Erik Hoglund designed a zoo series for Kosta Boda, but this isn't one of them. There was also the Lindshammar glass zoo series, but it's not the horse from there.
Closest I've found is Pukeberg - it has the same shaped rear end and base. Maybe the photo on google images is the mare and this is the stallion?

I agree that the Pukeberg is so very close that it should be a variant by them

As already stated this horse was made by Pukerberg, there are labelled examples easily found online.

Erik Hoglund did NOT design any of the Kosta Boda Zoo Series, that is one of many internet propagated myths. The original zoo series was designed by Bertil Vallien. Hoglund designed for Boda, several years before the merger of the companies Boda, Kosta and Afors that became Kosta Boda.

but this one is bigger and heavier (0,5 kg compared to 2,0 kg)

but i could not fine any labelled examples, where did you find them, JoFish?

Can't find any like kakerlakenhans's though. However, there are so many similarities between the two horses that I think it must be by the same designer.
Because of its size I suspect its either a limited edition or pre-production piece.
You could try asking on the Glassmessages website if anyone's come across a similar one.

The difference with the horses mane? I did not notice that, these Pukerberg figures are cast rather than pressed, many of them are big and very heavy.
