Today was a long day. I spent 8 hours at Taniguchi Koi Farm. It was not as exciting as it seemed as, even though he scheduled an appointment with me, he had a lot of prep work for Koi entries in the International Junior Koi Show this weekend. The first 3 to 4 hours I was just there. Granted, if I wasn't there I would have been somewhere else doing nothing. I did a bit of looking around while waiting but looking, without know what you can pick, isn't all that exciting because it can be a big let down if what you like isn't available.

I needed to get something besides the Kohaku Tosai and I found this 4" Sanke.

I was NOT looking for Kujaku but I saw something interesting in this over crowded tank. When I saw the Hikari, color and the Matsuba scales on one of these then the hunt was on. It was so thick with Tosai it did not look like there were any others in the tank. Two hours later I got 14 more for a total of 15. There were a couple other interesting Tosai in there as well.

I drove back out to Matsue Koi farm today as I had a few customers that were interested in Gosanke at a higher level. When I arrived the Matsue team was busy taking pictures and video for the Narita Koi Farm event coming up on May 14th. Quite a few breeders offer up some of their Koi for the even and Matsue has offered 8 Kohaku.

Eventually the "boss" showed up and the fun began. If he looks like he was up drinking late last night...

I did live video chats with Matsue and some customers today and here are a few of the Koi that were purchased. I am waiting for permission to post the others. All female Jumbo Tosai.
