Episode 7 - Helen Owens - The Wernbach Shepherdess My Rural Tribe

    • Society & Culture

It was a joy to speak with Helen the @wernbachshepherdess, especially in these strange times of Covid-19, of week 4 of Lock-In.

I follow Helen on instagram and love seeing life from her smallholding in Flintshire.  Helen and her husband started their own flock of South Down sheep, for no other reason that they look cute, but have soon realised what a great terminal sire they are! With help from breeders, friends , neighbouring farmers and Farming Connect, they have received help and advice as well as the old 'get stuck in and have a go'.  We spoke about the joy each season and Helens slight obsession with her flocks sex life come September! Being open about her post-natal depression and how having to get on and out to look after the livestock with a new born baby has given her confidence in herself.

And in the great words of Chaka Khan 'I'm every woman' will now follow me as I strut around in my waterproofs! Hurrah!
