Susanne told me about 1 1/2 week ago, that she ordered some new 2012 Schleichs for me to as a surprise! cheers
The second surprise was which models they would be of course... bounce
Well, today i got the package, including one retired Bullyland stonemarten to, which i show in the Bullyland section of the forum.

This was the complete presentlot i got from auntie Susanne! cheers bounce queen




14661 Schleich Gorilla male


My Schleich gorilla family so far, missing the other 2 models for 2012


Here the new Schleich male with the latest Bullyland male


Here with the juvenile CollectA male


And here with the Papo male

Susanne remembered that i still missed 3 of the Schleich 2011 line that i wanted, and this was one of them! bounce Very Happy


13686 Schleich Poitou Donkey foal


Here the foal is reunited with her Schleich mother and Papo father

And last but not least, the bold eagle chicks on the nest, which have a heavy feeling over them, almost like they are made out of polystone or so.


14635 Schleich Bold Eagle Chicks on nest



The complete Schleich bold eagle family


Thank you very very much Susanne, you are to good for this world, and a real sugar-auntie for a lot of us! cheers queen flower

The next one, is a model on its own, which i hunted down specially, because i neede it back in the collection.


14246 Schleich Wild Rabbit, in a very nice condition

Thank you everybody! cheers
And special thanks again to Susanne of course! queen flower
The story with the ears of the donkeyfoal is strange of course.
Maybe they are born with adult ears, and they stop growing from that moment on, not logical either, as they are already longer then from the adult... geek

Laughing Hi Arnaud, To anwer your question:
A Jack is the name of the donkey "stallion" (not gelded male) and a Jenny is the donkey "mare" (female).
A Mammoth Jack means "Large donkey".

I once met an old man that owned a Mammth Jack, quite a character(the man not the Jack Laughing ). This "Jack was over 15 hands (4 inches = 1 hand) and not a gentle creature. Shocked He explained to me that you don't let a Jack ever breed a donkey because then he won't breed a mare...I understand it goes the same way if you try to get a horse stallion to breed a donkey Jenny. When you cross a donkey with a horse mare you get a "Mule". When you cross a horse stallion with a Jenny (female donkey) you get a " Hinny" which are usually sterile. Artificial Insemination is acceptable in alot of breeds over here in the USA except for Thoroughbreds. I believe the mares have to be "live covered" for the Thoroughbred foal to be accepted and registered. They "A.I" with Mammoth Jack semen too.

Quoted from the American Jack Registry (http://amjr.us/characteristics.htm): Breed Characteristics - Jacks a minimum of 14.2 hands (58") tall and jennets a minimum of 14 hands (56"), plus girth and cannon bone measurements that meet the requirements, are eligible for registration, as they were when the registry was created in 1888. Animals in these size ranges represent a significant number of the Jack Stock population. However, the model jack 200 years ago, and today, would be no less than 15 hands (60") tall. He should have good width, depth and length of body, a strong loin and full hip. The neck should be well muscled, but not excessively thick, and of proportionate length. The feet should be large and well cupped. Bone should be of good size, flat and clean. The legs should not be fine in appearance, resembling the leg of the Thoroughbred horse. The head should be well shaped and not of extreme length or thickness, tapering to a relatively fine, rounded muzzle, and be in good proportion to the body, with large wide set eyes, and well placed long, thin upright ears. The result of these combined qualities is a jack with style and substance that is well suited for Jack Stock production, as well as producing superior quality mules of any type, relative to the breeds of mares he is put to.

Alot of information on the internet if you are interested in learning more... study drunken
I love to look stuff up and am always wanting to learn more about many things. It keeps you young! cheers

If you are wondering how they figure out how tall an horse or donkey is this is how they do it:
When measuring either a horse or a donkey for height, a Level is place across the "withers" and a measuring tape is run from the ground to the bottom of the level. Sorry if this is too much information, but I hope you found it helpful.
