Super Fluffy Sheep!

This is Shrek the Sheep. He gained international fame in 2004 after he avoided being caught and shorn for six years. Merinos are normally shorn annually, but Shrek apparently hid in caves, avoiding muster.  His fleece contained enough wool to make suits for 20 men, weighing 27 kg (60 lb) — an average Merino fleece weighs around 4.5 kg (9.9 lb).

  2. I really do wish your blog had some more content. Pictures are fine, but they're meant for filles, not to be the content itself. But they again, i do love crazy pics, so +1.

  3. To Micheal. I know my blog is not very deep in content. I purposely avoid writing too much. There are many other blogs out there that have heavy word counts. I see my blog as an outlet for people who are seeking an escape. People that want to read on and on know where to go. Those that are looking for a respite from the real world via a quick chuckle can hopefully find this on my blog. However, I do appreciate your comment. If you look at my early posts, you can see that they were just pictures. I currently post a few sentences about the pictures I know post.

  6. Shrek would be banned from our local shopping centre for wearing a hoodie...

    P.S. This is your blog and if you want to post just photo's that is your choice. I happen to like writing long meandering posts which probably put off many readers but that’s my choice…

  8. I bet he was kicking himself when he realized how much better he felt after they cut all that off. Sheep really are pretty stupid.
