Sheep Wanted To Let His Hair Grow So He Dodged Haircuts For 6 Years.

Remember when you were a kid, and your mom relentlessly pestered you to get a haircut? This is kind of like that, except with less hair, and more wool.

A Merino sheep named Shrek has avoided being sheared for the last six years. Whenever his flock's owners tried to bring him in for a shearing, Shrek would hide in a cave until they left. As smart as he is, he was finally caught - and it seems like it was just in time, too. Shrek was in serious need of a haircut.

This is what it looks like when a sheep isn't sheared for six years.

When he was finally found, he wasn't even recognized as a sheep. It took herders a minute to figure it out.

There was enough wool on his body to produce 20 men's suits.

That's nearly 60 extra pounds of weight that Shrek simply had to be freed from.

And once he was, he sure looked good. In fact, he's probably thinking that he wished he'd done it sooner.

It's like they always say: A new haircut can mean a whole new ewe.
