      Judge This Yamabuki

      Here is a good photo. I bought it in the spring of 2010 and it was 24" (nisai).

      The only failures are those that stop trying! There is a very thin line between procrastination and delayed gratification. You won't be happy with what you want, if you aren't happy with what you have. It's not what you are looking at, but where you are looking from.

      Looking at this picture I do see some shaded orangish on the head area
      Can you give us some insight on this Gene

      I had delivered this koi to John Lentzis in NJ. John is an incredible koi keeper. He has won numerous awards with her. Here is a photo of one. She is now over 30".
