Day 22:

Sheep

Farm bred sheep do need to be shorn, they do not shed their wool naturally.

Meet Shrek , a Merino wether who avoided the shearing roundup for 6yrs by hiding in caves 

- was the only one of 17,000 sheep that avoided being shorn

- when discovered had 27kgs of wool, this will make enough suits for 20 men

<span 1.3;"="">- became a celebrity at 10yrs old, died at 17yrs old, average life of farm sheep is 6yrs
