| Updated at: 1357 PST, Saturday, April 24, 2010|
NEW YORK: Lukas now 16, is a rescued off-the-track thoroughbred who had bowed both tendons as a young horse preparing for a life of racing.
Lukas came into Karen's life when he was around 10 years of age. Lukas identifying colors, shapes, and catching a rag being tossed towards his face. Horses would not normally want something flying around their head. Lukas is motivated by carrots reassuring words, subtle hand gestures, clicks and smooches from Karen. All the while looking for that next delicious carrot.
Karen and Lukas want to focus on spreading the word that horses have a great deal of potential beyond the racetrack, and those facing bleak futures.
