Sekiguchi Competition Report


Saturday 11th October saw the proud owners of the Sekiguchi Koi purchased earlier this year return them for judging.

When selected the koi ranged from 18cm to 24cm, so the growth rate that had been achieved was impressive with the returned koi ranging from 32cm to over 45cm. Judging was hard, but 4 koi made the final round and then it was down to just two.

The two koi being owned by Jim Litchifeild, and Mike Keyte. After much deliberation and discussion it was decided that for many reasons that a joint prize would be fairer than having to pick one koi, so both of the owners of the koi in question were consulted, and they both agreed that the prize of a Single Sekiguchi Nisai although a dream prize, could be replaced with a selected Sekiguchi Nisai or lower priced Nisai, with each getting there own koi.

So with this decided the prize for the 2014 Julian read Show and Grow was awarded jointly to Jim Litchfield, and Mike Keyte. A full report on the day will be added soon.

Congratulations to Andy Baker at he 2014 Winter Show

And our many other customer who won.

Andy Baker won the following three awards with a Sakai Fish Farm Sanke purchased from us in 2012:
1st in size 6 Sanke, 2nd in all varieties , Best in Variety (So best Sanke at Show)
Andy was keen to point out the folloiwing " At only 67cm I nearly didn't take her as you would think she would be up against it, when being compared with say 73/74cm Sanke's etc and size 6 all varieties was a pretty hotly contested size, ( wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't 15 / 20 size 6 fish at the show) but her quality really shone through. I know you love to sell the more expensive fish, but I'm sure it wouldn't do business any harm to promote the fact that fish under a grand can play with the big boys. Hopefully she will continue to grow and improve, as I will be showing at all the major shows this year including the Nation, so hopefully we can nick a major prize with her, later on in the year :-)"
So a massive well done to Andy from all at Koi Water Barn.
