Flamboyant

Flamboyant is Diva's first foal, a tall, elegant black colt by Florencio born in May 2006. He was bred by Kareen Heineking, Riehe Farm, Germany, and imported in utero by us when we bought his lovely mother.

Flamboyant, aka Felix, is turning out to be a wonderful fellow. At two and a half years of age, he hads correct conformation, three correct and expressive gaits and a happy, easy, willing temperament. He sold in January 2009 and was started under saddle by trainer Maya Sniadecky. He is now at home in KY with his owner Eileen Beckman where he was fifth in the country in 2010 for Materiale for his division. He is now showing well in dressage.

Pictured below at right , he was at the same show in Ohio in spring 2012 as Royal Don and Hampton Roads (formerly Hot to Trot). This boy ended up a solid 17 hands.

The next pictures are of Flamboyant in September 2008. Below those are much earlier pictures of this lovely fellow.
