|Adding to the obvious desirability of THE SECRET PARDON as a breeding stallion is his HYPP |
|N/N status. |
|Some owners and breeders appear to have grown complacent about the HYPP issue, while |
|others, new to our breed are uninformed, or misinformed, and despite proven, scientific |
evidence about the long-term, negative effects breeding horses known to carry the dominant,
defective HYPP gene will continue to have on the Appaloosa gene pool-and the future of the
Appaloosa, not to mention the quality of life many individual horses positive for the HYPP
gene may never enjoy.
|Although some make light of HYPP, not all successful breeders and winning competitors take |
|the life-long effects HYPP has on horses with nonchalance, and have been purposefully |
seeking to breed horses free of the defective HYPP gene for some time now.
|Many progressive Halter Breeders, with the backing of the Equine Veterinary Community, are |
|currently committed to seeking HYPP N/N stallion to use, since the only known method of |
ridding horses of HYPP, is by breeding the faulty gene, identified as the cause what we refer
to as HYPP, out naturally. The responsible breeding of crosses most likely to produce
offspring who will not, or cannot possess this dominant gene along is the only known method
which has proven to be effective for eradicating the gene in all breeds, including the
Appaloosa, known to possess HYPP.
|THE SECRET PARDON is among an elite small group of stallions who are HYPP N/N, yet have |
|also won National & World Championships. |
|Because "Diesel" does not possess the HYPP gene he cannot pass along the gene for HYPP |
|along to his foals.|

|When we had to raise our stud fee in 2013, a $7,500 Cash Breeding Incentive was |
|implemented 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
|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 Championships.
|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.
| THE SECRET PARDON is HYPP N/N, a still fairly uncommon attribute among the elite National & |
|World Champion Appaloosa Halter stallions, although the failure of any horse to test as HYPP N/N |
proves the horse carries a dominant, defective gene which causes painful and occasionally lethal
symptoms, which unless bred to horses who are HYPP N/N, will be passed the defective gene onto
|However, 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.
| 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.
|The Secret Pardon possesses a rare, proven, one of a kind pedigree of halter royalty. |
|Both, "Diesel's" Sire, The Secret, and his Dam, Pardon Me Poise, who passed in 2012, are |
|renowned producers of multiple World & National Champions, and recipients of Lifetime |
Achievement Awards, earned and awarded based on their successful production records as the
Sire and Dam of Multiple World and National Champions, including The Secret Pardon.
|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 is $1,000 and he stands at Char-O-Lot Ranch.
The Secret Pardon, or "DIESEL" as we call him, stands at Char-O-Lot Ranch, in Myakka City, FL., USA, under the
capable, expert guidance of Sue Schembri, Stallion & Breeding Manager of Char-O-Lot Ranch, which Sue and her
Mare owners in the USA can breed 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
a breeding to The Secret Pardon contact Sue Schembri, Stallion Manager, or Laurie Rylander, Stallion Owner.

different from methods used to inseminate with Cooled Semen. The SBS (Select Breeders Service) web

THE SECRET PARDON is a distinctive HYPP N/N, Appaloosa stallion. With a striking, vividly colored Appaloosa
coat pattern, a proven show record at the National level as a 5 time National Champion & Res. National
Champion Halter Stallion, and a one of a kind pedigree of Halter Royalty, The Secret Pardon has many positive
attributes to pass to his offspring, which many other World and National Champions do not.
Adding to The Secret Pardon's desirability as an Appaloosa Sire is his HYPP N/N genetic status, now a highly
sought after genetic attribute informed, responsible breeders seek to eradicate HYPP once and for all. The
Secret Pardon is one of a limited number of National and World Champion Halter Stallions who are HYPP N/N.
THE SECRET PARDON is an Appaloosa Breeders Trust stallion for 2013 and 2014.
The Secret Pardon is a producer of color, point earners, class winners, Grand Champions and Regional Futurity
Champions and Reserves. The Secret Pardon is one of a limited number of National and World Champion Halter
Stallions who are HYPP N/N. THE SECRET PARDON is an Appaloosa Breeders Trust stallion for 2013 and 2014.
THE SECRET PARDON meets the strict criteria for that of a top modern Halter Stallion and Sire, with exceptional style,
quality, color, class and charisma-and he does not carry the defective HYPP gene, and therefor cannot pass it along to his
get. His HYPP N/N status, and pedigree of proven Halter royalty provides The Secret Pardon with many positive
attributes, created with a solid foundation of proven Appaloosa excellence, to pass on to his foals.
The Secret Pardon is especially desirable as an Appaloosa Sire worthy of breeding to because of his HYPP N/N genetic
status, now highly sought after by informed, responsible breeders seeking to eradicate HYPP from their foals-once and
for all, while adding positive attributes to the Appaloosa gene pool.
Following a remarkable show career, THE SECRET PARDON is continuing forward as an elite, HYPP N/N Appaloosa stallion
and sire. As of this date, to the best of our knowledge, he's produced about 85% color with his first three foal crops,
(2011, 2012 & 2013). With a limited breedings he has sired Class Winners, Point Earners, Grand Champions, Reserve Grand
Champions, National Champion Top 5, and Regional Weanling Futurity Champions & Res.Champions.
A limited number of Private Treaty Stud Fees may be considered for 2014. World & National Champions, Producers of
World & National Champions & Superior Halter horses, are among those which may qualify for PT stud fees.
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, the
North American Color Breeds-and the Appaloosa breed.
We are pleased to be able to offer THE SECRET PARDON, an HYPP N/N, Appaloosa stallion of quality for
consideration as the stallion of your choice to breed to-for many of the reasons, not the least of which is
knowing that as an HYPP N/N stallion there is no chance of the HYPP defective gene being carried to your foal
