August 6, 2003 - Italian scientists say they have created the world's first cloned horse, Prometea, from an adult cell taken from the horse who gave birth to her.
The first, Prometea, a female, was born in 2003 and is now two years old Professor Galli announced his second success, the birth of Pieraz-Cryozootech, the world's first stallion clone.
83), you state that the cloned foal Prometea is a genetic twin of her birth mother which contributed the nuclear DNA.
