Silver Champagne

The champagne gene combined with the silver [dapple] gene appears to have an additive effect. The black pigment lightened by the champagne gene is further effected by the silver dilution gene.

[basecolor + champagne + silver (dapple)]

At left is a silver classic champagne filly. In the absence of the champagne and silver genes, she would be black. However, the champagne gene lightens the black basecolor to chocolate, and then the silver gene further lightens the basecolor.
