A Te Kuiti sheep belonging to New Zealand shearing legend Sir David Fagan is sporting a very Kiwi look, inspired by the All Blacks.

Pet sheep Boofy now has a mullet, courtesy of Sir David's son Jack, who is also a shearer.

"Jack was home after shearing in central Otago, and thought he would shear the sheep," Sir David said.

"He just said he was going to do one like the All Blacks, and he shore the sheep and left a bit of a mullet on.

"He gave it a trim afterwards - it worked out remarkely well."

Jack Fagan, 26, is following in his father's footsteps by travelling the world shearing, and is currently based in Western Australia.

A photo of Boofy's mullet on Facebook was spotted by All Black Brodie Retallick, who posted it on his Instragram account.


Sir David thinks his son will be chuffed by the response to Boofy's mullet cut when he returns from Australia.

"Yeah it's a bit of tongue-in-cheek... nice to have people smiling about something for a change," he said.
