    A Farmer Used His Sheep To Propose To His Girlfriend

    The couple both work in farming and Brown, who farms 450 lambing ewes in Hailsham, Sussex, says: "It felt an apt way to propose."

    The image was tweeted by Alex Murray, a commander with West Midlands Police and a friend of Brown's, who added: #RomanceNotDead.

    Brown told the Eastbourne Herald:

    I just thought I would make it a bit of fun really... We both had the day off so I said shall we go for a ride around the farm.

    Emily told the paper:

    I did not have a clue, I did not expect it at all. I was really surprised. I walked up and saw the sheep and thought 'hold on what's going on'. Then I realised what they had written on them. He then did the gentlemanly thing and got down on one knee.
