I can see why the thread was closed, some of the posts were quite rank, but why close it when this post is made?

Oh dear, and men never have affairs while they have children, even if their wife is ill., or one I know of even pregnant, I just admire her energy.


Why not close it when remarks are made on her breasts for example or her teeth or the potential size of her vagina? f**king double standards yet again!

Men have affairs all the time, that's true, but very few men are in the public every 5 mins saying how important the family and farm is to them, so when she gets caught shagging someone else it is quite surprising.

It is another double down on women in farming, I see it all the time, the incredulosity that a wummin can cowp a sheep or can reverse into a bay at the market. Nothing special, just part of the job that no man would remark on if it was another man. Plenty of vids of young guys on youtube etc with their tops off working in ag!
Plenty of good women in ag that never make a fuss out of being a women, a hell of a lot (my mrs being one of them) that do jobs that they weren’t intending to do to help there partners and get very little recognition.

i'm with you 100%.....didn't read much of the thread TBH.....can see why she's good woman in some respects but also why she attracts critiscism

personally i don't think it was your post that got thread deleted....it was headed that way well before but the site does try to have 'light touch moderation'

your post only confirmed moderators conclusion 'yeah this thread is upsetting ppl':)

I know several women in agriculture who are a bit embarrassed and annoyed by the whole thing, they suggest that if you want to be in agriculture just go and do it.

I tend to agree, if you're a minority who wants to fit into any walk of life you cannot expect be recognized as different

Many a big farming family that is run by a matriarch. One big farming operation round here mother is very much in charge and everyone knows it.

took a tractor into cheffins and set on undoing straps on trailer , and these two oldish boys came over and say would you like some help my dear , 😁 why she asked i loaded it strapped it and going to unload it , they where flabagasted that a slip of a lass could do that
then they go onto ask if did any thing else on farm

and runs our lexicon if i busy with some thing else

Moderators are volunteers, all with jobs of there own, we're not sitting around watching threads continously waiting for the exact momment we think it should be closed. It was probably closed at the point one of us got online and saw the reports and caught up with the threads content.
And now we have another thread running on the topic :rolleyes:

Very disappointed at some of the comments on here regarding particularly Amanda Owen.
Some of them are grossly sexist and possibly defamatory.
Did some of the posters not think that these comments may be read by her family or children who know the Owen family at school.
I suspect if you google the Yorkshire farm this thread will be pretty high up the results
I really dont think this sad story should be an issue for open discussion
This couple may not be everyones cup of tea in farming terms, but they have done a lot for the industry in PR term,s
Click to expand...Any decent mods would’ve shut this thread down from the start .

in other thread.
I was going to tag @Bald Rick into it but it was already closed for further replies
 
I remember an old boy in the pub that heard anyone running somebody down used to say “you’ll find we all live in glass houses if you want to start throwing stones”
Running people down is the only way some people can make themselves feel better about their own lot.

Re. Emma Gray, it seems to annoy some that she and her family got a tenancy on a Scottish Island and seem to take exception to her having an extra income from selling dogs and TV work, but that's just the little bit that they see and read.
In her 20s Emma left her family farm and went out on her own to start from scratch on a 100ac wet isolated area of unmaintained off grid, upland.
She bought her own stock and worked hard on surrounding farms for income to live off, she later used her dog training skills to breed, bring on and sell dogs as well as writing books.

I would class her as someone who has worked from nothing up and has used whatever opportunities that have come along to help her on her way.

Did any of her critics try for any of the Island farms that were up for rent at that time?
If not how can Emma be criticized for doing something that her critics can't even he bothered to do.

She’s a good girl, that farm she used to have looked a bad place to farm.

In respect of some of the ‘nasty’ posts, my mother use to say “ If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all.”
So well done the mods for shutting it down.
I reported 3 of the later posts on that thread as they were extremely rude and although the thread is closed, the posts have not been removed.

Edit: They have been deleted now.

As I said on the other thread, nobody knows and it's nobody's business what happens during a separation.

This link would appear to suggest that the farm and farm working partners will still feature in future TV programmes

I would imagine there are many on farms and amongst the general public that can relate to relationship breakdowns

Improving farm safety is the key aim of HSENI’s and the FSP’s work and...
