Im The Secret has sired multiple World Champions in APHA and PtHA, WCHA Champions and Breeders Halter Futurity Champions.
His get have won over $50,000 in lifetime earnings!! We could not be More Proud and Thankful.

We regretfully announce that Im the Secret, aka Cliff, will not be standing the 2019 breeding season. In late November, Cliff sustained a traumatic head injury while in his stall and while he currently remains healthy and sound, the injury was such that we suspect the possibility of neurological damage. Injuries such as this are never easy and while we hope that he may make a full recovery, we have decided to err on the side of what is best for Cliff and give him the rest and care needed if he is to live a comfortable life on our farm, which is what any good animal deserves. It is possible that he may recover and return to the breeding shed in future seasons, however, it is also possible that the 2019 foal crop arriving will be his last.

Cliff has always been special to us, not because of his success as a show horse or sire, but because of who he is as an individual. Cliff was a home-raised orphan who was prepared and shown by us. For those of you that keep your own horses on a small family farm, you know that this means we were the ones feeding him every day, turning him out, picking his stall, and grooming him. We're, of course, saddened to not stand him in 2019, but we are still so blessed to have him in our barn.

We truly thank all of you for supporting Cliff as a sire. We're thankful for Cliff's role in connecting us to so many wonderful folks throughout the horse industry. While this loss will certainly change our breeding program, we at Kooiker Show Horses will continue to be dedicated to raising, developing, and showing elite prospects for both Halter and Performance.
