Sheep not shorn in 6 years

Ok so this topic is a tad pointless, but I am sort of mesmerized by this sheep. Seriously look at that guy, how the heck did it not die of heat stroke at some point? Also I hope he gets trimmed soon, I can only imagine how happy that sheep would act afterwords. I really want a video of that tbh.

Learn something new every day. In this case that shorn is actually a word...

Looks like the big blocky animals you would find in games.

And now I finally understand why the sheep in Wallace and Gromit is called Shaun.

That sheep looks brilliant though.

The wool looked fuckin' pristine under the surface.

I can only imagine how heavy whole thing would be after sufficient rain.

Sean the sheep has been shaved! Fifty-two pounds of fleece which is amazing, but unfortunately 60 pounds is the record. Also I was hoping he would love getting that wool coat off, but he didn't seem to be overly happy. Be happy dammitt!

This is how nature intended the sheep to look. And he's looking fine

That is awesome. Surprised that sheep can move as well as it can with all that wool.

Makes you wonder how much wool production was sped up by domestication. That would be a killer heat blanket in the summer.
