There once was a sheep in New Zealand

We have stories that get passed on from one generation to the next.  Our favorite is about a sheep in New Zealand who never got a “shearing”.  His wool kept growing and growing until it was so heavy that he could no longer stand under the weight of his own coat.  Finally, seventy pounds of wool was sheared off him.  That’s the weight of an average fourth grader!
