Shrek, a Merino male sheep, was born in 1994 at Bendigo Station near Tarras, New Zealand. In 1998, Shrek escaped to the high country of Central Otago and for six years, lived off the land. In the winter, he had little to no food available, but survived. In 2004, Shrek was found hiding in a rock cave near the Bendigo high country ranch. Shrek was practically unrecognizable. The wool covered over 75% of his body and his fleece weighed 27 kg (an average Merino fleece weighing around 4.5 kg).

Shrek, the sheep, escaped into a cave and avoided being shaved for 6 years. In those 6 years, he grew enough wool to make suits for 20 men and his coat weighed about "Bahahaha. I have the best wool coat in all the land!
