From AIS Bulletin #309 April 1998 Introducing BALTIC BLUE (Niswonger '98) Sdlg. SDB 4-97: 22-91: ((27-87: (Oriental Blush x Unknown) x Ballet Slippers)) X 72-91: (Star Dancer x Unknown). SDB, 14" (36 cm), M. This is a vigorous light blue with olive green hafts and a very bright dark blue beard. It was the tallest and most vigorous in the cross. I know there are several good blues in this class but I think you will agree that it is different than any blues you have seen. EC St. Louis early show '97. $15.00. Cape Iris.
