Finding this fascinating. Anyone know of any bang for buck resources (articles, essays, etc.) to learn about cloning?

Oh do I have an article for you: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-clones-of-polo/

In Argentina, they've been cloning horses for Polo for years.

"At first, many of Adolfo's cloned embryos died during gestation. But they refined their technique and now tell us they have an 85 percent successful birth rate and have not experienced any health problems."

"They can now create 100 clones a year and they're using them in Adolfo's already successful breeding business. They mate the clones with champion horses and sell their foals for up to $250,000. But they never sell the clones."
