Our Yorkshire Farm Amanda Owen shares pained snap after tragic stillbirth news
Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen admitted she was "pained" as she took to social media to post a sweet snap alongside her daughters.
It was a welcome relief after the tragic news that affected the farm recently.
The Channel 5 shepherdess had headed out into the stable for a regular day’s work out on her rural farm, helped out by two of her kids as they braced themselves against the raging Storm Dudley.
Amanda looked stunning as ever in a camouflage fleece snood and black waterproof jacket, opting for a dark smokey eye look and pale pink lipgloss despite the hard day’s work.
With her daughters bundled up in wool hats and winter coats, Amanda headed out to see to her flock of sheep, before snuggling up in the stable with the horses to make sure they were well fed for the day.
Captioning her rural photoset, Amanda wrote: “Never fully dressed without a smile!
"*Albeit a pained one as we are all sopping wet."
She tagged the post with #Rain and #Winter.
And it looked like her fellow farming pal and Countryfile star Matt Baker was on hand to offer reassurance, as he commented: "Soaking here too! Enjoy the fire."
Later, Amanda wrote to her fans alongside a snap of her kids feeding the horses: "Play in a manger.
"Overheard conversation ‘Will the hay manger tip over?’. ‘No, it’s very stable!’"
It comes shortly after Amanda shared a sweet update on the cows at her farm, after telling followers the tragic news that one of the new calves was stillborn.
Another calf has now been fostered with the mother cow – and, according to Amanda’s pictures, seems to be doing extremely well with its new family.
She explained: "Lily & Stormy! It’s nearly a week since the calf was fostered onto the cow that had the stillborn calf. Now they are inseparable."
Matt Baker chimed in: "Great work, beautiful stuff!"
As another fan posted: "Just perfect!"
"Nice to have a happy ending!" someone else penned, while a third fan wrote: "So pleased for both mother and calf!"
She explained that she’d had to persuade mother cow Lily to let Stormy latch – using the stillborn calf’s skin to do so.
In a slightly gruesome post, Amanda said: "The best way of persuading Lily that Stormy the calf is her own is to use stillborn calf’s skin to disguise her.
"Skinning is not an easy nor vaguely pleasant task as it is wet & slippery with birth fluids but this should make it more successful in the long run.
"Removal of the dead calf’s skin is not as gory as might be the expectation but nevertheless I’ve refrained from showing too much detail."
She added: "Most important is that the tail remains complete as this is what the mother sniffs when the adoptee suckles."
