PEDIGREE: Sire Askari German national reserve champion as a 5-yr-old and is at the start of his international career. In addition, Askari has an interesting pedigree with Acord II (Ahorn Z x Calypso I), Lavall I (Landgraf I) in combination with a full sister of the famous Holstein stallions Calypso I, II, III, IV and V (Cor de la Bryère) from lineage 6582.

Nolde is also known as grandam of the famous Holstein stallion Carpaccio (Caretino) and the international showjumping horse Lenaro (Leuthen I).
