Shrek the sheep. Shrek, the New Zealand merino sheep which spent 6 years on the run from his owners, finally had his long-postponed encounter with a pair of shears. I can't look at these photos without laughing. What a champ!

This NZ sheep avoided shearing for 6 years by hiding in caves ... it had enough fleece for 20 suits when it was finally sheared. Hopefully it felt a bit cooler and lighter afterwards!

Meet Shrek, he is a merino sheep and one of New Zealand’s most beloved icons. He was found wandering the wilderness on his own so debilitated by his overgrown coat because his fleece hadn’t been sheared in 6 years! He was caught in 2004 and they removed 60 pounds of fleece from him.

Famous Shrek the sheep - "Christ can easily lift the burdens we bear, if only we stop hiding. He can shave off our "fleece," that is, our self-imposed burdens brought about by wandering from our Good Shepherd." - http://m.godvine.com/read/shrek-279.html
