There were twelve hundred head of cattle, and a “manada” of mares and colts, beside something over thirteen thousand sheep.
William C. Tetley
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.
In the meanwhile a tremendous struggle was going on in the ravine between the hunters and the rest of the manada.
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.
