Elite Mare Diva presented us with her second foal on Marth 5th, 2008, another colt, this one by Royal Prince. I could not be more pleased with the cross, as this little boy has what I had hoped he would have — long, long legs, modern type, lovely suspension and a wonderful disposition. I have named him Royal Don, in acknowledgement of his father Royal Prince and grandfather the immortal Donnerhall. Donnie sold to Jeffrey and Holly Taylor of Ohio in 2009. Here are a few pics of him newly under saddle.

Here is Royal Don in several photos taken in September 2008. He is growing up to be elegant, correct and intelligent.

Royal Don just gets better and better! He is impressing me in every way — from movement to correctness to temperament which is happy, friendly and outgoing. The pictures below are from April 11th.
