Gold champagne dun with tiger and double Lp.

Champagne causes the freckling and on a chestnut turns it golden colored. Tiger eye is the eyes. The snowflaking and blanket are both caused by the Lp. And the dun, has lightened her body color a bit more, creating a slightly dusty effect. She'll likely end up looking a lot like her sire as she ages.

... I wasn't sure about the flaxen. I have a horse that shares this same color, minus the dun and I didn't think that one had flaxen. So, if Raikit says flaxen, then there's also likely flaxen. :D ... and likely flaxen on mine too... Hah! :lol:

Definitely has flaxen, to bad it doesn't show on the legs as that would be pretty stunning

Yeah, flaxen can be tricky on the gold champagnes. Here's a post I made about it back when I was still a newbie.

On a different topic: it's hilarious to go back through my old posts and see how much I didn't know that I now take for granted as common knowledge. :lol:

Ai-eeh-Yeah!
It's that moment that I feel really stupid and the comment crosses my mind... 'Yeah, I really did say, do that. What an idiot I was.' :lol:
