Hi All,

I know I have read about this on the board, but of course, can not rememeber which thread or who mentioned it. I am interested in information on the "new" DNA reflective hair coat recently discovered. From what I can remember, the hair coats really shine and they have isolated a specific DNA code. Unfortunately that is all I can remember because at the time I did not have a personal interest.

Thanks for your help.

I did a bit more research and I think it is the Champagne gene I remember reading about. The stud we bred to is a metallic golden buckskin and I was curious if he may have this gene. thanks

If the stud is a true buckskin, then he would not have this gene or he would be a champagne. A Buckskin is a Bay with one copy of the creme gene. The shade of buckskin is relavent to the shade of bay the horse would have been without the creme gene. The very light buckskins would have been "sandy bay" and the very dark a "blood bay" or " mahogany bay". The Champagne gene is always dominate and always expressed when it is present. Do you have a photo of the sire? Buckskins have dark skin and champagne have pink. Champagne have freckled skin - especially where there is little hair such as the nose and around the eyes. I am a Buckskin lover and would appreciate a photo of the sire if you have one.
