“It started out as a fun celebration for Lukas’ birthday,” according to Murdock, “and he enjoyed it so much that we’ve kept it as a tradition for the holidays.” Each photo session finds Lukas nickering and Murdock laughing, “I don’t know who has more fun, him or me,” she states. Moreover, in keeping with their dedication to helping those in need of second chances, the hats serve an additional purpose; a way for the public to relate to horses in a personal and positive manner. “As a result,” Murdock concludes, “they are more likely to care about those they are charmed by.”
