AP tells us:
>>The old horses are allowed to walk about in the meadow during summer. On the other side of the stable is a burial ground where a row of marble slabs mark the resting places of the favorite horses. Here lies "Ami" the horse that was with the Emperor Alexander I in Paris; "Flora", the horse that carried the Emperor Nicholas at Varna; and "Cob" the horse, which the late Tsar Alexander III used to ride, when he reviewed his troops.<<

Thank you.

I finally have a little extra time and hope to pop in once in awhile.

I have been reading The Snow Mountain by Catherine Gavin and it depicts Vanka as being slaughtered by the guards after the Revolution.  Is there any factual basis to this?  Was Vanka still alive by that point, anyway?

I'm with you Ally and I'd like to know what breed of dog this is. Lovely photos too I might add particularly the one of AN which is a little clearer. 1915 or '16 I'm assuming?

That's an adorable little dog.  With some white fur applied here and there in the right places it could be a baby panda.
