Amanda Owen has shared some sweet snaps of her children in the frost-bitten fields around Ravenseat Farm, after the family went through a “hard time” before Christmas.
The 47-year-old star of Channel 5 series Our Yorkshire Farm has had a difficult few months as rumours swirled around about the status of her marriage to husband Clive, 67.
That seems to be behind her now though, as she and her nine children looked full of festive smiles in various pics that she shared on Instagram since Christmas, dispelling fears that they were a family in crisis.
Amanda and her children are seen working on the 2,000 acre farm in the pics, as well as enjoying some down time in between tasks.
From feeding the sheep to extended rambles across their farmland, to gathering firewood, there was plenty to keep the family occupied as they headed towards the new year.
Amanda has looked to involve the children in all aspects of farm life, giving them valuable skills as they tackle all that is thrown at them.
On Christmas Day, Amanda showed them feeding the sheep while on Boxing Day, 6ft 6in son Reuben is seen taking the family’s horse Hazel for a walk across the farmland.
In the most recent pics, Amanda is seen “rugby tackling” a lamb so that she can treat and tend to it.
She captioned the snaps: “I see ewe. A few cases of blind illness amongst the sheep needing treatment.
“Wind, snow and hay seeds make for irritation and infection.
“Only need one treatment and they are cured but they are fiendishly difficult to catch when their vision is limited.”
She continued: “The shepherds crook comes into play in times such as these.”
Her actions certainly impressed her followers, who were full of praise for her handling of the sheep.
One commented: “Superwoman, you could play rugby for England.”
During a recent appearance on Lorraine, Amanda opened up about her life and how she has coped in recent months.
She said: “You have your difficult moments. But you have to take the rough with the smooth.
“We’ve just talked about how you weather a storm. So we are pretty resilient in the hills.
“That’s all you’ve got to do. You’ve got to remember, the bottom line is, if you are proud of what you’re doing, you kind of sort of have to shoulder it.”
