In 2014, Copper injured his front leg and lost his entire band. For the next few years, he took time to heal and began to gain back mares. In 2017, he managed to pick up a few of Silver’s mares after he was injured and unfortunately passed away. Not long after, he would acquire the rest of Silver’s former mares from stallion Brutus.
In May of 2020, he took over Mystery’s entire band after he passed away. The larger band proved to be too much for the older stallion and he would lose all of his newly gained mares, except for Grace, in July. He would go on to lose his long-time love Democracy and their colt Bart to the young bachelor, Remington in July as well.
