Lawyers for two Texas quarter horse breeders and the American Quarter Horse Association are in court this week debating whether cloned animals may be excluded from the group's register. The breeders argue that the rule has resulted in a reduced supply of quarter horses, while the association says the rule that registered horses must come from a registered dam and sire has been in place since 1940. The ruling could set a precedent that applies to other organizations.
