Spotted this in the field next to my house this morning - what the hell is the farmer feeding to his sheep smiley

When I was in high school (back in the days when we had to watch tv by candlelight) I saw a flock of domestic turkeys (normally white) in various pastel colors. When I told my friends about what I’d seen they all assumed I had been indulging in lysergic acid diethylamide) I hadn’t). I later learned the turkeys were escapees from a local turkey farm and had been dyed different colors to keep track of various breedings.

Perhaps your local sheep crofter is doing something similar.

Now let's grab our banjos and SING!

===========================

Ever since a was a youngster,

I've plied the old paintball.

Turkeys, cattle, neighbor's cars,  I must have marked them all.

But I've never seen anything like it,

Not that I can recall......

That sheep shooting sharp shooter

Sure shoots a mean paint ball!

He's a paint ball whizzer, and what a rotten creep!

That paint ball whizzer

Sure shot a short shorn sheep!

=====================================

Very clever Mr Gregory smiley  it does look like it's been double tapped with a paintball gun.  It's the sheep farming equivalent to a brand, each farmer has his /her own colour and pattern.  Apparently 'they fluffy white one with four legs'' isn't an ideal way of identification, however, I suspect that 'they fluffy white one with two heads'' would work.

It's stock marking paint Terry, comes in an aerosol can in a variety of colours, every sheep this farmer owns has two blue dots, a neighbouring farmer marks with a red stripe on the neck.

Awesome !  I suspect when you have 1100 to mark up, you become a little less artistic smiley

Further to Bill's ^^^ comment, it's probably not one of these https://www.amazon.ca/Marker-Breeding-Detection-Marking-Harness/dp/B07JHMW37P   ....unless the gomer ram was somewhat "inexperienced."

Bugs Bunny had plaid paint that came in a can. Brush it on tartan.

Well, wool you look at that. It's the new fall fashions of the latest design and color pattern for kilts. Modeled straight from the factory.

The kilt is one of the preferred outfits among we Scots, when there's serious fighting to be done.
From medieval times, right up to the Roaring Twenties, as modeled here by Scotland's most infamous gangster, the Loch Ness Mobster.

People MY age may remember that Loch was the evil younger brother of ELLIOT, who worked FOR the Government, AGAINST the gangsters, as portrayed in the TV series "The Untouchables"

They each got a fully automatic rifle for Christmas, from their uncle Thomas Ness, which is why they frequently referred to them as Tommy guns.    cheeky
