Give me a home where the sheep do roam

In February 2021, the rescue of a runaway Merino sheep gained international fame when it was found in the outskirts of Victoria, Australia with 35 kilograms (77 lbs!) of wool on its back. This extraordinary occurrence was simply the result of a lack of contact.

If Merinos are not sheared by humans, their fleece will continue to grow indefinitely. Picture above is Hampshire Down Sheep by Wendy Darker and the adorable flock is one of the various breeds of Merino sheep in full wool.
