Today, I would like to introduce two 2sai, 48cn and 51cm, in fact, those are male. Lots of people misunderstand this koi as female because it has high body and soft beni like female. In addition, good pattern . . . The good point of next 51cm koi is shiroji. Absolutely “snow white”. It doesn’t have much sumi but good beni covers those minus point. Shiroji, luster, beni, body with room to grow more bigger. Both of them has quality like a female. people think that male can not be grown but it’s wrong. Good male grow as same as female.
Couple days ago in sunny day, the water of mud pond which contain 4sai was very clear so I hide in the bush for 10 min and wait for koi. . . Here they are! I hadn’t seen any of them during summer time but I hopefully could see! Because they are very sensitive for sound, I filmed movie with silence. This year, we had very big rain in summer and was worry about their development but I think they should be fine. I believe their body got fat enough. This is rare shot because I hardly see them so clearly.
This is 2sai Kohaku, 57cm, offspring of Shirayuki, again. This koi has more red beni color than previous one I introduced on this blog but it is elegant and bright color. The character of this koi is beautiful Shiroji and big pectoral fin. You may not believe this is 2sai seeing from movie because of face and back born. It looks like iron bar is in it! As same as previous one, this is also offspring from Shirayuki. Let’s see which type would develop more.
This is 2sai Kohaku, 54cm, offspring of Shirayuki. Check this beautiful, stream hi pattern. Quality of beni and Shiroji are very nice. The beni is very shinning and Kiwa is strong and sharp. Lots of koi from Shirayuki have unique head and body structure but this koi has smooth, softness and room on body. Because we just started using Shirayuki as parent koi since these two years, we don’t know whether this kind of koi or stout koi become good . . . but . . . it is worth to check it out!
Very interesting Tancho Showa was harvested. It is 3sai and 62.5cm with very strong impact. Some people would not like it because of strong Sumi. However, from breeders’ point of view, it is truly rare and very hard to breed this kind of Tancho Showa. Truly red beni, good quality sumi and bulky body. The amount of Sumi is also character and attractiveness of this koi. Please imagine when it becomes more big. I would call it “Deep Impact”(It is one of the best horse in Japanese Horse Race history.)
