Not at the same time, no, but when her color test came back showing her as champagne & knowing the blue eyes are not typical to champagne, I did some pedigree research on her, looking for frame parents and found none, but figured better safe than sorry & had her tested for LWO, which she is negative. Lacey's test results where EE Aa nCH. I had her tested because tehy kept telling me she was a buckskin, and I couldn't find where the cream was coming- I couldn't find it because it wasn't there!

HOwever, Amber champagnes can have brown eyes and not have the typical hazel or green.

I have to say, I love that you tested her to be safe. You rock

Here is an awkward eye picture:
