When biking around Almere I passed "the Eksternest" (Magpie nest), an education center about nature with their own sheep flock with lambs at the moment. This one was so cute licking his mother's back incessantly.
No one would look up to me all very busy with the grass.
The ear tags, required by the Eurpean Union in 2005, are used for identification of all domestic livestock. It always hurts me a bit to see the animals with them.
