This is a write up about Swisher Hancock,
compliments of Jerry Jeppson:

Swisher Hancock is a fourteen hundred pound fifteen one stud. He is brown roan (looks blue roan) and is homozygous roan. He is by Dividend Coup out of a daughter of Platte Hancock. Dividend Coup was a 1989 Grulla Roan stud raised by Chip Merritt. He was by Plenty Try out of Chucker Maid. Both of his parents were then by Gooseberry. Since he was inbred being a double bred grandson of Gooseberry he wasn't a very big horse but in my experience a stud like him who is outcrossed sires much bigger offspring than himself. Swisher is a very heavy horse and some of the half sisters that Charles has are huge mares. I've had three different mares that were full sisters to Dividend Coup and two of them were only fourteen hands. But when I bred them to Apache some of the colts were huge. Charles has a daughter of Apache and Blues Socks (full sister by blood to Dividend Coup) and she is over sixteen two and would weigh over fifteen hundred pounds. So even though a horse like Dividend Coup was not an impressive horse to look at he sired much better colts than himself when he was outcrossed.

Swishers mother was by Platte Hancock, who was by Azul Caballo Amigo out of a daughter of Blue Valentine. Murray Mcdermott in Texas bought the stud when he was a young horse and bred some of his daughters to Dividend Coup which Murray owned most of his life. Platte Hancock (named for the Platte River which flows through Denver where he was born) was raised by Herman Swarts. He also owned Azul Caballo Amigo at the time which he bought as a colt here in Wyoming. Gerries Blue was the mother to Gerries Valentine by Plenty Try. Sam Shoultz owned her after he bought her from Murray McDermott, the owner of Dividend Coup and Platte Hancock and the breeder of Mr. Clyde Hancock.

Swishers second dam has five crosses to Three Bars which probably accounts for his speed and the athleticism and speed of his colts many of which are making really outstanding rope horses. Dusty and Nick (#9 headers and heelers) are winning on couple of his sons. Dusty and Nick Griffith in Alabama who have three or four of Charles Lowe's colts in training at any one time keep a son of Swisher Hancock for them to rope on themselves at roping's and rodeos. He wouldn't be there if he wasn't an outstanding head and heel horse. The crosses to Three Bars on the bottom of Swishers pedigree go through Tonto Bars GIll, Steel Bars, Sugar Bars, and Three Chicks. All of these horses will add a lot to any stallions pedigree.

Swisher is siring huge colts with more bone than just about any stallion out there. They also have the get up and go that any rider in performance disciplines need. Folks tend to throw the adjectives like performance and athletic around so often they don't mean anything any longer. But these Swisher colts can do it. Dusty and Nick Griffith have trained a lot of horses for owners the last few years (they start sixty to seventy colts in the average year and always have some in roping training). Very few really make the grade as top rope horses. The Swisher Hancock colts that they are riding for Charles can really do it.

Previous owner Charles Lowes comments, "I purchased a Platte Hancock daughter from Murray Mcdermott in 2002. She had a roan colt on her side by Dividend Coup that we later named Swisher Hancock. He puts a lot of bone on his colts but they still have the trainability and athleticism to make good rope horses. We just sold a head horse by Swisher for fifteen thousand. We have a number of his daughters and granddaughters in our broodmare band".
