Rapa das Bestas

Edited caption: A garañon, or large male horse, neighs during Rapa das Bestas. Taking place every year across Galicia, Rapa das Bestas, or 'Shearing of the Beasts,' involves cutting the manes of semi-feral horses that live in the mountains. Horses are rounded up into enclosures called curros, foals are branded and the adults groomed before being freed. About 300 horses were gathered for this edition of Rapa das Bestas. The curro had the capacity for 1,500 spectators.
