I purchased the mild crayons this time because the hot weather crayons didn't mark during our December breeding time and the cold weather had just crumbled off the previous December. I assumed because it was too hot in Texas during the winter. The mild crayons marked initially on two bucks but quit very quickly. The mild crayon didnt mark at all on another buck from the moment I turned him out. Don't know if it is the slick hair of a goat or these crayons. My parents live several counties away from me but breed goats at the same time and purchase their crayons locally and they work fine.
I purchased the cold weather markers. Its been in the low 20 here and the markers are working well. The blue and red show up the best.
Don't show up the best, I would recommend the hot instead of mild or cold.
Shows up well. Last a reasonable length of time. Over all very satisfied.
Shows up great even on white sheep. Stayed on even through the 3 days of rain. Didn't do as well on the reds and browns but I bet its gona show up on the black sheep great. I wanted a light color the first marking.
