    Some serious development pics..opinions please!!

    Most of these shots are over a 2-3 season period. I am especially interested in what is going on with the motogoro of both my shiro utsuri. They were receding and tightening...then they began to expand again. Could color food cause this?? It did make the shiro go a little yellow. While the sumi increased on these two...it decreased on my sanke and doitsu gin shiro bekko. Sumi increased dramatically on my ginrin matsubawake and kumonryu. The kujaku just improved dramatically....the beni is much more red, and seems deeper. Could be the 4-6weeks of color food?? Opinions are appreciated.

    I'd dump the color food. None of them need it and the Utsuri's are all getting too much ill effect from it. The Kumonryu and Matsukawabake sumi is gonna take it's annual rollercoaster ride regardless, so I wouldn't attribute any sumi change in them to the colorants. Any changes in Sumi on the Sanke, Showa, ans Utsuri's I would write off to water, seasons, and genetics.

    Thanks for the advice. The color food was quite a mistake for the show. I wont do that again. My main concern was the motogoro on the shiro...seems to have reverted back to the look it had when it was younger. I thought it was odd.
