    Remembering the culls

    Ever relfect on pass Nishikigoi you have culled or even yoru domestic holloween koi that was so friendly? About this time every year I reflect on koi I have culled out. pretty much each and everyone. I look back and wonder how they are doing. Some I know go into private mudponds (Lucky them )

    I guess its a bit of romance for me that I just want to know how they are doing as they have taught me so much about their ancestors who bred them and moslty how to cull.

    Wondering if you all do the same thing???? or am I just being to umm what did someone call me (Too sensitive! LOL)

    How about the koi that died from whatever, the culled fish I had are in good places now, but it's the fish that died that bothers me....Damn, I wish I still had my Beni-Kikokuryu....

    It was hard for me to cull the fish we did to make room for some new ones earlier this spring. I am always fearful of bad karma - those fish didn't die on me and here I am giving them away! but I like to imagine that they are now the stars of the show in someone's pond somewhere.

    Fish that were lost due to my lack of knowledge bother me. I had a Goshiki, one of the only fish I'd ever named (Bandit - for the black Lone Ranger mask he had over his face when we purchased him) that died after a freak hailstorm in April. I had really enjoyed watching his pattern change and develop ( and improve) and was saddened by never seeing him reach his potential. I never like to feel responsible for the death of such beautiful creatures.

    Unhappy

    I wish i still had my AWSOME asagi i only just picked her up from the dealer put her in the pond, and walked away only for 5 mins and the males had pushed her out as she was full of eggs. She would have won the 2005 natioanl hands down.
