Our Yorkshire Farm's Amanda Owen shares brutal impact of drought at Ravenseat

Amanda Owen has revealed the brutal impact that the drought has had on Ravenseat Farm.

The Our Yorkshire Farm star has taken to her social media to share how her animals have been affected by the extreme heat.

The Yorkshire Shepherdess posted a series of clips and photos shearing her sheep which she said have found the hot weather difficult.

Amanda said 15 of the sheep needed shearing as their fleeces are especially dirty and itchy due to not having the rain to wash them.

Getting to work, Amanda was wearing a pair of black leggings along with a white cut-off sleeve top, finished with her hair pulled back into a half-up style.

As well as the sheep shearing clip, Amanda also shared some more photos of the flock as well as one of two of her children, home she shares with her ex husband Clive.

Alongside the post, Amanda wrote: "There’s only fifteen need clipping. The fleeces are very dirty due to the heat and humidity over the past month.

"The lack of rain hasn’t rinsed the particles of grit and soil from the wool making them even more itchy."

She added: "Handled calmly, quietly and carefully. Then they can return to the moor. #yorkshire #shepherdess #wool #shearing".

Fans of the star took to the comments to praise her for her hard work.

One person said: "You got this girl," as another added: "Your back must hurt. Hard working people."

A third wrote: "Doing a great job."

Another commented: "You are so strong," as a fifth took to the commented to say: "You’re so working hard AMANDA. Lovely."

The struggle with the weather comes months after Amanda announced she was splitting from husband Clive after 22 years of marriage.

Amanda made the initial announcement via her Instagram page, where as Clive tends to stay away from social media.

Amanda wrote: "Clive and I are sad to confirm that we have made the difficult decision to separate. 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 ask the media please respect our privacy as we work through this difficult time."

The split comes after the pair met back in 1995 and went on to have nine children together.

Clive was already running Ravenseat Farm in North Yorkshire with Amanda doing different jobs to get by at the time.

He was running his farm alone after a divorce from his first wife when Amanda stepped foot on the farm for the first time.

When they met Amanda was 21 at the time and Clive was 42.
