Champagne colored horses are born with bright pink skin which remains pink their entire life. What really distinguishes the champagne color from other colors is that champagne foals are born with bright blue eyes. Their eyes will usually change color as they age, but this takes a long time - whereas in other colors, the color of the eye changes more rapidly. The eye color will usually change from light blue to a hazel/green color.

Champagne colored foals are born with a darker coat than their future adult coat will be, and all Champagne horses have at least 1 Champagne parent.
