In 1797 the first merino sheep were landed in Australia. Unlike earlier breeds, this Spanish variety was much better suited to the Australian environment and was a formidable wool producer. The Spanish monarchy owned one of the finest flocks of transient merinos in Spain and tightly controlled access to the breed. Exporting merinos was banned, on pain of death, prior to 1765. After this date, limited numbers of the renowned Escorial flock were sent to breeders in other countries and closely monitored.

When Luna the sheep was found on a rural property in Tasmania's south-east, her fleece was so overgrown she was blinded by wool and couldn't move.

The four-year-old ewe was also heavily infested with lice and her wool was matted from constant scratching.

The new property owner, who had recently bought the land near Richmond, came across the distressing sight on Monday.

The man used his tractor to move Luna into his ute, then drove her the three-hour return trip south to Brightside Animal Sanctuary at Cygnet.

"It was like she'd given up hope. She had no energy and no will to live left."

Luna gets her first haircut

The shearer who clipped Luna believed the ewe had never been shorn before.

"As soon as that wool came off it was amazing, within 20 minutes Luna was walking in a straight line," Ms Haswell said.

"She's bright and hanging out now with the bottle-fed lambs."

Luna is still acclimatising to being shorn, and on extra chilly days wears two jumpers, including a polar fleece designed for greyhounds who also live at the animal sanctuary.

Ms Haswell said she had been overwhelmed by the compassion shown by the farmer who had asked for updates on Luna and was now following her progress on Facebook.

Ms Haswell said another six stray sheep were believed to be on the property where Luna was found, and she believed the previous owner would try to retrieve them.

"Otherwise, we will go up there on horses and ride the property and get them. We will find them," Ms Haswell said.

"If they are in hill country they disappear and aren't readily spottable," said Ms Davis.
