Chino Hills, CA (PressExposure) May 10, 2011 -- Lukas, the World's Smartest Horse (according to the World Records Academy) and Guinness World Record Holder, has released his newest video Story Time with Lukas to rave reviews. According to Karen Murdock, Lukas' owner/trainer, "I wrote Story Time for children, and it's my favorite so far - we've had a tremendous response, especially from adults!" With heart-warming pictures to accompany the touching tale of Lukas' transformation, it gives the viewer an inside look at Murdock and Lukas' legendary bond. Excerpts from Story Time:
"I was born to run very fast and win horse races - my name is Lukas. My great-great-grandfather was a famous champion, and my owners hoped that I could be like him. I tried very hard to do what they wanted, but my legs weren't strong enough, so I got hurt and couldn't race anymore. My owners found a new stable for me, but when my legs healed I was even slower than before, so they gave me away to someone else. This owner didn't want to keep me either, and I went to several other homes which got worse with each move. Finally, I ended up with people who didn't feed me and I became very skinny and sad."
"One day, a lady drove by and saw me - she felt so sorry for me she offered to buy me. She was a trainer and wanted me to be a jumper. I tried my best, but the work was very hard and it hurt my sore legs. She put me up for sale too because she didn't want to keep a horse who couldn't win ribbons. I was advertised as a kind and sensitive horse - I was going to another new home, but this time it would be different."
See why the rest is history: over one million web-site visitors from sixty-four countries, television appearances, radio segments, a documentary and book, event invitations, titles, awards and even a Guinness World Record. Lukas and Murdock donate their time and services to show how wonderful and intelligent animals are for their improved treatment.
