Was this Alexei's horse or was it just one used for this photo?

Did Alexei have a horse or was he usually forbidden to ride due to a danger of being hurt?

This picture was taken in autumn 1910 at Schloss Wolfsgarten.

Do you know where this picture was taken? I would think at Kranichstein, but I don't know.
This dog is seen at all pictures during the visit of 1910. They visited Friedberg, Bad Nauheim and Wolfsgarten, Between 30. august and 24. october they were in Friedberg. Then they went to Wolfsgarten. It was the last visit of the IF in germany.

Thanks, again, rita.

This is clockworkgirl21's photo.  I do not know anything about it nor the name of their dog.  

Does anyone know the name of this little black dog?

It is indeed the same brindle french bulldog puppy or rather young frenchie on 3 of these photos taken during the 1910 family visit to Germany : in the coloured photo where the dog is sitting on AF laps, on the photo of AN sitting on a bench with the dog  and 2 of his Hessian cousins, and on the photo with AN standing with the frenchie in his arms. I do not know the name of this particular french bulldog, but of course it is not at all Ortino whom was given to TN in 1914. Now the dog being walked with some members of the family on the last photo, is NOT the same dog than on the 3 previous pictures, and it is not at all a frenchie this time but rather some kind of crossed breed.

So sorry, I did not watch the last picture carefully enough. It is indeed the same dog than on the 3 other photos, a brindle ( almost black ) young french bulldog beeing walked. This young frenchie has the typical looks of the early 1900s french bulldogs which very often rather looked like toy bulldogs with still " rose bud shaped " ears rather than the typical " bat ears ".

Another good example of these early frenchies, is Felix Youssoupoff 's Gugusse 1st, a fawn frenchie purchased in Paris, rue de la Paix in 1900. Everyone knows the famous portrait by Seroff showing a young Felix with his beloved Gugusse displaying his wonderful " bat ears ". In fact when ones looks at the different photos taken at the time when Felix and Gugusse were posing for this portrait, one clearly sees that Gugusse never had bat ears but rose bud shaped ears, exactly like this young frenchie shown on the 4 photos of the 1910 family visit to Germany.

I can't say whether or not this painting is anywhere here on the threads, AGRBear, but I do know that you can find it if you do a google image search--look up either Felix Youssopov or Serov and you'll be able to find the painting. As for the actual photograph, I don't know that I've ever seen it, so I wouldn't know where to find it. Hope this helps.

I am so sorry not to be very good at all at posting photos, but I will try my best in the next future. In the fisrt tome of Felix Youssoupoff memoirs " Avant l'exil " translated " Lost Splendour " one can see the photo of Felix and Gugusse posing for Seroff in 1904 between page 44 and 45 of the 1996 edition published by The Folio Society of London, translated from the french by Ann Green and Nicolas Katkoff ( I have at the moment the book under my eyes, the book has a lovely purple front page, lined in silk, with a photo of Felix in his traditionnal russian boyard costume ). On the reverse of the page with the photo of Felix and Gugusse posing, one finds a 1901 photo of Felix, his parents and his brother and 2 dogs including Gugusse sitting just in front of Princess Zenaide Youssoupoff, Gugusse having his ears " falling down " and not straight  ( or bat ears ) as to-day french bulldogs must have according to the breed's standart.
