A very painterly photo, Laura! Thanks for posting it...

laurajane

Well, that's a clever thing to do! Thanks, chickie. Next thing, there'll be men on the moon.

Laura, The farmers put a sort of belt around the bellys of the rams with a chalk attachment. When the ram breeds the ewes, it leaves a colored mark on the ewe. Each ram has it's own color of chalk so that the farmer knows which ram will be the sire.

laurajane

Oh...the spots of colors! Why didn't you say so? Hahaha! Yes, you are right! They color them according to who's been bred and who hasn't. Yep, PG...you got it.

When the sheep are bred they put a spot of color on them so they know who is and who is not bred. Get your minds back to earth again.......

It's a really fine picture already. Just imagine if their faces were visible -- it'd be fabulous! I love the soft-tones in the background.

Breedings marks, PG? No questions asked. You are going to slow roast my sheep, Robbie? I don't think so! Thank you pkin and you're welcome nightrod.

nightrod

thank you Laura, I LOVE IT!

photogent

Robbie I almost thought you were going to go off the deep end with this.....

Robbiel

I am shocked!! Lovelt butts LJ, just right for slow roasting!

After that remark from PG I'm speechless .... Great one LJ

I do not see any breeding marks on them so I guess that time is passed. Nice shots of sheep shanks butt I think they look a little better from the other end.
Lyndee I know your black sheep story.

laurajane

Thank you, Lorna. Glad you liked it!

Nice one Laura!

laurajane

So glad you like it, chickie and snooker.

Very nice sheep butts as you called them, lj. We may be seeing their better sides - one never knows.

chickiemama

What a nice photo Laura! This is my favorite of all of them so far.

laurajane

Can you post a picture of your sheep painting, pumpkin? I would like to see it.
Thanks for your rock wall comments, lyndee and morris!

This particular picture is wonderful. When I retired, some friends presented me with a painting by a local aritst. The painting had sheep moving along a country road. the colors and sheep in this photo remind me very much of that painting.

True about the rock walls, hit one with the plow, put it on the pile!

lyndee

Ha Ha Laurajane, there's always a black sheep in every family! And you're right about the rock walls, it's great that they use what nature gives them.

laurajane

You know what I find charming? The rock walls and fences all throughout Scotland. Like the one behind the sheep in this photo. Rough and uneven...only makes it better!

morris186

BAA, BAA Black sheep!

laurajane

See the one black sheep? It was because of him that I photographed this particular group of sheep.

Nice sheep!

laurajane

They were facing me when I stopped the car. When I got out they turned away and stood frozen for a while. Then they started grazing after they felt the danger was over. Hence the sheep butts.

lyndee

What a view! HaHa!
