Are these not Amrit Mahal cattle of the type used and bred by the Indian rulers like Hyder and Tipu to haul guns and supplies? Surely these cattle were the draft animals for the two carts shown here, probably part of the camp transport of the officer who made the watercolour?

very nice painting! love it
