    John Heard decided desperate measures were needed to stop the raids that were decimating his flocks.
    And his solution to the problem has created an eye-catching sensation on his farm after he turned his sheep orange
    The 48-year-old has put his flock of 250 blackface ewes through a harmless dip of orange dye making them so highly visible wary thieves are giving them a wide berth.

    Mr Heard, who runs his livestock farm near Okehampton, Devon had lost 200 sheep over the past few years but says the orange dye is working wonders.

    All this does is give the Brit boys an opportunity to say "Yeah, I banged a redhead".

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I'm surprised that more farmers haven't tried it.
