Lukas, the World's Smartest Horse (According to The World Records Academy) would like to thank Sharon Miner for being included in her newly released book Beloved Horses in Second Careers. Sharon generously gave Lukas' story a full description to convey his touching journey and the renowned bond that he and owner/trainer Karen Murdock share. Lukas has previously appeared in The World Records Almanac, Horsenameographies and his own heartwarming tale Playing With Lukas.
An excerpt from Beloved Horse in Second Careers:
"He's a throwaway, Karen, what do you expect? Quit wasting your time on him....Instead she decided to find out what Lukas would enjoy doing...Karen decided to give Lukas a sense of control in his life by letting him play. She incorporated tricks in her training, and Lukas blossomed."
"This once-upon-a-time throwaway has been on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, HLN and Inside Edition. The Associated Press recently released a feature story on him, Guinness is considering a record on him, and he has delighted crowds at Equine Affaire and America's Family Pet Expo."
"Lukas has been a life changing gift not only for me, but also for countless others, his story has touched the hearts of many thousands of admirers. I'm grateful for the many lessons his presence has bestowed. Our purpose has been to share the happy results of kind training, as well as show the greatness and intelligence of horses."
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye. H. Jackson Brown
