Shrek 2 found in Gis­borne

The Timaru Herald - - National News -

First there was the South Is­land Shrek who came to our at­ten­tion in 2004 – now a ri­val has been found in Gis­borne. She has fi­nally been caught at Wairakaia Sta­tion and has been given a name – Gizzy Shrek. Farmer Rob Faulkner says he has been on her tail for years. Gizzy Shrek has never been han­dled. ‘‘She has not got an ear­mark and has still got her tail on and she is a very healthy young an­i­mal.’’ And her fleece is spec­tac­u­lar. ‘‘I es­ti­mate her fleece length would be 60 cen­time­tres.’’ Gizzy Shrek is a coop­worth rom­ney cross and is set to star at the up­com­ing Gis­borne A & P show, where her mag­nif­i­cent fleece will be shorn by one of New Zealand’s top shear­ers. Faulkner says she will live out the rest of her days on the farm. - RNZ
