She captioned the series of photos: "Buzzcuts available & nothing else. These are hoggs ( 14 months old) and this is their first ever appointment at the salon. They are the wooliest that they will ever be so are first in the queue."

Fans were pleased to see Amanda back on their feeds, as recently the 47-year-old has avoided sharing photos of herself, instead choosing to post her children, livestock or the gorgeous views at Ravenseat.

This hasn't been easy, but we both believe it's the right choice for the future of our family.
