      Kitfoxdrvr's Lucky Number 13 Tosai

      Got a blue ribbon at the Carolina Classic Young Koi Show. I feel like I cheated as I just bought it and went and picked it up, but since this is my first ribbon, I will take it! The two judges disagreed; one picked mine and one picked Janae's-Janae will have to explain how mine won out!!! Here is the picture that Brady took:



      I liked the symmetry of the head pattern. I looked closely at the development pics that Brady posted in the tosai thread, and I hate to say, I am very lost on what will happen to the pattern on this koi as it grows. I do not know whether more white will enter the dorsal pattern or will it fill in to a solid beni "blotch". Time will tell!

      I have some pics of him bowled up before I put him in QT; I will post them tomorrow.

      Steve, your Blue ribbon is in the mail. Had to wait until today because no mail service yesterday. Is this your first ribbon? I wish you could have stayed for the awards banquet. It was very differant then the usual banquets, much more casual & affordable.

      Thanks, Janae! I appreciate you doing that for me! I now owe you postage, so call a favor out at your convenience! Yes this was my first. Hopefully the next will be for a fish that has spent at least a couple of days in my pond! I feel like I cheated getting a ribbon for a fish I had never seen until that day!

      I promise the kitfoxdrvr family will be better represented next show; this weekend by necessity became a combined fish/horse weekend, with horses taking the upper hand this time. I intend to bring fish next time and participate in more of the events. I hope to have a size three or four nisai next year (yours and mine can have a reunion)! I also have a couple of promising sanke and kohaku, as well as some butterfly, that I would like to get a judge's opinion of!

      And get to meet some people, yourself included!!!

      She is a nice kohaku. I want to see her next year at the show....

      Are you going to frame her picture with the ribbon? I wish I would have put pictures with my ribbons, over the years I forget who won what ribbon at what show.
