Painting the tups



Painting the tups means they are easier to see from afar, when they are out with the ewes.  The red stripes indicate where they came from: 2 stripes mean they came from another farm on Mull, 1 stripe means we bought them at Dalmally and Oban, and the green ones are the 'home team'.   9 Blackface and 2 Cheviot tups went out today.   The Herdwick and Suffolks tups went out last week.
