At regular intervals I search for the mule from Bullyland, - so far completely in vain Crying or Very sad
But some day....

But look what I found ,at MPF. Two mules from a brand that I had never heard about before : STONE, by Peter Stone.

So they just had to go together with the new Schleich, - saving postage, you know geek

I knew about that brand because Peter Stone have some FANTASTIC model horses, sometimes even better than Breyer. But I didn´t know there were mules! They are so beautiful, I specially like the dun one :)

Congratulations Susanne!

I've often looked at Peter Stone horses, one is particular I loved was this mould, not in this colourway though [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] the one I liked was a dapple grey.
Aren't they the same as Breyer, hollow plastic?

Susanne, Peter Stone used to be the president of Breyer Horses! Then about 15 years or so ago he left and started his own company.

Congrats on the mules! They are lovely!

As long as I know, Breyer uses a resin, cellulose acetate in fact :)


Izzy, I didn´t know that about Peter Stone, is interesting!

You're probably right Sylvia, I don't know anything about Breyer or Peter Stone. I have one Breyer stablemate and it does feel like some sort of resin material.

Thankyou friends flower

It is very interesting that Peter Stone was president of Breyer, - one can almost see i .

I am not sure what resin is, isn`t it a sort of china?
The mules are made of a very hard plastic, like Breyer.

I like many of the horses, but some ar MADLY expensive affraid

It seems that many riding mules (mules where the mom is a horse and not a pony) are indeed very sleek. I have googled a little, and people say they are very "narrow" to sit on.

Also it seems they (can ?) have the small hooves of the donkey father :

I think Peter Stone knows what he is doing.
Arrgh, I have to start playing in the lottery, - I would SO much like to have one of the horses from this brand drunken

It´s said that mules have horse body and donkey legs, whereas hinnies have donkey body and horse legs :) (mule: female horse x male donkey / hinny: male horse x female donkey)

Really nice mules Susanne! Very Happy
I like the stripes on the legs of the darker one...
I knew of this brand before, as you often see it on sites where they sell horse-models mainly... Rolling Eyes

Ohh , I did not know the word Hinny. Thanks, Sylvia !
In Danish we call the one where the Mom is a horse Muldyr (Mule-animal), and the one where the dad is a horse Mulæsel ( Mule-donkey), because the offspring mainly is like the mother.

Quite interesting, in horse-breeding they have known for many years that the foal is more like the mare than the stallion.
Ofthen this is thought to be influence from the upbringing, but it seems that also geneticly the mother gives quite a lot more than 50 % of the foal scratch Very Happy

But of course you all know that, sorry, just thinking "aloud". Embarassed

Danish is so much similar to Dutch, there must be some equal heritage there...
We call it a muildier(mule-animal) to, when the father is the donkey.
With the horse as the father we call it muilezel(mule-donkey), so very similar names with similar pronouncing here...

That is fun Very Happy

Looking at a map, Holland, Friesland etc and West-Denmark populations must have had a lot to do with each others for perhaps thousands of years. Fishers and traders probably did not know - or care about - borders Very Happy
Or vikings Rolling Eyes

I can read a Dutch newspaper, or at least understand most, so the languages are siimilar study

Yes, that is the same for me Susanne... study
I think it is not just the trading and so on, but languages are going over in eachother from country to country in Europe...
It always surprised me, that Scandinavian footballplayers who play in the Netherlands, learned our language so fast, and speak it very good after a relative short time... scratch

I think, we have mainly 3 groups of language here...,German-, Latin-, and Slavian languages, and they all have their similarities in their group, but in the other groups to in many cases.
At the beginning, we are all from the same ancestors, we just got spread over the land here, and developed our own language after some time... Rolling Eyes

We call hinnies as "burdéganos" :) (EDITED: and mules are called "mulas")

About the geneticts the mother gives the foal, in fact it´s MORE than 50%. DNA is not only in the chromosomes, all creatures have a variable % os DNA in an intracelular estructure called mitochondria. And this DNA is very important for life! And... surprise! Only the mother´s mitochondrial DNA is given to the descendence. All our mitochondrial DNA comes from our mother :)

Yes, and still many breeders only bother to find a good stallion.
I have heard a breeding advisor say, a little bitter, that people only use the mares for breeding that nobody want to ride. And blame the stallion for the result ! Rolling Eyes
