Adding to the obvious desirability of THE SECRET PARDON as a breeding stallion is his HYPP N/N status.  

Although some make light of horses who carry the HYPP gene, some successful breeders and winning competitors take the life-
long detrimental and potentially lethal effects HYPP has on horses seriously and have been purposefully seeking to breed to
stallions  free of the defective HYPP gene.

Many progressive Halter Breeders, with the backing of the Equine Veterinary Community, are currently committed to seeking
HYPP N/N stallions to use for breeding, since the only known method of eradicating the HYPP gene from horses is by breeding
the faulty gene, identified as the cause what we refer to as HYPP, out of all horses naturally-and effectively.  

The responsible pairing of mares and stallions which are most likely to produce offspring who will not, or preferably cannot,
produce offspring which possess the dominant HYPP gene, is the only known method proven to be effective for permanently
eradicating the HYPP gene in all breeds known to have horses which possess, &/or are affected by HYPP, including the

THE SECRET PARDON is among an elite, small group of mares & stallions who are HYPP N/N, yet who have also won National
&/or World Championships while competing against halter horses which are HYPP N/H and known to carry a different type of
muscle, appearing to be stronger and larger than most horses naturally carry, even when on a stringent work schedule.

Because "Diesel" does not possess the HYPP gene he cannot pass along the gene for HYPP along to his foals.

When the stud fee for The Secret Pardon was raised slightly in 2013, we implemented a $7,500 added Cash Breeding Incentive for
foals sired by The Secret Pardon, from 2013 breedings purchased at the 2013 fee of $1,000.  Payouts are $5,000.00 to the first
eligible foal to win 2014 Weanling World Champion, with $2,500.00 for the first eligible foal to win 2014 Weanling Reserve World

If no eligible foals Cash Payouts from The Secret Pardon's 2013 Breeding Incentive as Weanlings at the 2014 World Championships,
eligible 2014 foals can compete for Breeding Incentive Payouts as Yearlings, at the 2015 Nationals and the 2015 World

More information explaining all the rules of the 2013 $7,500 Cash Breeding Incentive is explained in detail by clicking on the page
to be uploaded soon, with other pages, including our Sales page, also scheduled to be uploaded.
We appreciate all who elected to breed to The Secret Pardon, despite the economy. To show our sincere
appreciation to these mare owners, and to help encourage more people to breed their mares, a $,7500
Cash Breeding Incentive has been established, with payouts for 2014 foals sired by THE SECRET
PARDON, resulting from 2013 breedings at the posted fee of $1,000.  We hope other stallion owners will
join us in trying to increase the numbers of horses shown, and in doing so stimulate Halter entries.
The Secret Pardon's 2014 Stud Fee was $1,000.  "Diesel" stands at Char-O-Lot Ranch, and cooled semen is collected
and shipped under the expert, capable guidance of Sue Schembri,  Stallion & Breeding Manager of Char-O-Lot Ranch,
which Sue and her family have owned for more than three decades.

Mare owners in the USA who do not have access to a veterinarian able to make a few trips out to determine when a
mare is ready to be bred with cooled shipped semen, or mare owners with have the option of having their mares bred
to The Secret Pardon via the use of Cooled Shipped Semen so mares do not have to travel.  However, Char-O-Lot
Ranch provides the useful service of breeding mares at their farm using AI, and decades of hand-on experience, with
on-farm ultrasound, prompt results to blood work if needed, monitoring of progesterone, other hormonal levels and
of evidence of contagions.

With mares cultured, and treated until they are clean, even problem mares can be under optimal conditions to
become pregnant, and hold the pregnancy until re-confirmed at 45 days.  This can be especially productive choice for
mares who may require constant monitoring, via blood tests and ultrasound, prior to and after breeding and is one of
the many services Char-O-Lot Ranch offers to mare owners and those interested in Appaloosa show horses.  To book

National Champion & Reserve World Champion Halter stallion, now siring winning, colored foals via Cooled
Shipped Semen. Frozen Shipped Semen is available for those outside the USA.

At Sweetwater Farms, we personally believe breeding for HYPP N/N horses should be a high priority among
responsible, informed breeders-and it is with us.  Selectively breeding for HYPP negative horses is the only known
method proven to eradicate HYPP from all breeds known to be affected by it-Quarter Horses, Paints,Appaloosas
and most North American Color Breeds-and all breeds out-crossed on AQHA horses known to have the stallion,
Impressive in their pedigrees.  

The Appaloosas we offer for sale include horses suited for a variety of events, and skill levels of riders. Show
prospects for sale often include well bred performance horses suited, which when brought along in the right
hands can become the ever elusive, high caliber All 'rounder, something the Appaloosa in particular is especially
suited for. Broodmares in foal to The Secret Pardon are occasionally offered for sale.

The cost to purchase the frozen semen of The Secret Pardon, which is for 2 straw doses, as determined by our SBS
affiliate in the USA, to be used for two cycles, with one to be used to inseminate the mare during ovulation as confirmed
by ultrasound, and the second straw dose to be used if the mare did not become pregnant following the first insemination
with frozen semen during the first monitored ovulation, as confirmed via the use of ultrasound technology.

Mare owners are responsible for following the insemination procedure as recommended by our SBS Affiliates who
collected and froze The Secret Pardon.

Mare owners are required to work with a qualified facility which uses ultrasound to accurately determine when a mare is
ovulating, so the frozen semen is used during the most optimal time of obtaining a pregnancy, which is either to use the
entire dose at ovulation, or to split the straw dose and use half and then the other half 6 hours post ovulation.

We request that ultrasound imaging, in still or video format, be saved and sent to us following the use of the frozen
semen, should a problem occur.

Mare owners on a global level can also breed to The Secret Pardon, via SBS affiliates using Certified Frozen Semen, which
is stored at Peterson & Smith Equine Reproduction, our USA SBS affiliate.  

Please see the SBS web site and the information about breeding with Frozen Semen, Presently, The Secret Pardon's
Certified Frozen Semen is stored with an SBS Affiliate in the USA where it is to be handled and dispensed by the experts
in the field of Frozen Equine Semen, as determined by SBS, and approved by Laurie Rylander, stallion owner.

We retain the right to not sell frozen semen for use in mares who have been proven not to be good candidates for
becoming pregnant, including mares over the age of 17 years.

Contact Laurie Rylander via  email, or by phone at 508-896-6021, for additional information about The Secret Pardon's
frozen semen, for frozen semen purchase contracts, and for procedural protocols for using Frozen Semen, stored at an SBS

We strongly urge all who are considering the use of Frozen Equine Semen to learn all they can about what they are
considering purchasing, how it is tested, frozen and correctly used, which is vastly different from methods used to
inseminate with Cooled Semen. The SBS (Select Breeders Service) web site has a wealth of information on the topic in
their online Library which is well worth reviewing.

THE SECRET PARDON is HYPP N/N, a still fairly uncommon genetic attribute among the elite 95% percentile of
Appaloosas who have are National &/or World Champion Appaloosa Halter stallions. Because The Secret Pardon
does not carry the dominant, positive gene for HYPP, he cannot pass it along to his off-spring. This is a definite
bonus for breeders of halter horses, and horses of all other disciplines who carry the offending AQHA genes.

At Sweetwater Farms, we personally believe breeding for HYPP N/N horses should be a high priority among
responsible, informed breeders-and it is with us.  Selectively breeding for HYPP negative horses is the only known
method proven to eradicate HYPP from all breeds known to be affected by it-including Quarter Horses, Paints,
Appaloosas, Palominos & other North American Color Breeds-and horses with Quarter Horse genes in their

Any horse which does not test negative for HYPP carries the dominant, defective HYPP gene and runs the risk of a
Hyperkalemic induced episodes, which causes painful and occasionally lethal symptoms, along with a mutation in
muscle type. Unfortunately, unless N/H horses are bred to N/N horses, the resulting offspring will also possess the
defective HYPP gene.

Now more than ever, HYPP N/N stallions of Quality have become highly sought after by progressive breeders
seeking to breed foals with physical and genetic soundness.  By doing so, this will help permanently eradicate HYPP
and the heartaches associated with it, via the only method proven to work-which is by naturally breeding the
flawed gene out of all breeds with specific AQHA genes in their lineage.

"Diesel's" Sire, The Secret, and his Dam, Pardon Me Poise, who passed in 2012, are renowned, colored, Appaloosa
producers of Multiple World & National Champions, and Recipients of Lifetime Achievement Awards earned and
awarded based on the number of successful production records as the Sire and Dam of Multiple World and National
Champions, including The Secret Pardon.
