Champagne on Bay

Our "Logo Mare", Sweet Champagne, is an Amber champagne.

Amber is the result of one or two champagne genes
on a bay (black + agouti A) base coat.

This beautiful variety has a golden tan body color with brown points, though the legs are often lighter than the mane & tail.  Often the mane and/or tail will have "frosting", that is, lighter hairs along the edges.

An Amber foal's coat color is often darker than the adult; the skin is the usual brighter pink at birth, becoming a more subdued pink color as the horse ages and develops more and more freckles.

The eye color of an Amber starts out blue, and usually ends up amber to brown, as with all non-cream Champagnes.

This particular Amber Champagne mare is 7/8 Arab - 1/8 QH, with the Champagne coloring coming from her QH ancestors;  it is unknown in the Arabian breed.

Her nickname, Freckles, comes from her characteristically champagne freckled skin.
