Whole-ly sheep! Ewe found with a massively overgrown fleece weighing 30 KILOS after it wandered off a farm months ago

By Matt Ogilvie and Nicole Low for Daily Mail Australia and AAP

Buckland farmer Derek Turvey found the ewe wandering around his south-eastern Tasmania farm. He called her Sheila and he believes that the animal hasn’t been shorn in over seven years. The farmer has laid down a challenge to any shearer who is game enough to shear Sheila’s thick coat. He expects Sheila’s fleece to weigh up to 30 kilograms after she has been relived of her heavy burden. Chris the sheep holds the record for the most wool sheared from a sheep in September, which is 41.10kg.
