Above are a few pictures of the ponds that we are just about finished culling for the spring 2018 Season.
We have over thirty varieties of Koi in brood stock both straight finned and Hirenaga (butterflies). We spawn 15 females each spring and we rotate varieties each breeding season. We do not breed every variety each year other than Hirenaga (butterflies) due to high demand.
Here are the varieties available this coming season:
Sanke Ochiba Shigure Beni Kikokuryu
Doitsu Kohaku Soragoi Ki Kikokuryu
Shiro Bekko Yamabuki Ogon Kikasui
Orenji Ogon Asagi Tancho Kohaku
Doitsu Showa Shusui Doitsu Hariwake
Hariwake Kikokuryu Tancho Showa
Chagoi Goshiki Doitsu Yamabuki
Hariwake Ogon Heisei Nisei Kikasui
Yamabuki Ogon Kohaku
Orenji Ogon Yamatonihiki
The pictures above are some of the Koi that we culled. They range in size and are also graded of (A, B &C) quality.
In two weeks we will have more pictures of the butterfly, straight fined and other varieties in Nisai and Sansai (2 and 3 year olds).
