Jeremy Vine jumped to the defence of Amanda Owen earlier this week, the star of Channel 5’s Our Yorkshire Farm, after she revealed she had received a warning from social services while promoting her new book at the Hay Festival of Literature and Arts in Wales.
The 47-year-old, who has nine children with her husband Clive, was speaking about her parenting style, admitting that she isn’t a ‘perfect’ mother but that she enjoys teaching her children about their own ‘parameters,’ which Vine applauded her for on his show.
Amanda, who frequently shares her explorations with her children in the dales posted some beautiful photos of her younger children enjoying nature and farm life. In one set of photos, the young Owens can be seen climbing on rocks and looking for trout with the caption: “A balanced standpoint for watching trout on the backside.”
Another set of photos saw Nancy one of Amanda’s girls exploring in a beautiful dress with the caption: “Walking on eggshells.”
The Yorkshire Shepherdess’ fans were quick to applaud her after she shared eight new photos of her young girls playing in a river, searching for sandpipers and climbing on rocks.
