Pearl: Homozygous Pearl Iberian horse: prlprl.  Pearl is a recessive gene, unlike most other color genes.  PRLPRL gives us no pearl.  PRLprl is heterozygous pearl: no effect, possible lightening of red, but paired with one copy of the cream gene it gives us a pseudo-double dilute.  prlprl with nothing else gives us homozygous pearl, and turns red "apricot" and black horses look similar to amber champagnes.  Their eyes are amber or green, and their skin is a pale pinkish-grey.

But Champagne and Pearl are 2 different genes that cause similar color changes.
