This baby Shiro Utsuri is on the road to a bright future.
In 2008, Omosako Koi Farm acquired a very high quality Shiro Utsuri named "Zebra" from Sakai Koi Farm.
Zebra Jr., a direct offspring of Zebra, hold the promise of large body conformation and the classic patterns and high quality sumi that we have come to expect from the Omosako operation.
This yearling Shiro Utsuri is on the road to a bright future. Such a unique checkerboard pattern in lacquer black is displayed throughout the whole body.
Now its white skin contains a little Sumi and every Sumi has not definitely finished yet. However the Sumi quality is guaranteed because it is glossy black in spite of its tender age. Shita Zumi (grayish part) under the white skin will emerge as deep Sumi. Its quality is so high that we can confidently predict its marvelous future look.
Therefore, we can absolutely expect that a handsome checkered pattern will finish as it grows bigger.
You will not to be likely to find a Shiro Utsuri with this quality anywhere eles or such a reasonable price. Place your best bid on this Tosai ( baby Koi)!
