wow, I am surprised.
I though more people would know this breed. I have added some information below:
The Nonius is an Anglo norman line of horses bred in the formal imperial stud farm in Mezöhegyesh, but which
also spread into Yugoslavia, Romania and into southern Slovakia. Nonius was born in 1810 in one of the stud
farms of Calvados in Normandy from an Anglo norman mare and sired by a thoroughbred, Orion.
After arriving at Mezöhegyesh, Nonius became quite a potent sire. When he died in 1838 he left behind 79
stallions and 137 mares. All of his offspring were properly named after him with lineage numbers from which
the Mezöhegyesh Stud founded a line after him that from the year 1817 grew to 284 stallions and 3203 mares
by the year 1890.
Also try typing in csikos / puszta five into google images and you will see the amazing horse tricks they do over here.
