Sorting in the Corral depicts the activity of separating bovine livestock from one corral to another, undoubtedly with the aim of slaughtering them. The riders in the distance rustle the cattle while the owner of the hacienda, dressed in a frock coat, observes the scene alongside the overseer, close to the corral gate. There is a rider to the right and an elegantly dressed peon to the left who await the animal in the foreground. The scene takes place at dawn, as is evidenced by the projected shadows, where the light that emanates from the right bathes all the elements and creates a bright atmosphere that permits us to appreciate it in every detail.
