    Judging Sanke...

    Here you guys go. With most of the breeders in Japan using Matsunosuke Bloodline, 2 of these Sanke really show that trait of Matsunosuke body...Rank them 1st, 2nd and 3rd...

    Today I'd say A, C then B

    But for the future, I'd say C, A and then B

    Sanke judging.

    Three Sankes are just as IMPRESSIVE dude!

    Ranking: All Shiroji clean perfect!

    (B): Young Snake with great potential. Tategoi. Superb torpedo shape. Round attractive fins.

    (A): Oldest Sanke amongst with superb colouration maintained. Chubby cheeks!

    (C): Superb white shiro areas! Balanced well spread of sumi markings.

    Are we "judging" these photos, or what we see these koi will become? Or, is there a point where it is not realistic to expect somebody to not to include their future in the judgment?

    I think A and C are the ones I'd want, but do these photos show them in finished, show-ready condition? The Hi on B is very even.

    Nice test!!

    MikeM, we should judge these koi like it is a show. What the koi look now and at their present time if they were to go head to head at a show...But you are more than welcome to pick which one you would want to fill your pond up..

    A, C, and then B


    A has the body and Hi, while C looks to have (maybe) a little weak spot in the Hi near the shoulder. Otherwise, the order might be reversed.
    C has a wierd shaped head. At least in the picture..

    A for our pond please. Enjoyed this one.
    Best regards,

    Bob Winkler

    My opinions are my best interpretation of my experiences. They are not set in stone as I intend to always be a student of life. And Koi.
