit and Daimyo. The success formula of Donnerhall and Pik Bube I we also see in the pedigrees of Davingon, Don Primero, Duntroon, Da Vinci, Dream of Glory, Domburg, Donnerbube and Don Pikado. Dam Granny's Girl is a full sister to the Oldenburg approved stallion Placido. Donatelli's motherline starts with the mare Fusion (v. Frustra II). This line produced also the approved stallions Picard, Dobrock (both at Celle), Daimler, Picadilly (both at Hannover), Grandus (at Zweibrücken) and Lanthanid (in Denmark), as well as the Olympic horse Prestige with Franke Sloothaak. Donatelli had an outstanding 100 day Performance Test at Neustadt-Dosse in 1997. He was "Leistungsklasse I" with a total-score of 121,26 points. For the dressage elements he obtained high marks for walk: 9, trot: 9, canter: 9 and for his character he got a 10! Although Donatelli has a pedigree for dressage, he also showed jumping talent with scores of 7 and 8 for these elements. Donatelli had an extremely good sire's debut, due to his oldest offspring. His son Dynamico became premium stallion at the Oldenburg stallionshow, his daughter Djerba was sold very expensively in the Oldenburg Auction and Donatorio won the "Materialprufung". In 2001 his very beautiful son Divertimento was approved. Donatelli himself won 5 times in the S-class in Germany and was fifth in his first Prix St.Georges competition. Donatelli is approved for Oldenburg, Hannover, Westfalia and Rheinland.
We have stood Iroko for three years for DBNA. Over the course of these three years, I've seen many of his offspring in Holland and I've handled Iroko himself daily; he is an exceptional individual and an exceptional sire. Iroko offspring unilaterally have good conformation and athleticism. He has been ranked at the very top of the Dutch jumping indices for four years. On top of this, some of the most exciting young dressage horses in the PAVO cup have been Iroko offspring. I believe in this stallion, and I am personally really excited that we have the opportunity to have Iroko represent Shooting Star Farm for the 2004 season.

Zeoliet is by the very modern breeding stallion Ramiro, who has earned the tag Euro-stallion. Ramiro is the sire of several approved stallions in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands as well as the sire of internationally known horses such as: Donau, Ramzes, Almox Rosella, Rinnetou Z, Rolex, Zamira and Ratina Z.
Zoeliet's dam, Sargab, has been declared "prestatie" at the age of 10, which made her the youngest "prestatie" mare in the Netherlands. Sargab has also produced the Z-level dressage horses Wirbeleau and Bauxiet. The dam's sire is the thoroughbred Abgar, one of the most influential Dutch sporthorse producers.

Zeoliet was a great success at the performance test at Ermelo with 9.2 for dressage, 9 for jumping under saddle and 9.5 for free jumping. Zeoliet has been successful in the National Stallion Competition and he went extraordinarily well in ZZ dressage with Roger Schulkens.
Zeoliet is high on the dressage index but also on the jumping index. In 1995 Zeoliet was 12th place at the World Breeding Ranking for Showjumping sires.
There is a long list of horses by Zeoliet that perform well in dressage and jumping.
