That's very intesting! :DThose are surely very high prized, but if the math also applies to smaller models, then maybe a pattern could be found. I think I won't do so, but the thought is interesting.

Also with the new Shires they introduced brown dots in the horse range. I don't recall any of the older big horses to be more than grey dotted :)
I apologize for my late reply Sleep , but I do not believe I've seen any horses above the grey dot range either. If my memory serves, the only other animals I've seen in the brown dot were elephants... Were there any others? scratch

No problem cheers Maybe some of the dinos have brown dots? scratch

Not sure, I don't really collect dinosaurs but I think most of the larger dinos (like the newer ones with opening mouths) have grey dots and much higher prices...

I confess I find this game funny but the first list of T4 almost makes me give up of showing mine. If we list all the animals on catalogue, we will guess all retired, isn't it? tongue
Here is my list:
Grazzing zebra
Warthog female
Black Rhino
Badger kits
Standing raccoon
Wolverine
Lying lamb
Poitou Donkey and foal
Fleckvieh cattle
Haflinger foal lying
Andalusian family
Friesian Stallion
Quarter Horse
Shetland pony
You really think the wonderful Quarter and Friesian Stallion will go? bounce I think the Friesian Mare is more likely to go, as she is much 'older'... And the Quarter.. Does he maybe have bad sales?

Those two guys are certainly of the better in their horses line, I think. :)
Carola, sorry for replying so late. :)
The quality of Schleich figures is is not considered in my guesses, only in my wishes and those are not definitviely my wishes. Very Happy
Good Schleich figures have often a short life, musk ox and mountain goat are two good examples. Of course I can be wrong and I agree that the Friesian stallion is much nicer than mare and it surely is selling well, just trying to guess. The same for Quarter horses. Maybe my wildlife guesses were more rational once I am more used with this kind of figures. But again, behind my guesses are more commercial than quality reasons. flower
No problem, first saw your answer today Embarassed 
I see yes :) Przwalski also had a short life, and is a great figure. And the Tapir too study
And the Percheron stallion at the horse part.

I'm sure you mean retiring a large amount in 2013? scratch  :)  I think the decisions are made mostly on a determination of "bad sales," so I don't know if a pattern would be noticed or not. I mean, they had quite a few new figures this year, so possibly less retired? scratch

Schleich does seem to have been making many tiny models lately - 14639 Arctic fox cub, 13687 Falabella foal, the 2013 releases of marine animals...

I don't know how true this is but I found this:

The male kangaroo was already discounted at my local Tractor Supply store, so I wouldn't be surprised if the kangaroo family was retired as this site mentions.

Thanks! Very Happy I believe this is the info for the set, though it wouldn't surprise me once male and joey were already discontinued this year. Thus, the female with baby can be next. However, if it happens, I don't believe the range will continue without a single kangaroo, what could mean they'll be replaced. :)

Yeah, that'd be strange. And the female kangaroo is a rather new and well-made model to be replaced. How can they do a kangaroo figurine more realistic/attractive for consumers? I don't know...

A tree kangaroo would be much more atractive to you. Am I right, Kiril? bounce

Laughing I know, could you define Schleich style with some statistics? 30 years of animal figures, 2 Australian species on Wildlife range, 2 koalas and 5 kangaroos. Not even a platypus... pale
