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.
Like using the crayons, they work well. Only issue is that we have black sheep, and several colors are difficult to see on them, unless real close to them. We have found that red and green are our best options.

Our first time for everything! Got it on and it works well. Used purple on our Royal Whites. Shows up well. Rain didn't wash it off.

Works great. I have no trouble knowing when the ewes are bred. The color is bright enough for all my ewes. Dark ones or light colored ones.
