Holland Koi Show 2011

Recommended Posts

We were at the Koi Show yesterday and I took some pics for you guys. These Koi were HUGE! Most were bigger than my dog! (longer than 1meter)

Enjoy!

Then we stopped at my friend's store to see his Kois. Some in the show are his, but he leaves his most precious ones in the store so not to stress them.

My phone only showed the first half of the first picture when loading. So I said, oh...those aren't so big...then I scrolled down :o. They are big and beautiful. I liked the no hands sign. They look big enough to take a bite out of someone :rofl

Not to mention that they can live to 100+ years.

Can you imagine - setting up a trust to take care of them after you've passed, or make it a condition of inheritance? :rofl :rofl :rofl

Lovely! The black and white one is my favorite. I loved the pumpkin house...though it seems a bit early. Once in July we were out walking the dog and walked past a house filled with snow in the lawn...real snow in California! And it was filled with Christmas lights. I think they were having a Christmas in July party and shipped out real snow...crazy!

You have magnificent pictures. Ours are unfortunately not that good.

The only houses that I know that go overboard with the pumpkins are the ones that sell them. It pays to advertise ;)

Hey Miki!

Yea I got lucky with the pictures because I was basically snapping blindly in the middle of the crowd of 'pros' :rofl I guess my camera surprised me.

I wonder where that house got all those pumpkins tho!

Btw Miki did you visit the House Of Kata tent? I am totally fascinated by their stuff :rofl :rofl :rofl

I would absolutely NOT doubt that. :rofl

You could probably also feed them dog food. Just get a bag of Kibbles 'n Bits. Probably a lot cheaper than the koi food LMAO

And then the koi barked.
