Yorkshire shepherdess Amanda Owen has concerned her followers after she posted pics of her wild swimming with her children and there were questions about the water
Amanda Owen has sparked concerns among her followers after she posted pictures of her and her children wild swimming on a hot summer’s night.
The 46-year-old star of Channel 5’s hit docuseries Our Yorkshire Farm had shared some candid pics of her family enjoying time in the water near their Ravenseat Farm home.
While many praised the Yorkshire shepherdess for looking stunning in a bikini, there were some that were worried that she had led her family into a dangerous area.
The TV star had included their family favourite, Tony the pony, in their wild water dip and Amanda included information on wild swimming safety.
Amanda wrote on Instagram : “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 @theoutdoorsswimmingsociety via a story on how to enjoy the water safely.”
Despite this, some of her eagle eyed fans were worried about the colour of the water that the family were having a dip in.
One worried fan asked: “Why is the water red?”
Another echoed this, asking: “Why does the water look like a rusty colour.”
While a third was equally concerned: “Why is the water always so brown ??”
Fortunately the answer was not far away as some of Amanda’s followers replied with their thoughts.
Helpful followers came through with the answer, which is all to do with the amount of peat in the water.
The suggestion was that the water was a rusty colour due to the peat that it would have run though.
One follower replied: “I think it’s because it will have run through peat. Water in that part of the Dales makes an excellent Yorkshire Tea brew.”
Another confirmed: “The water will be peaty .. hence the colour.”
While a third wrote: “It’s the peat in the soil.”
