In 2007 it was my great fortune to have stood Champagne Look at
my ranch for the breeding season. Champagne Look will go
down in history as one of the true greats of the Champagne
colored horses of any breed.
It was the dedication and tenacity of his owner, Bea Kincade,
who for nine years working with Dr. Ann Bowling (now deceased)
of UC DAVIS, convinced color geneticists that his color was that
of none other. Hence the color CHAMPAGNE was identified
from this remarkable horse, Champagne Look! With years of
research since then, color genetics now have identified a true
DNA marker for the color of Champagne.
Aside from his metallic dazzling color, Look is absolutely
perfection in his conformation, disposition and gliding, natural
gait. He moves like the Tennessee Walking horses were bred
to move -- classic old-time fluid running walk with that
marvelous head shake all the way.
Look produced five foals while he was standing in Oregon and he
stamped each of his get with his incredible genes.
Beautiful placement of the necks, lovely heads, huge feet, and
as sweet and willing as any foals I have ever had the pleasure
to be with. Oh .. did I forget to mention their natural
gait? Gaitin' little fools everyone of them from the time
they stood up and got their feet moving.
Of his foals born on my ranch, all were sold as soon as they
were on the ground. I kept a Classic Champagne stud colt
for my future herd sire and a beautiful black sabino filly for
my future riding horse and broodmare.
It was my supreme honor to have stood Look at my ranch. He
was a joy to handle and his babies are a fine legacy to add to
my breeding program. Come back often to see Look's
Champagne Stetson and Look's Champagne Illusion grow!
