Note the "snow-white Muscat -donkey"
Princess Emily Ruete wrote in her 1886 memoirs about a trip form the palace to the plantations: "In the evening the snow-white donkeys , whose tails had been dyed with henna had been inspected. Those of the ladies who did not possess a riding donkey (namely the sarari) borrowed one from acquaintances and friends, or were supplied by my brothers and the eunuchs"
