The genetics of ET-FRH was taken by Cryozootech
| || ET-FRH is the outstanding showjumper. He has won everything ! From
national competitions in Germany to the Olympic Games in Atlanta, and
the World cup in Geneva in 1996, the champion has shown his talent and
the performance of his genetics. His prizes list is unique !|
Even at 17 years, in 2004, he remains in front of the international scene, with his victory in the Grand Prix of Münster. Hugo Simon, his rider and owner, considers ET-FRH as the horse of his life.
ET-FRH, who is castrated, will unfortunately have no offsprings. That is why Cryozootech presented its solution to Hugo Simon. At first, he was disconcerted, then he understood well that it meant to give birth to an "ET-stallion", and not to a second jumper.
Eric Palmer took cells on the champion's chest in the stables of Hugo Simon in Germany. Once cultivated and frozen in liquid nitrogen at -196°c, the genetics can be preserved safely.

E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion is in France !
August Good news from E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion : he is growing well and getting stronger by the minute.
Of course a family likeness with E.T. !
This foal is already showing strengh, energy and determination ; features that the great champion E.T. had.
Birth of E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion, clone of “E.T.” show jumping champion, which shall generate offspring.
CRYOZOOTECH is happy to announce the birth of E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion, clone of “E.T.” show jumping gelding, who has had with the rider Hugo Simon the best record of winning in show jumping. “E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion” will give the possibility to breeders to dispose of the castrated “E.T.”’s genes. Birth of E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion’s first offspring is planned for 2009.
International cooperation to preserve an exceptional genetic heritage
E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion, future stallion
E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion was born on 2nd June 2006. Like E.T., he has a stripe and two socks on his hind legs but the fine and side ways stripe on his nose is very different from E.T.’s blaze. On the other hand, the DNA test carried out by the official laboratory LABOGENA has shown the same identical genetic content.
will be registered in the Belgium studbook « Stud-book Zangersheide »
which was founded by Léon Melchior. As soon as 2001, M. Melchior
has shown his support to horse cloning, and confirmed it later by registering
the first two clones produced by Cryozootech: Pieraz-Cryozootech-Stallion
and Paris-Texas, Quidam de Revel’s clone.
Even before his
birth, many international breeders, who wish to dispose of this exception
genetic, have participated to this project by contributing to set up
the syndicate, which is proprietor and managing authority of E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion,
and is divided in 200 shares.
E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion will come to France in Cryozootech’s stud where he will progressively during his second year start his work as a stallion and progress to conducting it fully after his third birthday.
Therefore the few mares, which will be inseminated in 2008, will give birth in 2009 to the first generation of foals fathered by E.T.Cryozootech-Stallion.
Cryozootech, leader in sport horse cloning
Cryozootech, founded in 2001 to preserve rare genetic heritage, has realised the above-mentioned projects.
Cryozootech is awaiting this summer the birth of Calvaro V clone and next year the birth of Rusty's clone, the great dressage champion. Furthermore, across the world seven orders for clones of sport horses have been taken on behalf on their owners. In total, Cryozootech genetic bank has today the cells of 49 horses.
