You have answered yourself there. Its because of the cooling period and being introduced to a female, males will stop or slow down on feeding during the breeding season and females will often want more food.

I've just started a thread on the subject if you wanted to take a look

It is best to give your female 3-5 days rest in between breeding's before re-introducing the male.
