Farmer pops the question to girlfriend with will you marry me sprayed on cows

A farmer found a romantic way to pop the question to his girlfriend after enlisting two cows for the proposal.

Lewis White, 24, used spray paint on two of his herd when he wanted to ask for Emily Francis' hand in marriage.

He wrote "will you" on cow Karen and "marry me?" on cow Sue at his farm in Alford, in Somerset.

The lad woke his 20-year-old partner up at 6:30am and took her to the field where she saw the question on the cows.

From here he dropped to one knee and presented his partner with a ring which had been handed down through his family.

The farmer enlisted the help of Louise Davis, of Honour Bespoke Jewellery, to make the ring ready for the special moment.

Lewis and Emily, 20, live together on his family farm – after meeting during lockdown.

Emily, who was a hairdresser, had fallen for Lewis' lifestyle and is now training to become a calf rearer.

Her affection for the cows they manage together inspired Lewis to recruit two of them with the proposal on July 31.

He got his mate Anthony to help spray the romantic question onto the two cows.

Lewis said: "I got the ring set up eight weeks ago but had the idea for the cows a month before.

"I thought it would the right way to do it. We bought the cows together at the start of lockdown and reared them together.

"The plan was to write each word on one cow, but it didn't quite go to plan as the little sods didn't want to stand still.

"So, we just did it on two. I woke up 6am in the morning – I was out in the pub the night before so wasn't the best idea."

He added: "I got my friend down and he put them in headlock while I sprayed them with chalk spray."

Speaking about Emily's reaction, Lewis continued: "I gave her a call at 6:30am. She didn't know what was going on!

"She came out half asleep still in her pyjamas.

"But when she realised, she welled up, although she was half asleep so wasn’t quite sure what was going on."

Lewis says the couple are yet to set a date, although they'll likely wait two years before the occasion.

On Emily's newfound love for farming, he added: "She absolutely loves it – she loves it to the core.

"She's been in and around farms but never been interested. But I brought her along and she fell in love with it.

"She loves cows, all of it. It's long and unsociable hours so it's quite nice she's more than willing to get stuck in with me."
