Is this New Zealand's oldest sheep?

From Morning Report, 7:50 am on 16 May 2019

A 24-year-old sheep, which lives on a sunny hilltop just outside Nelson city, could be New Zealand's oldest. Busby, a Texel-Romney cross wether, was born in the Wairarapa, but soon after was brought to Nelson with his twin. His owners say the secret to his longevity has been a diet of fresh fruit, sunshine and plenty of love and attention. Our Nelson reporter Tracy Neal went to check him out.
