Please click the thumbnail-sized pictures to see full size.  Champ's first year foal crop hit the ground in 2009. (See below)  "Very gentle, easy breeder.
Color tested; cannot throw any red-based colors.  What a rare find Champ is: chances of any of his foals' colors are 25% champagne, 25% champagne creams, 25 % cream, and 25 % non-dilute. This makes Champ a 75% likely color producer. Because he is also homozygous for the black gene, he will never sire a red based foal; so, when bred to aa mares, all foals will be black, smoky black, classic or classic cream (unless of course mares are gray or cream dilutes). Champ is also genetically a frame overo so 50% of Champ's foals should also carry the overo pattern!  He is now 14.3 H tall."

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.
