I’ happy to announce that our new concrete pond(facility) is completed. 10 ponds of 15t for multi purpose and 1 pond of 70t for keeping. We started construction at the end of summer and finally we made it . . . We asked constructor to complete out frame before snow and they finished it without taking holiday. Then, we started set up of electricity, inside construction, filteration and finally released koi into new pond. We will utilize this new facility and breed more koi which make your koi life more happy. We also would like to start keeping koi in concrete pond during summer time as well.
On Dec 3rd, Hide(Hidemasa Hirasawa) who is main labor of our farm finally got married. Congratulations! The name of bride is “Sumie” and she is very sweet and charming. She is too much for Hide!! Thank you for inviting all of our family and we really enjoy his wedding.
It was so funny to see Hide wearing Tuxedo because I’ve seen only working cloths everyday.
It was very impressive with letter from Sumie to her parents.
It was so funny of Hide’s small mustache and secret booths which makes him 10cm higher.
It was great, wonderful and cheerful wedding. Wish you be happy for long . . . .
Now a days, we are doing first culling. Under the strong sunshine, we have culled children of first paring parents and main parents with excitement and anxiety. As I reported, spawning was taken place later than used to be, however, may be because of high temperature, we have been able to do first culling after 20 to 25days from spawning. Therefore, progress of breeding is almost same as usual. Today, I happened to find very rare tadpole. This is tadpole of American bullfrog but I think this is extraordinary because this is “Tancho tadpole”! I’ve seen many kinds of tadpole at mud pond but I have never seen “Tancho” one before. . . Our new staff, “Muto” will take care of these because he is expert of reptiles and amphibian. When it turn to be real “Tacho frog”, I will let you know.
