Posted by on Monday, December 9th, 2019 in

A Texas family in Las Vegas for the National Finals Rodeo is in the business of cloning horses.

“She’s my heart horse, she’s my best friend,” Lexie Russell said about Crash. “I was there when she was born.”

Crash is the child of a cloned stallion.

“We’ve cloned now thousands of livestock — cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, deer,” Blake Russell said.

Russell is the president of ViaGen Pets & Equine. The company has cloned more than 500 horses.

“All of the horses that I ride or train are by a cloned stallion or have cloning somewhere in the process of making that possible,” Lexie said.
