RE: [RC] BBC E-mail: Champion endurance horse cloned - Melissa Alexander

The funny thing is... there's no guarantee the horse will be anything like
the horse that was cloned. 

A clone is an identical twin. Identical twins generally have a lot in common
-- and a lot that's absolutely not the same, including talents, skills, and
frequently even looks!! 

And then there's the nurture part of the equation. Nature's influence is
pretty much set at conception. After that it's environment and experience.
This horse will, I assume, have all the best endurance-specific experiences
from birth, but that still doesn't mean, in the end, he'll be one whit
better than any other individual.

I'd hate to think how much they paid for him!

Melissa
