The Shearing of the Beasts or “La Rapa das Bestas” as the Spanish call it, Â is held every year Â in the first week of July in the village ofÂ Sabucedo in Spain. It is a 400-year-old traditional festival and theÂ focus of the noble conflict is between man and horse. During the festival, young men from Sabucedo and its surrounding area (Pontevedra in Galicia) meet in the early morning to go in to the mountains.Â Once there they find wild horses, which they round up and guide into an arena of sorts called theÂ Corral of Sabucedo, where they are sheared and branded.
