I'm about 8 months late in posting these photos, but just rediscovered them.

Beautiful photograph. What does the green stripe mean on the mother's back? Does it mean that she is ready to be sheared?

Thank you all for commenting. I'm not entirely sure about the stripe - I know that during breeding season, the sheep are similarly labeled to keep track of who the father is. It is perhaps a continuation of it.

Very nice Alex. Texels no doubt? You should cross-post these (and any others you have) in the farm animals thread: Ee-i-ee-i-oh! - Farm animals - PentaxForums.com

It looks a bit like pour-on drench (for worms and lice), which is usually applied in a line along the spine. But it shouldn't be used on a lactating ewe, and is usually applied after shearing (because the wool would prevent the drench from being absorbed).

Thank you for your enlightening comments Des! And you're correct - Texel it is! The farm thread you suggested is great!
