Elite Mare Diva

Diva

SPA Diva (Donnerhall / Gardeulan II / Perser) is a marvelous addition to the Home Again Farm mareband. Diva was bred by Kareen Heineking, Riehe Farm, Germany. Born in 2002, Diva is from Donnerhall's next to last foal crop. Her dam is Gadina (Gardeulan II / Perser), one of Riehe Farm's finest broodmares. We were very lucky to be able to acquire her in 2005.

Diva fulfilled her Mare performance Test in Germany in June 2005. She won a 1a prize the same year, making her an SPA mare. She presented us with Flamboyant, a stunning Florencio son, May 16th, fulfilling her Elite Mare requirement (rather than the title of SPS that she would have had if she had foaled in Germany).

In March of 2008 Diva repeated her previous success as a broodmare, presenting us with another outstanding colt, this one by Royal Prince. Meet Royal Don on his own page.

She is seen below as a four year old having just weaned her first foal.

In 2009 Diva produced her 3rd foal and first filly while leased. That filly, Rara Avis P, by Blu Hors Romanov is a simply stunning girl with incredible movement (see her below).

I bred Diva back to Romanov for a 2010 foal and was lucky to get my own gorgeous filly from her, Romanesque (see her below). Diva is not bred back to Romanov for a 2011 foal.

Diva was bred back to Romanov again for a 2011 foal and produced the flashy and gregarious chestnut colt Rococo. She failed to become pregnant to Royal Prince for a 2012 foal. In March 2012 I leased Diva to my friends Sally and Fred Moehring, Cottage Farm Ocala. They bred her to Royal Prince and got a gorgeous filly — Rejoice. She was bred back to Benidetto for a 2014 foal.
