Since Prometea was created from DNA of an adult horse, her birth sets the stage for the cloning of prized show and racehorses.
To create Prometea, the team fused a skin cell taken from the Haflinger breed mother with an empty equine egg.
Only one survived full-term and Prometea was born naturally 336 days later, weighing 36kg -the only one of 328 reconstructed embryos to make it.
