This picture doesn’t do justice to this lovely mare. We bought Kirona from our friends at DG Bar Ranch, in Hanford, California. Her dam, Wirona, was imported as Betty DeGroot’s personal riding mare. Wirona, crossed with Volkmar, went on to establish one of the most consistent producing group of daughters in the country. The Junior STV mare, Petra DG, who was grand champion of Devon a few years ago, is out of one of these daughters. Kirona herself has produced two top ten offspring by Ferro. Kirona is a little heavier in type than our other mares, but she is super athletic and sweet, sweet, sweet. She has produced a super Metall filly for us (now owned by Helena Kopczynski), a really athletic and sweet Zeoliet filly, Virona SSF (sold in 2004; congratulations, Jordan!), and a HUGE, impressive Freestyle filly in 2004. This filly, Zirona SSF, has been sold to Elizabeth Hamshaw as her future sport mare and foundation broodmare–she couldn’t find a better choice! Kirona’s 2005 Donatelli colt, Adonis SSF, has already found his biggest fan in his new owner, Kathy Palumbo. We sadly never got a filly to keep for our breeding program, but Kirona lived out her days happily at SSF.
