A great way to identify if a ewe or doe has been bred.
Hot marking crayons (for outside temperature 70º-100ºF) are now available in red, blue and green.
- Size: front end 2" wide, back end 2 1/4" wide. 4" long x 1" deep.
- Contains wax, colourants and inert excipients.
- No dangerous components.
- A metal pin (hidden under the label) comes with each crayon.
- Can be used with our Deluxe Marking Harness, Nylon Breeding Harness or Cross Your Heart Leather Breeding Harness.
How to Use
- Hold in one hand so crayon itself is facing you.
- Push the crayon (hole in the center) with finger or thumb.
- Crayon should pop out.
To put in holder on harness:
- Remove cotter pin out of back of crayon by making a slit down middle of sticker.
- Place narrow end of crayon (plastic side down) in wide part of holder.
- Gently slide up until it can go no further.
- Slide cotter pin through holes on side of holder and crayon.
- With needle nose pliers, bend end of cotter pin to lock in place.
- The shade of the marks on wool may not exactly match the crayon color.
- Store in a dry, cool place to prevent crayons from melting.
- Always check the ram every day to see if the crayon needs changing or the harness needs adjusting!

They work good for us in December.

I am disappointed in these crayons, as they are too soft. One of my bucks is wearing a harness with a Sullivan's Supply Mild crayon that was partially used before I put it on him Nov 18. He has bred 13 does since then and the crayon is still usable and marking just fine. The other is wearing a harness with a Premier regular crayon, and wore out his second new crayon yesterday, having bred 9 does. So even though Premier's crayons are priced lower, the actual cost of using them is higher, not to mention the time involved in restraining a 300 pound buck in rut every few days to replace the crayon. I will not buy these again, and do not recommend them.

Worked great and lasted a long time.

Crayon marks well and seems to last through quite a lot of markings. Easy to use.

I've used the orange and green markers before. They really leave a nice rub on the ewe. The orange stays prominent for a long time. I know which ones of my small flock have been bred. I record the date, and so far it has been accurate.
