Hello, I'm new here but I was just wondering why a mostly white overo looking colt, with some minimum pinto markings was born with bright blue eyes and now over a month later these eyes are now green?
The sire of the colt was a True Classic Champagne, and the colt does have pink skin too.
Could this maybe mean he might be Champagne, or is this typical eye color of overos?
Any insight is appreciated.
Thanks Mary

Is the green eye color typical of minimum expression overos, or is this an unusual occurance?
I really dont want to spend the $ on a test unless it is not typical.
Thanks, Mary

Mary, I have a champagne colt and his eyes are green. I think its safe to say that you have one too! Overos typically have blue or brown eyes, can you post some pics of him? I love to see other peoples champagnes!

Wow This is a cool forum Saleste, and Cathy .. I was told by someone, when I first suspected that this colt was champagne after he was born,-that to watch the skin color around his eye area and it would tell the story in a few days..
Well he did get some black eye liner around the very rims of his eyes, but that was it.. They said no,-because of that, but now I am wondering if they are right.
You see I own the Stud that bred this mare, and he is a registered Classic Champagne. (miniature that is) Anyway this mare and colt belongs to a friend on the other side of town and I do farrier service for her, so I'll be heading back soon and bring my camera too.
Now I am a little hopeful because this colt is as cute as can be!
I hope I can figure out how to post pictures of this boy..

It's kinda hard to tell, with him having eyeliner and all. My colt is Gold Cream, so the difference between his eyes and the skin around is is a big contrast. His eyes turned green slowly, starting with outside ring. The outside was green, with the inside blue until he was about 9 months old, but I'm not sure if this is the norm or not. They do look like the same color that he has now though.

He has freckles, but I think since your colt has black eyeliner, that might change things a bit! Go to www.yellowhouseranch.com. There are some really good pics of champagnes (of all ages!). Personally, I still think theres a good chance that he's champagne:-)

Thanks Saleste, I do too. what a pretty boy you have there!
Yeah,- Ive been showing these photos to some other Champagne owners, and come to find out some Champanges do start out with eye liner, like this boy has- although not many, and it can fade with age.Heres another better close up of his eye..
