    Ogata Showa

    Hi all,

    Just wanna share with you one of my Showas that I got when it was 6". It's now around 11" and its sumi starts coming up. What do you think of it? Hope it'll turn out nicely.





    Cheers,
    Victor

    Welcome to the board Victor. You have a very nice clean Ogata Showa, shiroji, beni are soft to the eye and the comformation looks good.

    Where about's are you from?

    Nice frame .

    The right side , third step , the Sashi looks uneven when you compare it to the other steps of the pattern .

    I believe I see a dot of Sumi on the nose (Hopefully that will connect with the back of the Head) . It will be fun to watch all the changes with this koi in the next couple of years .

    Keep us posted !

    Tony - Thank you for your warm welcome and comments. I live in Northern California.

    Headache6 - Thanks. Since it's still a very young koi, I hope I can keep it well so its sashi will improve as it grows. I can't wait to see how it'll develop too. Will keep you posted in a few months.

    MikeM - Thanks for your comment.

    KK - I'm glad that you like it. Let's see how it grows. It's about 13-15 months.

    Cheers,
    Victor

    Welcome on board Victor... Glad to see another NoCal on board.

    Where did you get that beautiful Ogata showa? Here in NorCal, there only few dealers import Ogata koi and I can't believe Tony misses out that one on arrival;-))

    One of my best koi is Ogata showa as well...

    Thank you, Dinh. I got it from ChampionKoi as a pack - 3 for $100. I hope it'll turn out nicely. I'd be glad if it turns out as nice as half of your Koi.

    Cheers,
    Victor
