      EileenB's 2 Asagi growouts (BENNETTE4796)

      Just picked these up directly from QualityKoi, along with an Answer 250 at a fantastic price. People there were very nice, and I can't wait to stop by again!

      PS: I forgot to add the tape measure to the bucket for the first fish, so I don't have an accurate measurement on him. Not sure if this disqualifies him. Oops...

      I also would like to mention that they were nice enough to give me a quick tour, and I got a peek at their breeder fish. I saw the biggest koi I have ever seen in my life (one of their female Ochibas). Beautiful, massive fish! Very impressive, and very nice folks.

      There's no need to measure them when you get them for purposes of the contests. IN the size competition we just go by greatest length at the deadlines.

      Eileen, I found your 2nd koi in the group photo, it's to the left of center looking down towards the corner (looking between 7-8 on the clock). I'm still looking for your 1st one. I have a few canidates but can't make a choice yet.

      Wow, you do have good eyes! I think that you nailed it, now that I've found my reading glasses...

      I think your first koi is in the bottom right corner at about 4 o'clock looking towards 2 o'clock. Get your reading glasses & see if that's it. If not I'll keep looking. It's good exercise for my brain.

      I also wanted to tell you, I think you will enjoy watching these guys develope. The 1st koi doesn't have much red right now, which is what you want to see. It will come in as the koi grows. The 2nd one has bright red hi on the head already & will probably develope alot more hi on the body as it grows. I will definetly be watching for pictures as they grow. I like these choices.
