Red (chestnut/sorrel) + 1 Cream + Champagne = Gold Cream

If a Gold horse has one cream gene from either parent, it's a Gold cream. Left, Chenoa, when she was owned by Tara Novotny. Top right, Brooke's Wind Dancer TWH  stud owned by Renee Woodward.  Bottom right, Sundance Lasan, GOLD CREAM AQHA stud, owned by Chuck Harrell of Texas.


Bay + 1 Cream + Champagne = Amber Cream

Black + 1 Cream + Champagne = Classic Cream

Any Color + 2 Cream genes + Champagne = Champagne Double Cream.

This horse will look practically white, with very pale pink skin and hardly any freckles.  It must have a Cream Champagne parent and a Cream parent.  It will always throw one cream gene and should produce Cream Champagnes as well.  These two have tested CrCr, and have each produced at least one cream champagne foal.

At top left, Legacy's Frontier Gold Tennessee Walking Horse colt, a Gold Double Cream (Cremello Champagne) owned by Edna Edwards of Utah.

At top right, Wind D.’s Thunder, another Tennessee Walking Horse stallion. He is owned by Leroy Summers, and was bred by Renee Woodward, both of whom are from Kentucky.

More recently an Amber double-cream colt has been brought to our attention.  He is a Missouri Fox Trotter named 1man's Apollo, owned by April Brede in Draper, Utah. The colt was born with unexpectedly dark ear and tail hair, center and bottom left.  A huge, slightly older picture of him is at  bottom right.  I've left it huge so that viewers can see the eye, sheath, etc. skin in as much detail as possible. We hope to add more pictures when he matures. His color test results are on file with the ICHR.

Emailing ICHR:  Horse color questions will not be answered without the horse's breed and registered name, if any.  Due to the extensive research conducted by the ICHR, we are usually able to determine if a horse has champagne in its pedigree by recognizing the names of ancestors we have determined were champagne,
listed in the right column of each
entry in our
stud book.
ASK about "grade" horses,  please.
