Blonde Connection - 2023

This annual publication highlights the actions of the Board of the Canadian Blonde d'Aquitaine Association to streamline the inner workings of the Association. Show results, the Sire Summary, Breeder listing, and any other information/articles that are Blonde related or could be of value to people interested in our breed. We hope our readers will enjoy this publication, and our breeders will see fit to promote their programs through the Blonde Connection.
