Our Yorkshire Farms Amanda Owen delights fans with picture of rarely seen son

Our Yorkshire Farm's Amanda Owen has shared a rare snap of herself with her son Reuben.

The shepherdess, 47, is known to share photos of her nine children on Instagram, as well as plenty of her many animals across the farm but Reuben's appearance shocked many of her fans.

The 18 year old rarely features on the Channel 5 programme but it appeared as though he'd been roped in to help his mum with the seasonal sheep sheering.

As well as her selfie with Reuben, Amanda posted a selection of pictures, including one of her sheep, one of herself and a video of her dog, Kate, rounding up sheep.

Fans complimented the reality star and her son, with one person writing: "You are a wonderful family."

Another wrote: "Lovely to see a photo of Reuben."

A third said: "Great photos as always."

And fourth person complimented the work of Kate, saying: "Kate's a good dog."

The sneak peek into Amanda's family life comes one month after she and her husband Clive Owen announced their decision to split after 22 years of marriage.

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

The statement 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."

The couple went on to thank everyone for their support, while asking for privacy during this time.

The statement was signed off with both Amanda and Clive's names.

In a recent interview, Amanda, who has continued to work on her farm following the split, told the Yorkshire Post that at times she feels "utterly pathetic" and a "a bit of a failure".

"I feel utterly pathetic when one of my sheep dies," she began, before adding: "I feel like a bit of a failure."

She continued: "The old adage of ‘when you have livestock you have deadstock’ is true. You have to put it behind you. You can’t dwell on it.

"You can’t shepherd or farm without accepting you are going to lose animals. It is part of the job".

Amanda admitted that she has moments of doubt but describes her job as "very satisfying", adding that farming can be very isolating.

The 47 year old said: "There are moments when I think why the hell am I doing this but overall, it is a very satisfying role.

"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."
