HI, Wink

Throughout winter my breeding Koi and babies have been in the mud pond, kind of neglected... Sad

On Sunday morning 29th 10am I will be netting the pond to get them out for conditioning hopefully starting spawning mid September. If anyone is in the area and would like to pop in you are more than welcome, there will be snacks, drinks and I am sure great Koi conversation.

See you then.

Regards

Hi, Smile

On Sunday I finally got round to dragging the mud pond and seeing how the Koi were doing. I was pleasantly surprised, to see that over the last three months they had grown and the females were starting to get heavy in eggs.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr17

I was glad to get assistance from Matthew and Talya better known on the forum as Mat Snow we had a great day, thank you.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr10

First out of the net was a Sakuma Gin Shiro this fish just gets better never been shown but if not sold, she will be next year and used as a breeder. Her skin, sumi and lustre are exceptional.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr11

Sakai Hiroshima Gin Showa just gets bigger but doesn’t seem to want to develop sumi? But her babies look great. Hopefully the new males to be used this year will produce something exceptional.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr12

A superb Isa Showa this male has exceptional body, pattern and skin quality, also Shiro form Takahashi (This Shiro bloodline was lost in the previous earthquake and no longer bred by Takahashi, I have two males only)

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr13

Matthew checking the quality of a Showa and Shiro male.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr10

Two female Sanke, the big one is Sakai Matsunosuke the other is a two year old superb overall quality and a big future.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr12

Two photos of Showa, both will be contenders on next month’s Baby Koi Show.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr20

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr14

Isa Showa female and Shinoda Hi Utsuri male and a Pongoi Shiro Tosai this fish show’s a lot of promise.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr14

The young showa in the middle its sumi just gets better, wish it would grow? It’s from Murayama. The other two are Isa Showa.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr15

My number one Takahashi Shiro this fish has won on every show it has been entered in and just gets better (With the bloodline lost, this fish is worth its weight in gold to me) also his daughter in the bowl, hopefully taking its father qualities. The Showa is from Isa Niigata.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr15

A group of Isa showa and a Pongoi Shiro Utsuri its sumi and pattern shows a lot of promise.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr16

Yohei Hybrid “Babe,” she just gets bigger its skin quality and sumi development just gets better. I haven’t measured her but the bowl is 75cm,

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr23

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr17

Isa showa and one old pale looking male Ochiba that still produces beautiful babies. To take the pressure of him I have purchased new males from two established bloodlines hope they meet his standard.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr24

Mother and daughter, This Shiro is from Saki Hiroshima the fathers are Takahashi my number one pairing, their daughter is very good hopfully she will continue to develop the qualities of her parents

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr19

Kindi Showa and Pongoi bred Matsubabaki and Shiro, all showing good promise for the future.

SPRING 2012 Showa_10

Zoro, a Sakuma female Showa her quality is improving hope to breed her with new Matsunosuke males this year.

SPRING 2012 Showa_10

My number one Takahashi male, (This Koi took reserve grand champion in 2009 Baby Koi Show) he just gets better.

SPRING 2012 Mud_dr20

Matthew selected and purchased this beautiful Saki Matsunosuke Sanke, (or was it Talya)


It was a great day hope you have enjoyed the pictures, if any of the Koi are of interest to you, please drop me an e-male.
Regards

James Smile

Hi, Neli, Smile

Thank you, she just gets better in all aspects, this year I need to be serious with her spawning as her offspring although small look good.

Also added a new picture of a bowl of Sanke
