Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When he was finally found in 2004, he had gone unsheared for so long that he'd accumulated 60 pounds of wool on his body- enough to make 20 suits!
Shrek was a Merino sheep, a castrated male, belonging to South Island, New Zealand, who gained international fame in 2004 owing to his gigantic coat of fleece. Shrek became famous after escaping his enclosure and evading the shearers for six years by hiding in caves. Merino sheep are usually shorn annually but Shrek managed to escape the blade for six years straight. When he was finally caught, the sheep was unrecognizable.
"The danger may exceed thy resistance, BUT NOT GOD'S ASSISTANCE; the enemies' power may surpass thy strength, their subtlety outwit thy prudence, BUT NEITHER CAN EXCEL the wisdom and might of God THAT IS WITH THEE." ~ Abraham Wright
