I learned about this today and am immediately sharing because I love it that much.
There was a sheep in New Zealand who, by hiding in caves, successfully avoided being shorn for 6 consecutive years. When he was finally caught in 2004, his fleece weighed 60 lbs and contained enough wool to make suits for 20 men. He was shorn on national television and became a national icon, even meeting the NZ prime minister. I can't look at these photos without laughing. What a champ!
