My Gift to ME!

I had ZERO intention of buying ANYTHING, let alone a colt! But, here is my new baby boy "Wolf". He is an Amber champagne(a color I am totally unfamiliar with) that is 98% foundation bred. ;)
He is three weeks old.

Beautiful little boy!

And something about the color:
Champagne gene - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Amber champagne is produced by the action of champagne on a bay coat. The coat is gold with chocolate points. Just as there are varying shades of bay, the gold body coat may vary in shade as well.[7] The legs are often lighter than the mane and tail, and the colored points may be difficult to see. The mane and tail may also have "frosting" or light edges, a trait that also occurs in bay duns and some buckskins.[8] Amber champagne can be confused with buckskin or bay dun.

Oh, he's stunning! To be such a good looking colt packaged in such a unique color. Good choice!

If you don't mind me asking, how is he bred?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Great Pine (Hall of Fame), Continental Ace (P-50) and Blondy’s Dude (H-45 P-12).

Wow nice. We have an amber champagne stallion in the area I live and he is beautiful.

In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. Eleven-hundred pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

Both sire and dam are neg or they tested the foal? Just curious as there is no info about HERDA and the HERDA status of their horses on their website.
