At what age do you ear tag your kunes? Do you in fact do them at all unless they are going to leave your premises? Do they pull them out (my sheep are forever pulling them out
) I have the tags ready to do, there is 2 as they are registered is there a correct ear for each tag?

I don't tag them unless they leave the holding and are older than 12months old. If they are less than 12months old you just need to 'temporary paint mark' - which can be sheep marker spray.
Most people I have met do the same.

As above, I don't tag mine either

Same here, the only time I had to 'paint' tag mine was when they went to the town square for a Countryside Alliance event!
