A fine-wool sheep now has a load off its shoulders after being relieved of its 21kg fleece.

Dubbed “Mr T”, the three-quarter merino from Andrew Paterson’s Matakanui Station, near Omakau, was found with three years’ of wool growth about a week ago at Northburn Station, near Cromwell, before he was returned home.

On Monday, champion shearer Dion Morrell, of Alexandra, shore 21.2kg from him.
