Arin is a compact true black male that has remained as blue black as his mother after multiple shearings. He has a correct build, with a smooth, cool fleece with nice luster and good density. He's also a sweetheart to work with.

Arin stayed in the ring in a very competitive class at Nationals, placing fifth in a class of seven. He then placed second behind a brown in the combined darks class at North American. His juvenile fleece placed first in both the spinoff and cottage fleece competition at the 2014 Suri Network All Suri show - judge Wini LaBreque commented "Great hand - fairly uniform with excellent luster." In 2017, Arin placed first and was highest scoring black in the Suri Network cottage fleece competition; his luster remains very good.
