shrek-the-sheep-3[6]Some breeds of sheep naturally shed their wool each year, but Merino sheep, typically raised for meat, never shed their fleece. Hidden behind cave walls, far from any shearing blades, Shrek’s wool continued to grow, and grow, and grow some more.

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!

Shrek is not the only sheep to hate the shearing process, although it’s a quick and pain-free ordeal that sheep get more and more comfortable with as they age. Baby sheep tend to have the most disdain for shearing, causing a lot of commotion the first few times they experience the process.
