Lot of development still to come on the Sanke despite the fact that it is already almost 60 cm which is a good sign. The sumi will consolidate and will create a good balance between the Hi and Sumi in time.
The Red circle over the eye might be a demerit but creates an interesting look and pattern.
Very sharp Kiwa.
Difficult to judge the Shiro from the photo but looks good.
Hi could extend a bit more to the back as it makes the Hi a bit too heavy on the front.

The Kohaku has very deep Hi and the right colour for further positive development.
No proper Adome. The Hi goes into the tail which is a demerit.
A bit unbalanced (right/left) but excellent menware.
Shiro of high qualility and good kiwa.

Both are excellent fish in my opinion.

Hi Paul

Thank you for your opinion. I agree with almost every thing you say. The Sanke will most probably only peak at 6 years of age it is now 3 years old. The photo's was also taken just after harvesting from the mud pond.

The Kohaku is 2 years old and was also photographed directly after harvesting from the same mud pond. The shiroji on both fish is exhalent snow white. Just remember I am not a professional photographer
Crying or Very sad But I do know a good Koi when I see one lol!

Hi Jaco

Die Sanke is die naweek wat verby is verkoop. Die persoon het haar op die foto gekoop na dat ek dit vir hulle gestuur het. Ek het die vis vir hulle gevlieg tot by hulle naste lughawe. Gewoonlik vra ons dat die kliente ons net bel en se hulle het die vis ontvang.

Hierdie klient het gebel en gese hulle is op die lughawe en wag vir die vis die vlug is vertraag, 'n uur later het hulle gebel en gese hulle het nou die vis. Hulle bel toe weer 'n uur later en se hulle het die vis nou in die dam en sy is ok en pragtig. die laaste sin het hulle so 10min gevat om oor te dra oor die foon. Die dame het so gehuil van opgewondenheid en blydskap dat sy skaars oor die foon kan praat.

Maar ja, sy is nou verkoop en die klient is gelukig en so ook ons.
