Champane Question
My farrier just got a new Champane TWH, he has the mottled skin and green eyes, I think he is the shade of a deer. Don't champane have like a sub-category for the different shades? I have seen the terms Classic, Cream, Gold, are there others and what are the shade description for each?

Re: Champane Question

I am most certainly not qualified to answer your question. But....
I think registries do good to recognize gold (red based) classic (black based) and amber (bay based) but there at least have been a lot of terms attached to the rest of the hues. I *think* Ivory was champagne on palomino. But what was champagne on buckskin again? :? And so they dropped a lot of fancy labeling from the approved list. Correctly so, I fear. :oops:

Re: Champane Question

Yes one of the champagne registries (don't remember which) is trying to steer people away from using terms like ivory and instead use terms like gold cream (chestnut + champagne + cream). Will someone please explain to me why I constantly spell cream creme? :laugh1

You're hungry? :P

Ivory was used for ANY shade of champagne +cream. Hence the need to drop it as a usefull term :lol:

Re: Champane Question

Ivory cream lumped all colors of champagne creams into one group, now they are color descriptive, gold cream (champagne and cream on chestnut), amber cream (champagne and cream on bay), classic cream (champagne and cream on black) there is also sable (champagne on brown) gold dun, amber dun. and classic dun. I had a gold cream roan colt (and possibly another) I also have the only champagne silver dilute carrier in the AQHA.
