New Kinda Old Guy

Postby Cynnikal » June 25th, 2017, 12:11 pm

Thanks for letting me join the forum Russ! My real name is Sonny and I live in Central Georgia. I have had the koi bug done I was stationed in Japan in the late 80s. I finally got a chance to get involved in keeping koi from my neighbor who were members of the local koi club. Several member's ponds inspired me to build one. My first start was in 2007 when I first joined Koiphen. I quickly realized that my pond goals well exceeded my budget and the location I wanted to put the pond was a bad idea. Plus, I was still in the Air Force and I wouldn't have been able to take care of the pond. Fast forward to last year when we hosted a foreign exchange student from Germany. Her parents came over to spend a few weeks with us before they took their daughter home. I told her dad I was planning to put a koi pond in and showed him my plans. The next day when I was at work he surprised me when I got home by starting the digging process.

Yes, that is brick hard Georgia Red Clay! Well, a year later I finally have a hole in the ground with koi. Now I finally get to kick back and enjoy our pond. Here are a few more pictures.
