    The surgery done at MGH, Boston on September, 11, 2014 was an epic failure, to say the
    least.  There was no realistic post op treatment, something we did know going in. About 2
    weeks post-op, the entire thigh turned black & blue, swelling until it felt as though it would
    burst. The doctor at Mass General was 3 hours away and refused our request to have a
    visiting nurse come. So 4 more long days were spent in incredibly pain without relief-until
    the 8" long incision burst open, apparently the result of an internal ever growing abscess.  
    My daily battles with my own body continue & since the surgery I've lost ground with 4 long
    hospital stays including one that had me in the hospital for Christmas.  The ongoing,
    destruction of the large muscles of my thigh continue, with horrific disfigurement & constant
    pain leaving me never knowing what I will be able to wear on what days. The simple act of
    dressing-limited to sweats or compression breeches/tights is still almost impossible to
    predict.  

    To stop having dreams is to stop having hope!  And, personally speaking I still have plenty of
    dreams, hope, spirit and drive!

    A special long time dream in the making, is finally coming to fruition.  With a brick & mortar
    store at Sweetwater Farms, we may also take some our portable show shop on the road.
    Based on market needs, as assessed by experienced horsemen for horsemen, the Grand Re-
    Opening of The Silver Stirrup Studio for Horse Enthusiasts & Lovers, and the Equestrian &
    Riding public is upcoming!

    During 2017, Cape Cod Equine LLC will sponsor what we hope competitors & spectators alike
    will enjoy, with the events taking place at Sweetwater Farms.

    Our love for Appaloosas, combined with a devotion to the Appaloosa breed has created a
    drive within us that for the past 40 years has welcomed horse enthusiasts from all breeds to
    get spotted on an Appaloosa-doing whatever you enjoy doing with your horse!   At
    Sweetwater Farms we've got you covered!
      
          Life goes on...
                     & do so we!
    Since the 1970's at Sweetwater Farms, we have offered Quality Appaloosa Horses,
    with proven pedigrees, correct physical builds encouraging long-term soundness, and
    willing mindsets which believe is a combination of assets that can be geared towards
    equine excellence in a variety of competitive events-and often for the long haul.  

    Many Sweetwater horses enjoy unusually long show careers, as Youth & NonPro
    Horses.  Throughout their show careers many have always seemed capable of giving a
    heartfelt competitive effort at whatever a rider would decide to try, while also
    remaining sound & happy. Having a pleasant attitude is as essential & important as
    being well trained with regard to horses-whether prepping for Nationals or tacking up
    for trail riding.

    At Sweetwater Farms in addition to our Appaloosa horses, stallion services, sales and
    boarding, we also provide today's competitors and equine enthusiasts with what's
    needed to compete successfully in events from local to the World levels.  From
    maintaining show rigs, wheel bearings, winterizing, camper repairs-to offering the
    latest in Ready to Win show apparel, with some super coordinating tack, & plenty of
    finishing touches, including some handy farm & trail riding gear-we've got you covered.

    Over the years the needs of the family & farm evolved, bringing about some changes
    to Sweetwater Farms, not the least of which was changing from a show farm to a
    breeding farm. Other exciting happenings was the addition of The Silver Stirrup
    Studio as a Show Boutique & Model Horse Shop, perfect for Breyer, Artists Resins,
    Peter Stone & other model enthusiasts who show, collect &/or display their models,
    along with suitable custom made dolls, riders, tack and props.

    In December of 2002, a severe neuropathy caused by tumors, originally of unknown
    origin, in Laurie's large sensory nerve, which runs from the upper thigh to the knee.
    This kept constant pain on the large peripheral sensory nerve which runs from the
    spinal cord, down the side of the leg and was diagnosed without hope. After having
    spent 4 spacey years in bed & at that point 12 years in a wheelchair, cutting the
    tumors via a deep surgery was presented as the only option left.

Weanling Filly, also 2015 3rd World Champion Weanling Filly, sired by The Secret Pardon & out of
the mare,  JMK Fanatasia, an AQHA/PHBA daughter of Mr. Yella Fella, was sold by us in foal to The
Secret Pardon to Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Coons, who could not have been a better fit! Their work,
dedication and the great amount of care put into their filly was evident, as NO MORE SECRETS was
artfully shown by Thomas Coons to stand out with elegance and style in a very large class of
weanling divas!

2015- In some ways history repeated itself during 2015 when another mare we sold in foal to The
Secret Pardon was carrying a Champion!  "A COOL PACK", our 4 X National Appaloosa Halter
Champion & the 2014 Reserve World Champion Broodmare while carrying her next foal was sold to
Mr. Louis Mohanna. The foal "Cool" delivered was a fancy bay filly, HONEYS SECRET who sure

Caines to the 2015 Doug Schembri Memorial Ltd Open Futurity Champion!

The Secret Pardon's 2017 Stud Fee is $1300.
The chute fee is paid to Gumz Farms from the Stud Fee.
We welcome new breeders & horse enthusiasts to the Appaloosa breed!
"Diesel," as The Secret Pardon is known by friends & family, stands at Gumz Farms in Morganfield, KY.
At Gumz Farms, cooled & frozen semen is tested, collected and shipped under the expert, capable guidance of Amy &  
Kevin Gumz, Stallion & Breeding Managers of Gumz Farms.
In addition to caring for Diesel as a breeding stallion,  Diesel is also cared for, exercised & turned out to play-as a
"horse" which we believe is an important part of any stallion's life.
THE SECRET PARDON IS A MEDALLION EARNER & A MEDALLION SIRE, which means at least one of his foals has earned a
Medallion as a National High Point Champion, World Champion, &/or National Champion.
Adding to the obvious desirability of THE SECRET PARDON as a breeding stallion is his HYPP N/N status.   Although some
make light of HYPP, not all successful breeders and competitors in halter believe in actions that some consider to be
the creation of designer horses.  Since the mystery of HYPP was unraveled,  many halter horses carrying the gene for
HYPP began to be considered the "ultimate halter horse" since one of the many side effects known to be caused by this
potentially lethal genetic flaw, is a muscle type that appears larger and heavier than the muscles of most horses who do
not carry the gene for HYPP.
Contrary to what some believe, only one copy of the HYPP gene is needed for an HYPP N/H horse to be symptomatic &
appear to be visibly carrying a heavier muscle-but these horses are also susceptible to the Period Paralysis of any
number of muscles that keep the horse alive, and for unpredictable lengths of time which obviously causes the horse to
suffer.  Medications can control the symptoms, but effective medications are typically required for the life of the horse.
THE SECRET PARDON is HYPP N/N, therefor he cannot pass along the gene for HYPP along to his foals   79% color has
been produced from "Diesel's"  foal crops! (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015, 2016 *to date)

THE SECRET PARDON-ATTRIBUTES & FAQs
The Secret Pardon is a 2008, HYPP N/N, vividly colored Appaloosa, a Medallion Sire & sire of Futurity Champions.  Prior to his career
as a breeding stallion, "Diesel"
as friends call him, was well proven in the show arena, as a 5-X National Champion, Res. National Grand
Champion Halter Stallion & Res. World Champion.  Adding to his obvious desirability as an Appaloosa Sire is his pedigree of  
consistent producers of Appaloosa Excellence.

THE SECRET PARDON meets the strict criteria of today's elite World Caliber Stallions and Sire of Quality,
with exceptional style, class and charisma-accented with a vivid Appaloosa coat pattern.

THE SECRET PARDON IS A MEDALLION SIRE

Adding to his well rounded roster of positive attributes is The Secret Pardon's HYPP N/N status. Because
The Secret Pardon does not carry or possess the gene responsible for causing HYPP, he cannot pass it along
to his foals.  

A pedigree of proven Halter royalty, headed by the colored Appaloosa sire and colored Appaloosa dam of
The Secret Pardon, provided him with a solid foundation of Appaloosa excellence, which he has already
shown he's capable of passing on to his foals.

The Secret Pardon is also especially desirable as an Appaloosa Sire because of his HYPP N/N genetic status,
highly sought after by breeders seeking to eradicate HYPP from their foals, while also adding positive
attributes to the Appaloosa gene pool. Following a remarkable show career, THE SECRET PARDON is
continuing forward as an elite Appaloosa stallion and sire.

The Secret Pardon has many positive attributes to pass on to his offspring.  Adding to The Secret Pardon's
desirability as an Appaloosa Sire is his HYPP N/N status, a highly sought after genetic attribute by many
breeders seeking to alleviate chances of HYPP being passed to their foals. The Secret Pardon is one of a
limited number of National and World Champion Halter Stallions who are HYPP N/N.  

As of this date & to the best of our knowledge, Diesel has a 80% color average, as reported for his first 6
foal crops (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016*) +/-5%.

THE SECRET PARDON is an Appaloosa Breeders Trust stallion for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
