Champagne plus Silver

Silver causes black manes & tails to lighten to a silvery flaxen or gray, and lightens the bodies of black-based horses a little.  When combined with black-based Champagne colors, it lightens the manes, tails and bodies somewhat more than the champagne gene alone.  It can be seen in these examples from ICHR's online stud book (registry).

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.
