The red sheep of Scotland

Andrew Jack, a farmer of Scotland, painted his flock of sheep bright red in an effort to "brighten things up". This 54-strong flock of red sheep, grazing on a hillside, have been entertaining motorists driving past the business park in West Lothian, Scotland. The sheep were painted using animal friendly dye and the color remains for about a month until sheared. This is quite a sight!
