Two farmers at the center of a row that has gone viral on TikTok have hit back at their millionaire consultant neighbor and claimed they are ‘exhausted’ from lambing season.

Rosie Howes, 27, and her partner Scott Brame, 30, made headlines yesterday after posting a TikTok video of the confrontation with their neighbor Philip Cholerton, 56, over the hedges.

But today Mr Brame hit back and said he had a ‘short fuse’ because he and his partner Miss Howes were ‘busy lambing’ so they gave it to Mr Cholerton along with “the two barrels”.

He said: “I don’t usually make a fuss, but I had a short fuse that day because we were busy lambing.

“We were literally almost done lambing and I was doing 18 hour days so he got it with both barrels. I’m not like that normally. It was just the heat of the moment. We didn’t expect it to take off like it did.

The couple who herd sheep on 200 acres of rented farmland were furious after finding the branches piled up in their field at Winfarthing near Diss, Norfolk.

Rosie filmed Scott as he picked up the clippings with the fork of his tractor and dumped them in the garden across the hedge.

His video, which has been viewed over 620,000 times, shows the couple trading insults with their middle-aged neighbor after he confronted them.

Mr Brame explained the collapse that occurred on April 9, saying he lost his temper due to the pressure of working long hours during the lambing season for the 160 ewes he and Rosie herds in the fields of the Diss region and around Beccles. , Suffolk.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, he added: ‘We already had problems with him cutting the hedge and throwing it on our side last year. Our owners were upset and kindly asked him to clean it and he asked men who worked for him to clean it.

“But they just dragged the pieces of hedge across the field, leaving pieces everywhere.

“This time they were very upset because they’re old and they asked me if there was anything I could do about it, so I said, ‘I’ll return it if you like.’ They said, ‘Oh yeah, that would be very friendly of you,’ so we did.

“But he was there when we put him back. I was so tired, I just tried a little. What struck me was when he said, “It’s your fault you never cut my hedge.” But it was his hedge to cut. He is not a farmer and he has a fairly large garden.

Rosie filmed Scott as he picked up the clippings with the fork of his tractor and dumped them in the garden across the hedge.

Rosie who lives with Scott in Botesdale, Suffolk, told MailOnline she ‘hasn’t really spoken’ to her neighbor in Winfarthing.

When asked if she would try to reconcile with him, she replied, “I think we’ll just leave it as it is.”

Rosie’s video posted to her TikTok account norfolkshepherdess101 showed Scott picking up the hedges in his tractor with the caption: “Cleaning up nice neighbor’s hedge after it was dumped on our side without permission.”

Although not identified in the video, MailOnline can also reveal he is former Shell executive Philip Cholerton, 56, who lives on a £1million Georgian farmhouse.

His video, which has been viewed over 620,000 times, shows the couple trading insults with their middle-aged neighbor after he confronted them.

Mr Cholerton bought his five-bedroom Grade Two listed house in 2013 and is a partner in London-based consultancy and services company NovAzure.

The marketing expert is described on the company’s website as having 25 years of experience as a “strategic leader in the retail and oil and energy industries”.

The video shows Mr. Cholerton appearing to complain, but he is barely heard due to the noise of the machinery, so Scott interrupts him and Rosie shouts, “You threw him here.”

He replies, “Every year you leave it in a mess, you have no right to do that.”

Scott can then be heard saying, “You have no right to throw it that way.”

The neighbor replies, “You never helped the hedge.

Scott makes him repeat what he’s saying, before he replies, “That’s your hedge mate.”

Mr. Cholerton admits “I know” before Scott asks: “So what the fuck are you cutting it up and throwing it over this side?”

The marketing boss then adds: “You don’t give a damn. You never, ever cut that side.

Scott replied: ‘Why should I? It’s your hedgerow’, before Mr Cholerton accused him of leaving ‘all that weed’ on his grass.

The farmer replied, “I’ll leave what I want.”

After more inflammatory insults with the two using the ‘f***’ word, Mr. Cholerton replies, “Well, well, I can put it back on if needed.”

Rosie then intervenes saying, “You’re not going to put it back, we’ll keep putting it back here, you can call the police.”

Mr. Cholerton then begins to storm off, yelling, “Oh p*** off, dirty work.”

Rosie replies: ‘No, we’re not nasty jobs’ before Mr Cholerton hurls one final bizarre insult, saying, ‘You’re a stinky, miserable person’, before adding ‘Yes, f*** off.”

Rosie yells back, “Yeah, fuck off.”

The video amassed over 14,000 likes and over 1,800 comments from TikTok users which were divided by Rosie’s approach.

One user wrote: “The hedge is on his side of the fence. Even if you cut it, you are legally allowed to put the cuttings on its side.

Another said: “You are absolutely right but maybe a little less language with the guy would have been better. Let the guy embarrass himself with the authorities.

While a third commented: ‘Just give his property back like any good neighbor would.’

Rosie said earlier this week: ‘The hedge was planted without permission a long time ago, the hedge is her side of the fence.

“He entered our field without permission from the landowners to cut it, then he had the nerve to leave his cuttings outside the fence, which is dangerous for our sheep.”

She added: “He has done this before and made a mess on our pitch. He also lets his septic tank drain into our ditch, which is quite disgusting.

“The relationship with this neighbor has always been reciprocal until now. His reaction made me laugh.

“He insulted us before the video and was very rude which is why I decided to film – but I haven’t seen him since the incident.”
