    First there was Shrek the wooly sheep and now there's Mrs Gizzy Shrek

    First there was Shrek the wooly sheep and now there's Mrs Gizzy Shrek


    Gisborne farmer Rob Faulkner has finally nabbed a giant sheep that has eluded him for five years.

    This follows the discovery of the original Shrek from Central Otago's Tarras that became world famous in 2004

    Faulkner reckons the woolly ewe will give Shrek a good run for his money.

    He says the 60 centimetres long fleece is the longest he's ever seen

    Faulkner says the sheep has been hiding out in a forestry back paddock.
