Mako Showa Progress Pictures
In an effort to better understand our Mako bloodline Showa, we would like to introduce this photo set of one of our best Showas produced here at Momotao Koi Farm. This koi was produced by pairing a Mako-line Kohaku female with our best Momotaro produced male Showa. This parent female Kohaku was selected for her outstanding body shape in hope that her offspring would resemble that bodytype but with Showa coloration.

As a tosai this koi had one of the best red patterns as well as a standout, strong type of body. After her initial winter indoors she was released into a mudpond for raising for the summer. After harvesting and keeping in concrete for a month or 2. the first picture of her was taken as a 63cm two-year old. At this point her body was one of the best compared to her siblings and perhaps even the best of all the fish produced at the farm that year. Her red and white were also outstanding but showed the potential to develop further. Her sumi was very sparse but showed hints of its future positioning. She was entered into our winter auction that year as a nisai.

The next year, 2010, this koi was kept in the 1500ton concrete pond all summer. She was a great eater growing to 77cms by the fall/winter of her third year. By this time her sumi had shown itself to be of good quality in addition to her great white and red coloration. The sumi pattern on the head developed very much as did the sumi between the second and third beni markings at her tail end. By this time we knew this fish had the pattern potential for serious koi shows throughout the world.

In the spring and summer of 2011, this showa was kept indoors in a 70 ton pond in our new house. To our delight, she grew to 84cm by November as her sumi pattern came together as hope for. The pictures of this fish do not show the height of the body top to bottom nor can we see just how contrating the colors are. In November of 2011 she went to the ZNA All Japan Koi Show
and did very well winning Best in size 85cm as well as Best in Variety Showa. This koi has the potential to be champion in Japanese koi shows in the future.The development of her sumi pattern on the head and around the dorsal fin area should be exciting to watch in the coming years. This is the
kind of Showa we are trying to produce with the Mako Bloodline Showa - a Showa with a great body and greatly contrasting. long-lasting colors.

2011 Breeding and Culling Underway
For the last few weeks here at Momotaro Koi, we have been busy doing our first round of harvesting and culling of this yearfs tosai as well as breeding our next parent koi. So far, we have made an equal amount of Kohaku, Sanke, and Showa and hope to keep this balanced production going forward this season. Please see the pictures below for a better idea of our daily activities:

Working Towards a Better Showa: Mako Showa [Parent tree]
Throughout the koi world there are many generalizations regarding the main koi varieties. Many people would say that good specimens of Kohaku have the best bodies and the ability for a deeper but lasting red color(beni). Many would agree that Sanke can grow the longest and have the most elastic red. The generalization about Showa is that despite its striking colors, Showa often times lack the length and uniformity of its body to compete with the Sanke and Kohaku for the highest awards at the highest level. These generalizations have led us at Momotaro Koi Farm to strive to produce a new type of Showa, one with the growth ability and body lines of Sanke and Kohaku as well as an improved, even more dynamic black color(sumi).

Since 2004, Momotaro Koi Farm has experimented with mixing the Kohaku and Sanke body traits into the Showa variety. What is the best way to do this? By starting with the best body base possible, we crossed a female Mako-bloodline Kohaku to one of our best male Showa. Mako was our main Sanke parent koi from a Matsunosuke Magoi Sanke parentage, so her daughter Kohaku has the genetics for growth and girth.

From this initial spawning, the eggs and fry were few. After a summer of growing and intensive culling, only a few Showa from his crop remained. By the early summer of 2006 the best male Showa was used to spawn a Takeda-bred female Showa. At that time this male gMako-Showah showed the body characteristics we were hoping for, but the sumi was still very uninspiring. Now, in 2008 his sumi has remained unchanged but he has steadily grown in our male-greenhouse to 88cm.

The 2006 spawn of this lone Mako-Showa male to the Takeda Female was step in the right direction. Although there were not many fry produced, there were enough to get an idea of the kind of koi this new type of Showa could produce. By the time we got to the last cull of that Autumn many of these were actually sold because we were unimpressed with the sumi. Only after a winter in the mudponds and another Spring-time cull did we see the potential of these koi. The remainder spent summer of 2007 in a mudpond and were not harvested and looked at closely until the late Autumn.

By early 2008 the males and females were separated and in the spring and summer of 2008 many of these Mako-Showa males were used as parent koi. We have been impressed with the body lines and growth of these Showa as well as the bolder sumi. We hoped that with the right matches we could bring those characteristics out in our Showa tosai of 2008/09. While it may be too early to tell how great these 2008 Mako Showas will be, we are sure that we are going in the right direction. Our goal to produce Showas that have both the coloration and body to compete at the highest level continues to motivate us. Mako Showa is just beginning.

Momotaro Koi Farm 3rd Annual Koi Show Event
On November 16th, we will be holding our 3rd Annual Momotaro Koi Farm Koi Show. This event is a special thank you to our dealers and customers.
