    "Purchased" Shiro utsuri form Nisei koi farm

    NS08-551 Shiro Utsuri 14-16 inches

    You all know i really REALLY can't afford to get good koi the normal way.
    And this isn't really a "normal" purchase.
    On their website they had this SU FEMALE hidden in with all the males...and noone felt the urge to buy her.
    Well after talking to Mat, I felt she was worth smashing the Piggy bank.

    I think she will be a longterm project...and suspect her underlying sumi is a question mark as to whether it would ever come up....
    A big "if" but ya know I ain't got three grand laying around to buy a sure bet.

    The smaller "if" is "if the shiro thickens.

    Another "if" is "if she gets big.

    She has a nice body and I think the Sumi will come up. Just give her some time. I bet she's going to be gorgeous.

    WOW! I am new and just figured out that you are buying New Jersey bred Koi and not Koi from Japan!
    Here, on the West Coast, we do not see quality mainland U.S. bred Koi that much.

    Comments?

    well i think i sorta might have misled a few people earlier in this post...but don't worry..it was done to make for a more interesting post.

    I actually contacted Mat a week or so about the SU female, he was certain he hadn't put a female on the board at that size and price. He looked on the website and "remembered" he had "thrown a bone out there" as he had put it, and felt like giving someone a chance at a good fish if they were willing to take some risk. He liked everything about the fish but wass not certain the sumi would come up.
    i told him i thought it would, and he told me he thought it would but he could not be certain, So i said I'd buy it. the next day he had Russ go find her and take a pic for me so I could see it now.
    Much to their suprise....
    (In the pic where she looks like she is developing a belly it is because of a small surface wave distorting the true line....)
