      Grow Out Winner

      I got an e-mail from Miwa this morning with her father's choice for the winner.

      Mr. Sakai picked the top three of the growout and also has comments for some of the other Koi.

      The best overall winner is Gail Lord. This is what Mr. Sakai wrote; "Gail... Overall, good sumi is coming outon her body..and he beni is also good...the 1st".
      His second place pick is..."26...Her sumi is coming out very much. By it, it makes the balance of her pattern good."
      His third place pick is..."34...This is a good female fish. As she grows, she will charm people by her quality."

      I am attaching pictures of the top three picks by Mr. Sakai and a picture of Mr, Sakai pointing at the winner.

      Here are some more comments from Mr. Sakai on some of the other Koi.

      50...She has good white skin. And on it, sge will have good quality sumi. So it takes a little more time, but she will be very balanced fish.

      18...Now her sumi is sinking. So, please do not worry about it. Sumi will come back.

      27...it looks like she did not change. But I can see sumi will come up.

      19...She will be nicer.

      Gr8Koi...She has nice skin,so she will be more beautiful

      RKM...she has nice Moto-zumi. She is the type of tategoi.

      Here are some comments from Toshi, Miwa and the rest of the staff from INC.

      Toshi's choice, Gail...1st. 50,58 his favorites.

      Igarashi's choice, Gail...1st.

      Sasaki's choice, 26...1st.

      Sakakibara's choice, 19...1st.

      Miwa's choice, Gail...1st for this contest because of big change!
      RKM...my favorite.


      Miwa says that all of these votes were done before her father voted as he was out of town when I sent the pictures.

      Congratulations to everyone.

      It doesn't have a number because some people opted to have me pick their Koi. Here is a before picture.

      Smile

      I am SO surprised! When I opened the thread and saw the winner I could not believe my eyes. I'm in a tizzy.

      Thank you so much to Mr Sakai and his family and crew, and to Russell and Kari Peters for all their work on this, and to the amazing place that is Koiphen!

      Congratulations,

      In addition to Sakai-san' nice comment, Hi pattern of your showa is called "Seware" which is valuable and highly appreciated among people who know well about Nishikigoi in Japan. Do breeders know about it? Yes, of course....

      Congrats to the winners. I'll have to console my fish and let him know that he needs to step up if he wants to compete with the rest, LOL
