I'm not sure about the why of this 'raincoat'. It's given to new-born lambs and only for the first couple of days. As far I can tell it's only used by one crofter on the island.

Maybe they mark the lambs with that blue "paint" and don't want it to wash off?

I dunno.

But, you've made it quite charming. Congrats on your TT!

Nice one Kees. Wonderful subject (I would say that of course) and great composition. I really like your choice of processing too. Congrats on the TT finish.

Gorgeous photo! What superb light and what a captivating subject. (I never would have guessed that they made raincoats for lambs!)

What a beautiful sheep photo and how unusual to see a lamb in a coat:) I am sure this will do well.
