LOST SHEEP: Shepherd Daniel Devine carries this merino ("Shrek"), which has evaded shearing for six years on New Zealand's South Island - and has the wool to prove it.

LOOK AT THAT SHEEP! He looks like a fluffy little beige cloud. Shear, shear!

Oh dear! Think of all the yarn that would come from shearing that! And who knew shepherds were so dang cute?!

I'm with Strizz. Cute shepherd, Kiwi accent, all the wool I can handle...marry me. I have no problem relocating.

I'm with J Strizzy and Em -- when I saw the headline ("Media Darling") it took me a moment to notice the sheep! Yowsa.

ROFLOL, are we sure that is only one sheep???!!!

I would have concerns about any man who would put six years worth of dirty fleece on his head and smile. I'd probably want to see his health certificate also. Haven't any of you girls been raised on a farm?? These two guys may have very well been competing for the same female's attention.
Ooops..........did I just type that?

Sorry....as my eight year old would say "That was inappropriate".
Some of us just can't get above our raising.

SHEAR THAT SHEEPY!! Cripes, that fleece must be dang heavy.. Off with it!!

I'm a little slow -- just posted about this sheep! No, wait, it's not my fault; I'm in a different hemisphere. Oh well, can't get too much wool in the knitblog ring, can we?

I guess I'm just too good a shepherd to enjoy that picture. That poor sheep is lucky to be alive, it'll be a wonder if it's skin isn't horrid, and the wool will probably be unusable.
Oh well, I'll just go back to obsessing about getting ready to load the sheep for Maryland. We leave Monday morning.

The story at Maeve's described him as "well-known shepherd Daniel Devine" (presumably already well-known before the encounter with the long-haired sheep). I wonder in how many countries you could find the combination "well-known shepherd" used.
