Donnermeyer is a multi-talented stallion. He has the movement for Dressage, and the strength & talent for Jumping. His talents are not surprising, as his pedigree is World Class, containing the "Royal Three".
A son of the multi-talented De Niro, whose foals continue to be top sellers at Germany's top auctions, and a grandson of two of the World's top producers of Dressage horses, Donnerhall & Weltmeyer. His dam's dam's line are also some of the best mares in Sweden, producing top Jumpers, and Dressage horses. Donnermeyer's great-grandsire, Romadour II, is also Rubenstein's grandsire.
Donnermeyer was approved with the American Warmblood Society and the Rheinland-Phalz-Saar International, in 2002. Because of the exceptional quality of his foals, and their foals, several have been accepted and registered with other registries, such as HOL (Holsteiner), OLD (Oldenburg), SWANA (Swedish), and BWP (Belgian Warmblood).
Having an excellent breeding record, Donnermeyer has an overall pregnancy success rate of 92%. His semen is very high quality, with high motility, and longevity. We have documented cases of 3 mares conceiving after ovulating 3-4 days after last being inseminated (2 at 3 days & 1 at 4 days). Most stallions semen only lasts 48 hours.
Although Donnermeyer stands at 16 hands, he is genetically 16.3 to 17 hands. This means that it is like breeding to a stallion who stands 16.3 to 17 hands tall. It really doesn't matter his physical size when breeding, only his genetic size, as this is what he is contributing. He has foals as tall as 17.2, out of a 15.3 HH mare, 16.3 out of a 15.2 HH mare, and 16.3 out of a 16 HH mare.
Between 2003 and 2005, the AWS inspected 15 Donnermeyer foals; 7 receiving scores between 75%-79.9% (only 14% of the horses inspected by the AWS receive this high a score), and 3 receiving scores between 80%-100% (only 4% of the horses receive this high a score), making Donnermeyer one of the AWS's top producing stallions, in only 2 years! He also has offspring (foals & grandchildren) registered, or approved for breeding, with several other registries such as Swedish, Holsteiner, Oldenburg, and Belgian Warmblood; all receiving high scores or premium designations.
Donnermeyer's best trait is his beautiful mind. He is a very easy going stallion, who is regularly complimented for his sweet nature. He is gentle and kind, truly wants to please, and loves people. He is like a puppy-dog, filled with personality, and a pleasure to be around. He also passes this on to his offspring.
Donnermeyer has the desirable traits of his famous sire, & grandsires. He is definitely an improvement sire in terms of temperament, movement, and size; both height and bone. He passes on his willing personality & intelligence, a beautiful head, a higher set, more rounded neck, a great shoulder angle, a strong hind-end, more substantial bone, and excellent movement that is equal to, or better than his (even out of average or worse moving mares).
His offspring are showing and winning at both Dressage and Jumping.

Out of the Multi-Talented stallion Donnermeyer, Donnersohn has impeccable bloodlines from DeNiro, Donnerhall, Weltmeyer, and Walldorf.
His dam's sire, Walldorf, was imported to the US in 1995. He is by Watzmann who produced Walzerkonig, 1988 Olympic winner in Seoul. Walldorf was 1st out of 26 in his stallion testing. All three basic paces were given a grade above 9.0 . Jumping was rated 8.0 making the total score 149.26. Walldorf is trained to intermediate level dressage, and by 1990 he was already the second most successful sire of dressage horses in his age group.
Donnersohn passes on his wonderful loving personality as well as the genetic height and movement to his offspring. Just like his sire, he is extremely intellegent. He is very easy to handle, even during breeding season.
