Oberon is beautifull true to type dark brown suri with a fine and lustrous fleece. His father, Snowshill Raphael, is a show winning mid-brown suri and his mother, Bozedown Dividend, is a very fine and lustrous light fawn/beige suri and was Champion Coloured Suri at the 2006 South of England Show and is still being placed first in fleece shows as a senior. His grandmother, Snowshill Letitia, was placed first in every show entered as both a junior and as an intermediate.

The renowned judge; Val Fullerlove, described Oberon (at the 2011 National Show) as being one of the very best brown Suris that she had seen.
(NB. His fleece stats are for a 22 month fleece. If tested at 12 months growth, his fleece micron would likely be a bit lower).
At the 2013 Royal Three Counties Show, Nick Harrington Smith described him as having perfect conformation with exceptional substance of bone combined with a fine, dense, even coloured and very lustrous fleece with good lock structure.

Oberon started working in 2012 and his first four cria were a fawn out of a fawn mother, a fawn out of a white, a mid brown out of a white and a black out of a fawn. All four are solid colours have excellent suri fleece characteristics. Oberon has produced a number of other nice cria, a number of whom have won show championships and several have retained superfine fleeces (despite his own fleece, and that of many of the mothers, not being so!)

Oberon is another Suri Stud who produces much finer fleece than his own. Many of his cria have sub 20 micron fleeces (some sub 16 micron) even when mums have relatively high micron.
