Arrived in October of 2012 at EdA's, Donna Magica quicky and softly became a member of our family. Correctly built, in a compact yet solid frame, her topline and neck set was good and strong, she was free in her shoulder and her three gaits were correct, with good knee action and strong push from behind. Her canter was particularly good and she passed it to her two foals. Donna was free of vice, she was a polite, respectful and friendly mare, who loved to get lots of attention and who was always eager to please.
Before being imported, Donna Magica actively competed in dressage in young horses classes. At her mare inspection in Vechta (Germany), she was accepted and entered into the Main Mare Book of the Oldenburg Verband with scores of 8 for her type and her frame, with an overall of 7.2. In September of 2013, Donna Magica was presented to the German Hanoverian Verband for entry in the Hauptstutbuch. She was accepted with scores of 8 for her head and correctness of her gaits.
Donna Magica made the trip to Canada from Germany in foal to the Dutch warmblood stallion Johnson. This colt, named Janosh and bred by Lidwin Verdier, got his Premium award at his German Oldenburg (GOV-OHBS) foal inspection. Donna Magica went back to training after the weaning of Janosh but an injury came to put an end to her sport career, before she was able to hit Canadian Dressage shows.
Donna Magica had to be euthanasied on May 3rd, 2016, after a night of hard efforts and work to try to save her foal (victim of a very bad and unreal dystocia) and then her, with no success. Her lost, while we were still mourning Serenti's tragic death, will stay forever in our mind, like a painful wound that will never heal.
