Pearl in Mini Horses

Has the Pearl gene been found in any mini horses to date or is it more strictly with the spanish breeds and the QH's currently? I'm just curious and love learning more and more about these different rare genes. Genetics fascinates me.

I have no idea. As far as testing has gone, it has been confirmed in Quarter Horses, Paints, Lipizzans, Andalusians, and Gypsies that I know of.

I'm also curious about the champagne gene in Minis.

Champagne exists in minis. Champagne is more common than pearl, but pearl is a more recent discovery and can appear to pop up randomly because it must be inherited with at least one copy of cream in order to show up.

I'm totally out of the loop what does the pearl gene look like? Any pictures?

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

Pearl does not need cream to show up - a second copy of pearl (homozygous pearl) will show the dilution. Pearl/cream and double pearl can look similar.

Pardon my lack of elaboration. My point was that it is not common and appears to randomly show up because one copy does need cream to show up. It would be very uncommon to have two unknown pearl parents produce a PrlPrl foal. Not impossible, obviously, just uncommon.
