    Imperial Size Cabinet Card Photograph by C. H. Grabill, "Roping and Changing," 1890 . Printed on photograph: "No. 1234. Roping and Changing. Changing Horses on Round up. Photo and copyright by Grabill, 1890." When camp was set up, it was the job of the wrangler to set up the corral, usually about 50 feet in diameter. The rope was held up by forked sticks visible in the photograph. One end of the rope would be tied to a wagon wheel. Another rope tied to another wheel would serve as a gate for the corral. When the horses were broken, they were trained to stay in the rope corral. The reason for the large number of horses, called a "remuda," was not only to allow horses to recover from any injuries and to rest, but horses had different abilities. Some were better for roping, others for mountainous areas. The roundup could cover over a hundred miles. Photo by John C. H. Grabill. Measures approximately 9.75" x 6.75".

    Very fine, slight foxing.
