AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — Jurors in the Texas Panhandle will decide whether the American Quarter Horse Association wrongly bars cloned animals.

Deliberations resume Monday in the federal trial in Amarillo. Jurors deliberated for about two hours late Friday before recessing for the weekend.

Rancher Jason Abraham and veterinarian Gregg Veneklasen in 2012 sued the Amarillo-based AQHA to raise antitrust allegations and challenge a ban on registering cloned horses.

Association’s lawyers have said a clone horse doesn’t come from a registered mother and father, which is one of the group’s rules for listing. The association does list horses that have been bred using artificial insemination, frozen semen and cooled semen.

An AQHA attorney says the 280,000-member association has the right to set its own rules for issuing and maintaining pedigree records for American quarter horses.
