LUKAS, WORLD’S SMARTEST HORSE, RECOGNIZED BY CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE

Lukas, rescued former racehorse, receives Award Certificate for his hard work and inspiration in setting Guinness World Record

On December 10, 2010, Assemblyman Curt Hagman (Chino, CA) presented Lukas’ owner/trainer Karen Murdock with a certificate to congratulate her and Lukas for their hard work and Lukas’ demonstration of superior intelligence, which earned him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Lukas was recently declared “World’s Smartest Horse for…Most Numbers Correctly identified by a Horse in One Minute.”

Assemblyman Hagman expressed his gratitude to Karen and Lukas for reminding California residents of their rural roots and how important it is to assure that the next generation respects and appreciates the roll of horses and other  animals in preserving that connection.  He also commended Karen and Lukas’ community efforts to educate and encourage families to involve their children in wholesome, humane activities involving animals.

Lukas, an off-the-track thoroughbred gelding, could have had a pretty dismal future because he wasn’t much of a runner.  Then Karen adopted him and discovered that he was more of a nerd than a jock, and Lukas’ entire life changed. Her love and patience helped him develop and exhibit his mathematical ability.

Lukas is a living example that just finding the right niche in life can unleash spectacular talents.  If Lukas has a favorite song, it’s probably, “You’re Nobody ’Til Somebody Loves You.”

Lukas and Karen are now sharing their love as Lukas donates his time to non-profit causes to “…promote hope and happiness for all creatures,” including an invitation to participate in the “Wounded Warriors Program,” which provides services for severely wounded veterans..  Karen Murdock is also working on training videos to encourage the kind practices that enabled Lukas to shine.

Lukas wishes everyone a very happy holiday.   [Read more...]
