Úri hit the ground running and didn't stop. He has lovely conformation and lustrous light brown fiber. His blanket has remained a solid, greasy brown, however. Úri carries bloodlines from Bruxo and Uribe via MacGyver, as well as some of the best Bolivians.

Úri placed first in the brown juveniles at North American in 2012, where the judge called him "a complete package." Then, the 2012 MAPACA Jubilee boasted almost 300 suris competing, with some of the finest farms there from across the country - and Úri took a solid fourth in a gorgeous class of eight medium brown juvenile males. Judge Tim Lavan liked Úri's luster, fineness and density - we were delighted to stand in the ring with the farms represented.

Úri unfortunately has a significant allergy to blackfly bites - a real problem for an animal here in Maine. His father had the same issue, one of the major reasons we sold him (he had amazing fiber and a loving personality). We'd love to see him go to a farm where gnats, midges and/or blackflies are not a concern, and have priced him accordingly.
