    Momotaro February 17 Auction

    The auctions do not stop. Not long ago, one or two dealer auctions was all a breeder would have. The times change.

    The next Momotaro auction is February 17. I'm sure the timing was decided in relation to the Shinkokai All-Japan show. Photos and videos will be posted in a few weeks.

    Here are the eye candy: Momotaro koi
    If you are bidding on the showa, you will likely need a bigger checkbook. :-)

    Cheers,

    Great choice, Coach! I think #77 should be a "Special" koi. Anybody care to speculate why it isn't? I also like #76.

    No. 76


    No. 77


    Regards,

    Showa #93 for me. ....So much to anticipate. It's the body structure I most like.

    I could do with a sanke. Number 52 would fit the bill. Nice kohaku pattern, big punch of kata zumi, clear odome, just enough tejima to balance.

    The Momotaro website now says tosai from Lion Queen will be up for auction. Anyone surprised??

    ...No tosai photos posted at this time. Probably doing a lot of sorting to figure out which to auction.

    Sure, it just makes sense. I mean why would they not promote these koi and get top dollar. Nothing wrong with getting full (perceived) value on their product. We see it everywhere, in all aspects of marketing. And honestly, good for them. While sometimes we think of Japenese breeders as being wealthy business owners, in reality they are crop farmers with long days of laborous work and the risks of nature is always present. Same goes for American breeders, and for that matter any breeder. An honest living doing something you love and living modestly- sure. Getting wealthy? Ha ha!

    So, no shame in uping the price of a product after a big win, imo...
