Sheep eye colour
« on: December 15, 2018, 11:20:46 pm »
Something new I noticed tonight:  Whilst our Zwartbles' eyes look green in torchlight, the Manx Loaghtans' look yellow, or red when viewed from the side.

I just wondered what your sheep look like?  :wave:

My neighbour has an ancient herdie ram which he doesn't really keep track of. He has yellow/white eyes when I encounter him while taking the dog out last thing.
