lol it would be a "real horse", and I doubt anyone would sell you a clone $$$ in place of a traditionally acquired foal. ;) Futhermore, I doubt the cloned animals offspring would be in any way distinguishable from other babies.
So basically, what Im seeing is that you have a moral issue with cloning, and are throwing every bit of distaste at it by implying clones arent real horses, referring to things like "second hand genes", and insulting YOUR perception of the type of person who would seek a clone.
