We like using this marking paste better than even the harness and crayon set up - no worries about harness rubbing or irritation on the rams/bucks, no need to worry about straps becoming loose, and the marks even stay longer than that of the crayons (from our experience). Crayons seemed to wear off/fade within 2-3 weeks after exposure to males. For best results we recommend reapplying Flockmaster once every 4-5 days (depending on how many animals are being bred). We apply a heavy first layer, and that usually lasts just the right amount of time.
The consistency of the product is very smooth and easy to apply. Customers should definitely be mindful when applying that it will stain clothing and the smell of it will remain in clothes for some time.
One thing that I have noticed is the orange and red color are very similar and can be difficult to distinguish. Orange turned out to be more of a burnt color, resembling red. While the blue and green also appear to be similar, the green has more of a teal tint to it, making it stand out from the blue.

Does the job. Had trouble with harnesses fitting properly so I went to the paste. It works well. I have reapply about every other day.

Truly a mixed review.
This is a good consistency and goes on well. It’s definitely easier to apply then a harness is and still marks for about 4 days so far.
The smell is horrible in my opinion and I do wonder if the smell bothers the sheep (though it seems not to.)
Also the warning on the bucket truly gave me pause and left me wondering if I made the right choice of products. It states:
“Contains: Hydrocarbons C9-C12, n-alkanes, cyclics, aromatics (2-25%). May cause drowsiness or dizziness. Causes damage to organs through prolonged or repeated exposure. Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects…” etc.
I’m still not 100% comfortable with the product given the warnings and I feel like the warning should be clearly pictured in the product photos, just so you know what you’re buying.

I like the spray paint better. This paste seems to stay on longer than the spray paint, but it is very messy.

Gets soupy if it gets a tad warm in the bucket.

Works as it says.
