Amanda Owen and her husband Clive live on Ravenseat farm with their nine children. In the recently aired season of Our Yorkshire Farm, the couple’s second youngest daughter Clemmy went off to school for the first time. Nancy, three is now the only Owen child at home every day and Amanda has revealed the youngest has a habit of “ripping clumps” from her hair.
In her book, Tales From the Farm, The Yorkshire Shepherdess shared what her life is like day-to-day.
The Our Yorkshire Farm star revealed she spends most of her time with her youngest daughter Nancy who was aged two-and-a-half when the book was written.
She wrote: “On most occasions, it’s just the sheepdog and myself, though my daughter Nancy still likes to travel in the backpack as I do my rounds, master of all she surveys.
“That’s if she can see at all, as her balaclava keeps twisting around as she cranes her neck, determined no to miss anything that is going on.”

“If I turn my head to the side then I can just about a glance of a vision in pink, complete with a runny nose and a look of surprise,” she continued.
“The wind blows, the air is cold and her cheeks are rosy, but what a sparkle she has in her eye.
“I imagine that her senses are in overdrive with the smells, taste and sounds of life on a hill farm.
“All of my children have travelled via this conveyance; held securely by the straps, they don’t move, even when I lean forwards to pick up canches of hay.”
“Nancy wears an all-in-one padded suit with attached booties and mittens that I tie in place with baler twine,” Amanda explained.
“Cold hands and feet are a misery I want to spare her.
“But I have discovered over time that mittens for baby are also essential in the prevention of bald patches on my head.
“Tearing my hair out over a missing sheep or a bad forecast is one thing.”

“But Nancy’s tiny fingers ripping clumps free is a definite no-no,” she added.
Nancy is the youngest of Clive and Amanda’s nine children.
The couple also shares Clemmy, five, Annas, six, Sydney, eight and Violet, nine.
Edith, 11, Miles 14, Reuben, 16 and Raven 18 complete the Owen family.
