Jurors consider Texas horse cloning lawsuit

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A Texas Panhandle federal jury deliberated another day without reaching a verdict on whether the American Quarter Horse Association wrongly bars cloned animals.

Jurors reported themselves deadlocked on a verdict Monday in Amarillo, but a federal judge ordered them to continue deliberations. They'll resume deliberations Tuesday morning. Deliberations began late Friday.

Two quarter horse breeders in 2012 sued the Amarillo-based AQHA, raising antitrust issues and challenging a ban on clone registration.

Association lawyers say a cloned horse doesn't come from a registered mother and father, which is one of its rules for listing. The association does register horses bred using other breeding technologies, however.

An AQHA attorney says the 280,000-member association has the right to set its own rules for issuing and maintaining pedigree records for American quarter horses.
