From the wires: [color:blue]A healthy and energetic mule named Idaho Gem is the first member of the horse family to be cloned, joining the barnyard of cloned animals that now includes sheep, cows, pigs, cats and rodents. <br><br>Researchers at the University of Idaho cloned the mule using a cell from a mule fetus and an egg from a horse. Idaho Gem is the genetic brother of Taz, a champion racing mule, and the researchers said the clone mules also will be trained to race. <br><br>The cloning was particularly unusual because mules -- the hybrid from a donkey and a horse -- are almost without exception sterile and unable to produce their own young. <br><br>"A mule can't do it himself, so we thought we would give it a hand," said Gordon L. Woods of the University of Idaho, the leader of the mule cloning team. </font color=blue><br><br>Give 'em all a hand!<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
