    why I live where I do

    Was working with the koi today and got a visit from a couple of regulars. The little one doesn't seem to have any fear. I just have to keep them away from the grapes.

      The koi is beautiful and so are the deer.

      Do you put out salt blocks and feed for them? We have them here so I'm planning on putting out blocks pretty soon.

        No salt blocks... nada, nothing.

        I live between two state forests so there are lots of critters that show up around here. 90% of the time I see more animals then people.

          today 20 March

          I thought I would post a pic of my little girl. 45.7cm so just a little girl. I don't take good pictures yet. I found a battery exploded in my nikon flash so that bummed me out. It took longer to get the net down then it took to catch her. It took about 30 second to net her, so either I am getting better or she is pretty calm.

          She hasn't grown much on length, but the improvement on girth is pretty nice. Her color is good and overall I am pretty happy with her.

          I am just starting to feed wheat germ once a day. I will admit issues around here have kept me from giving my girls the attention they deserve, but that will change.

            Mike, this is the one that will beat Tom's koi, good job so far; I can't wait until Shigeru picks the winner.

              mr Vo,

              yes, she will beat Tom's sanke, but will she beat yours?

              i know you guys have a head start on me, being 250 miles further south.

              your girls must be over 20"+ by now.

                I am looking forward to Shigeru's visit as well. If nothing else then a chance to see old friends again. Of course beating Tom is always fun.
