      The Turtle sanke and kohaku

      The day after Russ got the koi I rushed out to see him and get something to go in the mud. As soon as I saw this sanke it caught my eye. I have attended both of the Sakai seminars that Russ has provided and as soon as I saw this koi I wanted it. In Mr. Sakai's lectures he always talks about skin quality and luster and how the beni, shiro and sumi should look like wet paint. When I looked at the 100-150 new arivals I instantly noticed the shimmer and vibrant glossy color that Mr. Sakai had always spoke of. This sanke has great skin as well as the conformation to grow large. I just hope that the beni on her face pulls back as she gets bigger. At least I was hoping it was a "her" and quite relived when Russell confirmed it was. Nothing worse than seeing a koi you love to find out it is a male.
      The kohaku is my Mothers. This kohaku's shiro is a blinding white on top of that it has great conformation, pattern and when it comes from Toshio Sakai you can trust it will just keep getting better

      Love that kohaku. Your sanke might want to think about developing a bit more sumi.

      The Kohaku was one of the missing.

      That is such a pity ,cus I think that kohaku with that pattern would have been spectacular , but the heron prolly thought so too .
