The "champagne version" of buckskin is called amber champagne, and the palomino version is called gold champagne. Champagne also shows up in black horses (creating the color 'classic champagne') whereas cream does not show up on a black coat.

Verona- so this means that an amber champagne has black points like a buckskin then? I didn't know that! I didn't know there as a champ. Version of buckskin- pretty cool. :)

Yes, what Verone1016 said.
I'm still learning myself, but it seems that buckskin does not make green or light amber eyes like the one pictured.
(The other eye is typical amber color mixed with blue.)
While in a picture his points look black, they are more of a dark chocolate to light chocolate and he has a lot of red in his mane and tail.
No speckles on his skin though, so he is a bit of a quirky quandry.

After the holidays I will probably have him tested because I'm so curious myself.

So his points are true black, not just faded? That is cool!
For my mare they get a bit faded to reddish, and she has tons of reddish in her mane and tail... I had just assumed it was all due to sun fade.
You would be testing for the amber/champagne gene, I assume? By skin speckles, I assume you mean dapples? I think that is just dependent on specific horses? Tho everyone seems to say too that the healthier the horse, the more you get, but that being in sun 24/7, the dapples might fade. But I don't have a clue! :)

Skin freckles mean skin freckles, pink skin dotted with spots, everywhere you can find bare skin. If you look at my boy you'd be able to see the freckles.

Palominos have skin mottling on thier body without being champagne though. But usually thier face will have all grey skin unless there is a white marking. I'm not sure about buckskins I wouldn't be surprised if they did as well. I kinda wanna check out jackpots skin now lol.

Here is a good example of what I mean by skin freckles and on an amber champagne. To my knowledge all champagnes have the freckles on face/genitals, even those with dark points.

LOL....no his points are not true black, at least to the naked eye they don't look to be.
They appear very faded and/or chocolate in color.
He does get dapples, lots of them and he even has a few white spots, but as mentioned... the skin freckles associated with Champagne... is something he does not have.
Most people believe dapples are a sign of good health and some colors seem to show the dapple more than others.
