There were twelve hundred head of cattle, and a "manada" of mares and colts, beside something over thirteen thousand sheep.
A manada of about ten thousand head was two leagues off on the plain, quietly grazing in the company of a few elks and buffaloes.
All at once a terrible crash was heard, and the vanguard of the manada appeared on the skirt of the forest.
manada is the name given in the old Spanish possessions to an assemblage of several thousand wild animals.
In the meanwhile a tremendous struggle was going on in the ravine between the hunters and the rest of the manada.
The presence of his manada offered some guarantee, that he might still be near the ground where the vaquero had marked him.
We had ridden nearly ten miles without drawing bridle, when our guide struck upon the trail of the manada.
With all the impetuosity of youth Don Pablo had rushed into the very heart of the manada.
