PICS: Irish farmer proposes to his girlfriend by spray-painting 'Marry Me?' on a cow

Amoosing and udderly memorable.

The steaks are high with any marriage proposal and while some men can make an offal mess of it, Ashley Farrell's effort was very moooving.

Ashley is a farmer based in Fivemiletown, Co Tyrone and we reckon that you've never herd a proposal quite like this one before.  On Christmas Eve, he brought his girlfriend Anna Martin out to his cow shed to give her a Christmas present, a calf.

What Anna didn't plan on seeing though were the words 'Marry Me?' spray painted on the side of a nearby cow.

She says "As we were walking across the yard I saw a cow and calf in the shed and questioned if that was my calf (because I knew it should be bigger)... I had just got the words out and the cow turned around so I could see the writing."

We're delighted to say that Anna didn't give Ashley the hoof because she said yes.

Speaking with Mashable, Anna says: "Ashley is a typical farmer and he would tell you himself he's not a romantic, so it was a very pleasant surprise that he had been so creative!"

After news of their proposal went viral on Facebook, the couple have been very happy to see that their news has made people smile. "It's very strange. I mean we're just normal common folk [but] with everything that's going on in the country with our government, it's nice to be a part of something that makes people smile and laugh. It's all a bit of a craic."

Best of luck to the two of them.
