    That video shows how many have a body form that is not as weighted to the shoulder or abdomen as is often seen.

    BTW, Mat has posted a lot of photos showing how the tosai Shiros changed after a summer in the mud. Check out his blog at qualitykoi.com. It is really interesting. His final comments are telling:


    "Some of the yellow heads turned white, some stayed yellow. Some white heads stayed white, some turned yellow. Some sumi came up. Some sumi went down. Some sumi stayed the same.

    At harvest – some females had yellow heads in spring, but now have white heads. Some yellow head males had white heads in spring.

    Final thoughts : Tosai Shiro Utsuri..are a gamble!"

    All of which leads me to think that in selecting tosai Shiro Utsuri the focus has to be on body form (always a challenge with heavily fed tosai) and sumi quality (really tough with tosai for all but a few with very good eyes) and skin quality (and hardly any hobbyist has confidence in their own judgment of skin quality of tosai).
