Wool blind and suffering under the weight of his massive fleece, he was taken down to the homestead where some local teens nicknamed him Shrek because he looked like an ogre. A striking photograph of him made the front page of the Otago Daily Times and from there every media outlet in the country, and then the world, wanted to know about this hermit merino, who had evaded mustering for five years. Shrek the sheep became a key fundraiser for Cure Kids, the charity that supports` research into life-threatening childhood diseases, and he has attended events the length of the country — even travelling by helicopter to an iceberg floating near the south coast of New Zealand. Shrek the sheep's strong personality means that he's a favourite with children and adults alike. Shrek: The story of a Kiwi icon is full of great, classic tales of Shrek the sheep's adventures and is handsomely illustrated with many excellent photographs. John Merriam owns Bendigo Station in Central Otago, where Shrek the sheep lives, he's the author of the best-selling Dust to Gold: The inspiring story of Bendigo Station, and he is best known as the Father of Shrek the sheep. Contents include: Shrek The Famous Sheep,, Finding Shrek the Hermit Merino, Overnight Celebrity, The Big Shearing, Shreek Meets the Prime Minister, O the Road to Charity, Shrek’s Friends at Tarras School, Shearing on an Iceberg, Sky Tower Shearing, Shreks Home at Bendigo Station, The Guy Who Fenced Shreks Block, The House of Shrek, Shreks Pet Hate, The Power of Shreks Story, Losing the Mother of Shrek, Shrek Goes on Holiday.
