Michael Osborne Wiki – Michael Osborne Biography
Michael Osborne, a farmer asked his girlfriend of nine years to marry him with a surprise proposal by spray painting the question on the side of a sheep. Michael Osborne, 30, asked Bryony Keale, 27, the question as the couple sheared sheep on the Isle of Man farm where they both work.

Man proposes to his girlfriend by spray painting the question onto a SHEEP
Bryony, who initially didn’t think the proposal was genuine, said: ‘He took the sheep out of the pen with the question and I just remember saying,’ Who wrote that? ‘ I kept going in the opposite direction and a close friend of Michael’s threw the ring box at him, and I remember wondering if it was a joke.
‘He was so surprised; He couldn’t believe it. I saw the sheep and thought ‘absolutely not’ and then he released it to get on his knees so we had to fight the sheep so we could take some photos. ”
However, the happy couple’s celebrations had to be put on hold, as they had to go back to taking care of the other sheep. ” Once the last sheep was dodged that night, family and friends celebrated their engagement with champagne.
Michael had planned to ask the question for three weeks and hired drones with photographers to capture the magical moment. He said: ‘When I decided to propose to her, there were only three days left in the shearing season, so time was against us.
“ I knew that he wanted to be proposed in a picturesque and meaningful place. The people we were sharing with were all close friends, so it was the best time.
“Luckily, the ring arrived in time for the penultimate day of shearing, but it was where he wanted it to happen: in the hills.”
The couple, who met during the island’s famous TT race, have said they don’t want anything too traditional about their wedding after their unconventional proposal.
Michael added: “There will be a shearing theme, we will have a shearing competition the night before.”
The sheep carrying the question was quickly returned to the herd, but it still has the paint sprayed on its wool and has since become a star attraction in the area.
Bryony also said that sheep can even play a role in their wedding photos once they get married.
