    ZNA Potomac trip to Quality Koi

    We had a great time yesterday visiting Mat, Jen and Joe up at the farm. We saw and talked a lot about shiro utsuris. I posted some pics at the clubs Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/znapotomac

    I'm so glad you asked . We had a large vat with about 50 or so tosai to look at. We then separated them into groupings to study. We put the top 5 shiros with the sumi up together, with the sumi down, with the yellow heads, with paper white skin, with creamy skin, good pattern, bad pattern etc etc. We talked about each groupings and took photos. They were all sent out to mud when we were done with. Come harvest we will get to look at the groupings again and see how they changed ie will the yellow heads go away. Now to what we are probably really asking...they look great! The sumi was super thick on the shiros where the sumi was up. The future looks bright for Quality Koi shiros and yes I bought a couple that are now in the mud.

    It sounds like a lot of fun. I was fascinated by the Shiros last Fall when they were quite small, straight in from the rearing ponds. So many little differences! You'll really have fun seeing them after a summer in the mud.
