Breed the Koi..... and they will come!
It has been another bright, sunny and hot day at Yoshikigoi. We had so much to get done, so please bear with me if I have not yet responded to your messages, I will catch up with each of you as soon as I can.
Thank you to everyone who has already reserved or purchased Koi from this trip. We have sold over 35 Nisai and Sansai so far, and that is excluding the other enquiries that I have not had the chance to respond to yet!
The first job of our day today was to finish selecting through and grading the mid-priced Nisai. After a few hours of this we were compelled by Ernest to stop for fresh cakes and snacks (it would be rude not to!) and then back to the grind, but this time photographing and checking over the very best jumbo Tosai from last year
Pondy had his selecting boots on today and found some awesome Sanke and Showa, but most were just not for sale, (that said, we turned on our persuasive charm and managed to prize a few away from Jos and Merv anyway!). It has been really hot, sweaty work today, but someone's got to do it.... and looks like we might have to come back again next weekend too!
For your viewing pleasure, here are some of our customer's fish. An absolute steal at just GBP £249 each so our customer ended up buying three!
We also spotted a few gorgeous Matsuba, shared here for your consideration and contemplation.
This female Matsuba is particularly special, and most definitely not for sale - even with our very best persuasive charm offensive!
Here are a couple of other high-grade Koi. The stunning female Yamabuki has also been personally selected for a customer.
At the end of a long and busy day, we managed to take a walk through the parkland to Jack's Oak Tree, and say Hi to him there. Jack Ward, as many of you know, is the man who started this whole UK Yoshikigoi adventure and is always remembered fondly by us all.
I hope that you enjoy today's videos. Feel free to get in touch with me in the usual way if you have any questions or queries. As it's our last night on the Farm, we will be indulging in dinner and few drinks and then heading to bed... it's an early start back to the UK for us tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone who has followed us on this trip.... until next time!
