Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen has raised concern from her fans after she shared a selection of pictures of her and her young family wild swimming on a recent hot evening.

Amanda, 46, posted the pictures on her Instagram of the family having fun in the water near their home at Ravenseat Farm.

The Yorkshire shepherdess’ pictures included one of the children with their family favourite, Tony the pony, also enjoying the dip on the hot summer night. She did add some information about safety while wild swimming along with the family snaps.

The mum of nine wrote on the post: “After an insanely busy time we have been enjoying a cooling off period.

We’ve taken to the water but thought it apt that we share some brilliant advice & information from @theoutdoorswimmingsociety via a story on how to enjoy the water safely.”

Despite the safety note, some fans raised concern about the colour of the water the children were pictured swimming in.

One fan of the Yorkshire mum asked: "Why is the water red?"

Another echoed the concern saying: "Why does the water look like a rusty colour."

While a third fan joined the debate asking: "Why is the water always so brown ??"

Other fans jumped on to the post to explain. One said: “river bed is not red. There is a lot of peat in the water.”

Another added: “There are loads of rivers lakes and lochs in Scotland with that colour of water, it is a natural colour to do with all its surroundings.”

A third confirmed the reasoning behind the colour of the water, reiterating: "It’s the peat in the soil."

Other fans of the immensely popular Channel 5's Our Yorkshire Farm flocked to heap compliments on the shepherdess’s sensible approach and gorgeous looks.

One grateful follower wrote: “Very Wise. I hope you have all enjoyed your wet fun at the start of your summer holidays. Enjoy and make memories, thank you for posting Amanda.”

“Nice one for sharing the advice,” added another.

A third penned: “Stunning photo of you Amanda.”

While a fourth gushed: “Insane… And after 9 kids. I could only dream of looking this good.”

Amanda’s popularity has sky-rocketed thanks to her down to earth nature and sense of humour.

She recently released a new book, The Yorkshire Shepherdess, in which she revealed that “not having contractions when giving birth” has been one of her surprising side effects of having nine children and how she wondered whether she was too old now for a tenth child.
