Our Yorkshire Farm fans in awe of 'powerhouse' Amanda Owen after gruelling post from Ravenseat | The Sun

OUR Yorkshire Farm fans were left in awe of "powerhouse" Amanda Owen after seeing her shear a sheep.

The Channel 5 star, 47, expertly handled a male sheep at Ravenseat Farm.

Amanda explained that shearing the male sheep as tups tend to be more difficult to work with than ewes.

Wearing a black vest top and pair of jeans, Amanda showed off her shearing skills as the woollen fleece of a sheep was cut off. 

Despite her initial concerns, the sheep appeared to be completely relaxed.

The Shepherdess wrote: "The tups are a little more fiddly to deal with and a whole lot bigger and stronger.

"They were far better behaved than anticipated, behaved like true gents and were supremely patient whilst being manhandled."

Amanda's fans praised her for her work ethic, with one writing: "Looks like the tup is finding the whole experience quite therapeutic."

Another posted: "Their behaviour, I'd suspect was down to your natural compassion!"

A third commented: "Amanda you absolute power house, I just wish had half the strength that you posses.. what an amazing human being you really are."

It comes after Amanda opened up about "distancing herself from others" before her marriage breakdown.

Amanda, who recently split from husband Clive, lives on Ravenseat Farm in North Yorkshire – and told how the solitary, rural surroundings can be the hardest thing about living in a remote area.

Speaking at The Game Fair, the Yorkshire Shepherdess confessed: "You can lose yourself and distance yourself from everyone and everything.

"Once I go out of that door to work, it is back to basics. My home life is busy and chaotic, but my work life is solitary. Too much of each one is not good, but living in a remote place gives me peace and quiet."

The mum was recently just as self-deprecating with her home life as she told how she felt "a failure" at Ravenseat.

Last month, it was revealed Clive, 66, and Amanda's 21-year marriage had come to an end.

In a statement on Instagram, Amanda said: "Clive and I are sad to confirm that we have made the difficult decision to separate."

She continued: "This hasn't been easy, but we both believe it's the right choice for the future of our family.

"Although we are no longer a couple, we continue to work on the farm and co-parent together, with our number one priority the happiness and well-being of our children.

"We would like to thank everyone for their support and would that the media please respect our privacy as we work through this difficult time."

The Sun first revealed their relationship had hit the rocks in October last year.

Family friends revealed the couple were battling to save their marriage – with mum-of-nine Amanda spending nights away from the family home.
