Kurt Asselberghs: “Last year I had a good experience on the first Flanders Mare Auction. I sold a Diamant mare for a lot of money and afterwards I heart the new owners is a happy man. This year I bring a younger mare by Cornet Obolensky x Libero H x Nimmerdor, pure jumping blood! She’s in foal by my own stallion Iron Man vd Padenborre (Darco), which won the bronze at the Belgian championship in Lummen recently.”
