Shrek the Sheep

Shrek the Sheep

This is Shrek the Sheep. He became famous in 2004 when he was found looking like this, because he’d been hiding from his shepherd for six years.

When he was shaved, his fleece weighed an amazing 60 pounds. When sheep are shorn regularly, their fleech weighs about 10 pounds.

Poor Shrek had to carry that great burden on his back simply because he had run off and hidden from his shepherd.

Jesus said,

“I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father.” John 10:14-15


“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Phil 4 Don't worry, Pray always

  1. Wow. His fleece weighed as much as my dog. Maybe it weighed that much because there were 2 or 3 lost border collies caught in there, still struggling to get out. If Shrek was a Mexican sheep, that could be equivalent to 25 chihuahuas. 😯


  2. Good heavens, that poor sheep must have been really hot in the summer!
