Remarkable Reading for Horse Lovers

Remarkable Reading for Horse Lovers

Have you heard about Lukas? Folks are calling him "the world's smartest horse." In fact, Lukas has been all over TV and the internet.

My friend Karen Murdock, Lukas' owner, has written a book about her experiences with this remarkable retired racehorse. (Just look at him in his Easter bunny ears. This horse was previously discarded as unmanageable and untrainable. Now he's a liberty trick horse.)

Here's Lukas' story:

Who is the world's smartest horse? Playing with Lukas, by Karen Murdock, offers an inside look at a remarkable partnership between a human and a horse. Karen Murdock saw the potential in a troubled retired racehorse rescued him.

  2. I have seen him on TV!!!!!!! OMG so funny I read this! I watched a short segment on him and ran outside cause my 2 yr old is CONSTANTLY getting into and out of everything, picking up and running off with stuff, so I decided I was gonna teach him some tricks once I saw just how smart a horse really can be! I have him (almost) bringing him his halter to me just after a few times showing me! I have an extremely smart horse one of those you have to stay 5 steps ahead of...very curious, my other two just dont care...LOL...but she really inspired me to work with my young one...OMG how crazy you posted this cause I just saw about her a few months ago!!!! It was so amazing what she has done, and I LOVED that she didnt give up on him, such a happy horse, and I was just so impressed with her and her love for him!

  4. I'm following! I'm Rachel Blanton...yes Jack (my 2 yr old) is giving us such joy, and we have raised him since he was 6 months old. Once I saw just how smart he was I'd wish I'd started sooner teaching him things! I have some pics on there I think, of him bringing me his halter, hmmm if not I'll post them, it'll be on my facebook page raising Jack-a-bo, if you care to take a look some time...he's just an awesome little horse. Cant wait to check out your facebook page!
