It is a well known fact that horses are extremely intelligent and feeling animals, especially to those of us that have a true love for all horses. However this horse surpasses most other’s smartness amazingly! He is a chestnut Thoroughbred gelding owned by Karn Murdock of Walnut, Canada.
Lukas originally a racehorse however he did not excel on the track. Unfortunately like many failed racehorses, he was mistreated once his owners found him to not have the makings of a racing champion. The gelding ended up starving in someones backyard but luckily he was rescued and Murdock purchased him when he was nine years old.
Murdock purchased Lukas as a ‘project horse’ but it wasn’t long before she realised this horse was unusually intelligent in a variety of ways! Since his rescue he has become one of the top liberty performers in Canada. He has attracted world-wide fame due to his amazing abilities. He also holds a Guinness World Record Title for “the most numbers correctly identified by a horse in one minute”, which he achieved on 16th of June 2010.
