Champagne

Champagne

Characteristic and trait of inheritance

Similar to the gene for the colour cream, the gene for champagne causes a lightening of the basic colour. The champagne gene is dominant and homozygous and heterozygous genotypes are almost indistinguishable phenotypically.
The basic colours are modified as follows: Chestnut is diluted to Gold-Champagne, bay is diluted to Amber-Champagne and black is diluted to Classic-Champagne.
Champagne coloured horses are born with unpigmented skin that develops black spots during the first days of life. In most cases the eyes are blue but darken as the horse gets older.

Breed

All breed

Test duration

3-5 days after arrival of the sample in the lab

Material

The DNA test is performed out of EDTA blood or or 20-30 hair roots from mane or tail. Test kits can be ordered free of charge. (order-form). If hair is sent in, possibly the genetic material is not sufficient to run the test. In this case it would be best to send in an EDTA blood sample.

Testing procedure

3-5 days after arrival of the sample in the lab
