Which begs the question; do you prefer woolly or freshly shorn?

Ah, the eternal sheep schism: both have their advantages. When bare it can be tricky to keep hold of them, but therein lies scope for many a satisfying chase. Ultimately, it depends on whether or not you like to run for your honey, so to speak. [Smile]

I heard it wasn't good for the sheep to go that long without being shorn. Is it, Spungo?

However, I just look at that and think of the wool and what I could knit with it. [Smile]

An aussie is on holiday in NZ, and sees a farmer in the field doing a 'Spungo' with a sheep.

He stops his car, and calls out to the farmer,
"Oi ! Back in Oz, we'd shear that !"

The farmer looks up, and without missing a thrust, replies
<NZ Accent>
"I'm not shearing this with anybody !"
</NZ Accent>

I guess it was, the thing is that being a merino Shrek's fleece didn't fall out as it would have with other types of sheep which is why it got so long, it's amazing he survived as long. Shrek's owner decided to make the shearing of shrek a fund raiser for a local charity curekids, from the sale of wool clips and from a couple of jerseys that were made from the wool, as well as the ticket to the event. What was surprising is the amount of overseas interest there was.

There are a couple of good before and after photos at www.shrekauction.com

<obligatory-aussie-joke>
A kiwi was rowing down the Waikato river singing to himself "God of nations..."

Aliens just happen to flying by and decided to see what would happen if they took quarter of his brain away but leaving him otherwise unhurt, so they used their ray gun and took a quarter of his brain away, and to their surpise the kiwi kept rowing and singing
"...hear our voices we entreat.."

Astounded they decided to see what would happen if they took half of the kiwi's brain away, so they used their ray gun and took half of his brain away and the kiwi kept rowing and singing
"...God defend New Zealand..."

So the aliens decided to find out what would happen if they took the rest of the brain away and waited to find out what would happen. The bloke in the boat, scratched his head a little, started rowing again and begain to sing...
"Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilida..."
