    I am so very pleased with this koi!
    she is lovely. I was a little worried about the shiro on the face having some yellow but is a beautiful clean white.
    and the shiro across her back just sparkles

    Just beautiful Meg. I'm jealous and happy for you.

    As soon as I get home on Sunday I'm going to get some pics of mine and get them up.

    Enjoy

    Oh look at the lustre of that skin! Beautiful....

    Very VERY NICE, Meg! She is going to be wonderful to watch develop and I hope you post a lot of pictures of her in the coming year. Great pick.

    Princess Samuel is in the koi pond and holding her own with the larger fish....this little one is not shy! She does not swim hidding under the bigger koi sneaking out for a bite, rather she is around up and over swimming circle around then stealing the food out from under their noses.
    To date i am pleased with her progress, putting on size and the hi in her tail stop is fadding fast (there was a smudge of it there but now nearly gone)
    sumi on the right side of her face coming up, it will be interesing to see what it does, left check still clean white.
