Baron Munchhausen says:
" I also happily remember a perfect Lithuanian horse, which could not be bought for any money... My brave Lithuanian horse does not just deposit me in the same hell ... My Lthuanian horse was so wonderfully rapid, that the pursuer was the primary ...". Subsequently, the gate security grille dropping cut the horse in half, which Baron Munchhausen observed only when he stopped water the horse.
Thus Gottfried August Biurger described Baron Munchhausen's ride in Lithuania on the Lithuanian horse obtained from count Pshobovskis! These stories in the Lithuanian language were translate by Dominykas Urba.
The literary hero prototype Hieronumus Karl Friedrich von Munchhausen (1720-1797) from 1750 to the end of his life ruled an estate near the town of Bodenverder. Stamp design reminds us the monument in the town of Baron Munchhausen, and half of his horse drinking water from the source.
