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 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 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 World Champion.

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.

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

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.  

Any horse which does not test HYPP N/N carries the dominant, defective HYPP gene and runs
the risk of a Hyperkalemic induced episode, 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.

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.

Both, "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 are
Recipients of Lifetime Achievement Awards earned and awarded based on 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
    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 family own.

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.

straw doses, should the mare not become pregnant with the first use of the frozen semen.

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.

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 affiliate.

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.
