    I don't agree with cloning horses and I am very pleased that these cloned horses are not eligilble for registration. My fear is that people will register these cloned horses off of breeder's certificates of other horses. The horse wouldn't have the same name or bloodlines on paper as the original horse but that won't stop them from being able to show. I don't think that cloning horses will benefit the industry in any way.

    On the surface I'm not a big fan of cloning but I do support it because of what can be learned from it. I'm old enough to remember when they started doing organ transplants and the huge uproar over that. Today their very common and have saved many 1000's of lives.

    Lots of people are saying 'I don't agree with it' but not voicing any real reason why. Is it just discomfort with the idea? I understand the concerns of those who are saying they don't want it to disadvantage new studs.

    If someone wants to spend $150K to clone a horse, champion or not, it doesn't bother me a bit. It takes a lot more than DNA to make a great horse.
