"SHREK - the woolly merino sheep, missing for years" Cromwell Travelogue by kiwi

Cromwell Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 53 photos

28 April 2004 I was in Cromwell for the shearing of Shrek the merino sheep who had been in the nearby hills for years without being shorn. It was big news here in NZ, as he was carrying so much wool. Television cameras were there to witness the event, and to send this cute story around the world.
Blessing was given to use the name Shrek, and his publicity was to be used to help the charity for cancer children.
