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

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.

80% color produced from "Diesel's" first 3 foal crops! (2011, 2012, 2013- to date)

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.

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 genetic attribute among the elite 95%
percentile of Appaloosas who have are National &/or World Champion Appaloosa Halter stallions.

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

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 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
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.

Mare owners on a global level can also breed to The Secret Pardon, via SBS
affiliates using Certified Frozen Semen, which is already overseas stored at an
SBS affiliate.  

Please see the page about breeding with Frozen Semen, Presently, The Secret
Pardon's Certified Frozen Semen is stored with an SBS Affiliate in Australia
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

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.
Since 1979 at  Sweetwater Farms we have continued striving to remain dedicated to breeding quality
Appaloosa Horses with Color, Talent, Class, Charisma, and Physical Correctness and Genetic Soundness,

also owner of The Secret Pardon, an HYPP N/N Appaloosa  Stallion, and Multiple National Halter
Champion, with cooled and frozen semen available to breeders via shipping worldwide.

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.  

Appaloosas are for sale include horses suited for a variety of  events and levels of riders.  Show horses
and prospects for sale include well bred horses suited for Halter, Pleasure, Reining and Cutting

Champion Halter Stallions who are HYPP N/N, and therefor cannot pass the gene along.
