Years ago AQHA lost in its battle to stop multiple embroyo transplant foals from one mare from being registered in court. I can remember when it was the going rage in racing Quarter horse breeding establishments. The vets couldn't be bothered with an Arabian with the money to be made with Quarters. Ah so it takes the year of conception/carrying the foal, another year and almost 2 years before that foal gets to the yearling auction sales for the big money.
THEN the surprise! The buyers did not want foals carried by another mare! Sure put a dent in that aspect of Quarter breeding (racing). Do not know today, this moment, but cannot believe much has changed.
TODAY AQHA lost another battle regarding the registration of clones which I am totally against.
We all have our own opinions and several will dis-agree. After moving to Texas sold my Equitainers for shipped semen. Have been there several times, no more. Either live cover or open.
Am asking Hansi that we not cover again (your views are well known) the parts you decry but just AND ONLY discuss how AI has hurt the breed in respects to all these embroyos from one mare and the aspect of now clones. My feelings are this will harm the breed tremendously.
