Don’t Mind Me

2018

As a yearling, “Donnie” has shown extreme intelligence and a very sweet temperament. Like his sire, Dannebrog, he is more refined in his physical appearance with a kind eye and beautiful face. As he trots and canters around his paddock, it is breathtaking to watch. Since his grandsire has won an Olympic Bronze medal in 2008 at Beijing (Don Schufro) and was listed 9th in the Rolex WBFSH Top 10 Dressage sire rankings, we hope that Don’t Mind Me will have a bright future. The Blue Hors stable is an equine breeding facility producing some of the best dressage horses in the world, but how could they not? Dannebrog’s dam, St. Pr. St. Byzantina hails from an impressive line of State Premium mares from the renowned Cassette dam line, producers of Gribaldi (sire of Totilas), Karon (sire of Caprimond) and many more. Dannebrog did his 300 day stallion test in Germany so was ridden cross country, jumping and dressage. You may see a clip of his cross country jumping on Pangaea Farm’s website as David Burke imported Dannebrog to Canada and has stood him since 2017. Don’t Mind Me’s dam, Milka is by a Pangaea Farm stallion, Mattgold that David Burke also imported to his farm. Mattgold won Grand Champion Stallion at the C.N.E. in 1994. His pedigree speaks for itself. On both sides of “Donnie’s” pedigree he has temperament and ridability with superb movement and athleticism for all Olympic disciplines.
