    Hi Blake,

    I'm going to say Omosako on the left and Yamamatsu on the right.

    The reason?
    Gary Abrams once told me that a trait in Omosako Kohakus is the shape of the body from the head down to the nose. The one on the right doesn't appear to have that, whereas the one on the left looks like it might.

    Your parents exhibited an Omosako Kohaku at the South East show that definately has this trait.

    Well?

    The Kohak on the right is more Yamamatsu looking. The body looks more Matsunosuke.

    Yamamatsu on the right

    Has the same traits as his brother's famous "Battleship" Kohaku.

    Thanks KFG. I thought for a while that only my wife and I were just biased. I just hope he stays a tategoi for a long long time.

    Did my research and found that the Omosako Kohak is a mature champion at the BKKS, really nice....so that leaves the other Kohak as a Yamamatsu/Matsunosuke...
