    Update on Shiro . . .

    we received as Christmas present 11 Dec 2005. It was too late in the day to take pix before going into QT so here are a couple taken this morning before she joined the herd in the main pond.

    Fire away on this koi's show potential; am interested in honest opinions.

    17" Ogata female from Eastern Nishikigoi.







    Thanks, again, Nancy & Frank!

    I like her. Nice white, good body. The sumi looks high quality. I think she has prize winning potential.

    ...and a pretty face, too.

    The body pattern looks set in stone, and won't hold the koi back if you decide to show it.
    However the face pattern looks like it might REALLY be phenomenal in another two years..seems like a skinny menware is itching to connect the right side forehead Sumi to the nose sumi...this would circle the right eye. Some black might come up from the bottom and onto the low front left cheek.

    Thanks . . .

    Mike and Dinh; nice to know you think she has some potential.

    And Luke, wow, sure hope you're right about the sumi on her head. Wouldn't that be something?
