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!
Sometimes you need to let go: Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When Shrek was finally found in 2004, the sheep had gone unsheared for so long that it had accumulated 60 pounds of wool on its body.
Here’s what happens if you don’t shear a sheep for 6 years – He has to be guarded 24 hours a day, and placed in a special spot at night so he doesn't tip over. If he fell, he would have to wait for a rescue, he can't get up on his own.
