Generation 1:

Iria's Silver Dew (TWHBEA #472673) was foaled in 1947. Her color is listed as "unknown." Her sire was Captain Eddie, listed as "roan" and her dam was Daisy Talieferro, listed as "unknown."

Generation 2:

Merry Golden Lady (TWHBEA #623403) was foaled in 1962 registered as "unknown.", but was actually a flaxen gold champagne. Her sire, John A's Chance, was a palomino, and her dam, Iria's Silver Dew is believed to have been a champagne. She produced four foals, 3 of which were champagne: Delight's Mtn. Gold (champagne mare), Sun's Smoky Topaz ("buckskin" mare), and Imatation Gold ("yellow" stallion, produced no foals).

Generation 3:

Delight's Mtn. Gold (TWHBEA #673307) was a gold champagne sabino mare foaled on 05/20/1967. Her markings are described as "both hind stockings and a broken strip." She was out of Merry Golden Lady and by Sun's Delight D, a chestnut. She produced four foals, only one of which was champagne: Hillbilly's Bud Lite.

Sun's Smokey Topaz (TWHBEA #775705) was foaled on 07/06/1977. She was originally named "Merry Golden Chance", but her name was changed when she was a yearling. She was registered as "buckskin," but was probably an amber or classic champagne. Her dam was Merry Golden Lady and she was sired by Midnight Mtn. Son, a bay stallion. She produced 4 foals, the following of which were yellow (possibly champagne): Mountains Gold Fever, Blonde in Black Lace, and Sun's Mtn. Miracle.

Imatation Gold (TWHBEA #792919) was foaled on 08/05/1979. out of Merry Golden Lady and by Midnight Mtn. Boy. Midnight Mtn. Boy's color is unlisted. He was by Midnight Sun (black) and out of Pearl Peacock (registed as "sorrel"). Imatation Gold appears to have been a sabino as well. His markings are described as "four stockings, on near hip, on near side, on near shoulder, throat latch, lower lip, bald, mixed tail." He produced no foals.
