Our Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen, 47, shared the most recent struggles facing her flock of sheep to her Twitter feed. Speaking to her 187,000 followers, she revealed that an illness outbreak was still causing her a lot of issues. 

Amanda tweeted: “Only need one treatment and they are cured but they are fiendishly difficult to catch when their vision is limited.

“The shepherd’s crook comes into play in times such as these.”

Underneath the text she attached a video, which shows her fearlessly rounding up at least seven sheep. 

In the next clip, chases after one rogue sheep and even tackles it to the ground. 

Many of Amanda’s followers flocked to the comments section to praise the farmer for her incredible sheep herding skills.

“I think our England Rugby Team could take a few tips from you Amanda with that rugby tackle I’m impressed,” wrote Val Kimberley. (sic)

“Not many could do your job, amazing to watch,” commented Ken Elliott Clasper.

“Good catch! You have a future in American Football should you desire a career change,” added Charles.


In a previous tweet that she posted an hour earlier, the star explained that her flock were suffering from a “blind illness” which meant that a number of them had to be treated. 

“I see ewe,” she began with an Eyes emoji and Ram emoji. 

“A few cases of blind illness amongst the sheep needing treatment.

“Wind, snow and hay seeds make for irritation and infection.”
