Chino Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2011
Lukas, the World's Smartest Horse (according to the World Records Academy) and Guinness World Record Holder, has been honored as the first four-legged member of the Equine Welfare Alliance (http://www.eqinewelfarealliance.org). Lukas' owner/trainer Karen Murdock and her world-famous gelding have vowed to support the E.W.A's pledge to create a collaborative global community based on love for animals.
The E.W.A. – "The Conscience of the Horse Industry" – is an international organization that represents equine welfare groups, equine rescues, and individuals involved in grass roots efforts to care for horses. According to John Holland, co-founder of the E.W.A., "Lukas' membership will serve as a reminder of just how amazing equines are. Lukas' playful brilliance forever puts the lie to those who denigrate equines as justification for their cruel treatment. Moreover, the loving relationship between Karen and Lukas represents the epitome of what horse ownership can and should be."
Lukas is an ex-racer and former rescue who reached world-wide acclaim within months of his You-Tube debut in 2009. His touching story has spread to sixty-four countries with over one million visitors to his web-site, and his media links continue to grow. Lukas has been on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, HLN and Inside Edition, and in feature articles released by the Associated Press and America Online. His journey has been heard on Pet Talk Live Radio, Pet Life Radio, Pet Place Radio, All Paws Pet Talk Radio, RFD-Radio and the Horse Radio Network, among many others. Lukas was nominated for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the 2011 Equine Vision Award sponsored by American Horse Publications. Also, he received a certificate of recognition for his accomplishments from California State Assemblyman Curt Hagman.
Lukas and Murdock are dedicated to sharing hope and happiness with those in need and they donate their time and services to that end.
