A Vote for You!!
Haven't had a lot of time for writing something beside, a good morning vote. Well, today it is raining, slow cool rain, so it gives me time, in between canning veggies and pickles, to do some voting and getting on the computer.
Working on getting a young colt, (mini) and then even get offered his mama, she had been hurt, but seems to be OK, since she is trotting around. So in a week or so, I should have a few little horses.

Few things about Whiskey: The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here is a vote from Fatima.
Good evening and thank you so much for voting me HOTD. School began 3 hours late because of the icy weather we had last night, so we peeked into HorseChannel before leaving for school. We were surprised to see me in the spotlight this morning. I am happy in my new home. I just wish that Fancy would not be so bossy. Sometimes she is nice though. We get treats and attention here. It has been a long time since I had a lot of grain. I love my grain. I even try to eat with Fancy in her bowl. She let me get a morsel and then she chases me away. Trigger is hardly ever mean. But he takes Fancy's side when things get touchy.
Well, I just wanted to leave a blog to say thank you for all the kind blogs and friendship. HorseChannel sure is a great place!
Have a great night
Love Fatima ♥

THE LAST STORY....
Good Morning, we left a thank you vote. Dr. Cook left the next day for a veterinary conference in California, but he asked Dr. McGurrin to call him after seeing Mackie. I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers these people were the BEST of the BEST, surely they could help us. My friend, Jack trailered us and Mackie did super. We were met by Dr. McGurrin and her team. The first thing they did after taking a very complete history, was to attach probes and set up an ECG, as the printout started, Dr. McGurrin asked one of her team to tell her what it showed, he hesitated but finally said, "it shows that this horse is in heart failure". I felt my knees buckle, someone grabbed me and Dr. McGurrin handed me a box of tissue, she said, "you are going to hear lots of talk today, please try to be calm, when I have gathered all my information we will sit down and discuss it together" There were lots more tests. With all of the poking, probing and tests Mackie remained relaxed and calm. We took him back to a stall and went to discuss his case. Dr. McGurrin explained that typically horses do not show signs of heart condition, particularly racehorses, that is why you hear the horror stories about them dropping dead at the track. She felt in Mackie's case this was a very long standing problem, and eventually his heart just got to the point where it could no longer keep up. She wanted to assure me and of course, Dr. Cook that we did not miss anything, they just don't give any indication until it is often too late. She said sometimes drugs help, but in Mackie's advanced case she did not recommend it. I asked if she was prepared to help us that day, she said yes, I agreed to let him go as long as she allowed me to stay with him. She asked if I needed a bit of time with him first, when we were alone I explained to him that it was time, that I would be there and to please trust me one last time. I held him, I stroked his neck and told him how very loved he was, my face and my voice where the last he saw and heard. Sure ruined my make up that day, the ride home was terrible, Jack kept saying "let it out kid" I did...Dr. Cook was on the answering machine when I got home telling me how sorry he was and that he was glad Jack was with me, I did the right thing. Dr. MGurrin sent me a copy of the autopsy along with Mackie's halter a lovely braid of his tail and a plaster imprint of his hoof with his name. She said she removed and preserved his heart, she uses it for teaching purposes. I get great comfort from that. I learned 2 things that day, 1. Mackie never gave up, his heart did, 2. it is just a body, his spirit lives on, this is for you Mackie, I love you, we will meet again. If you feel like you know Mackie, then this month has been a success, thanks to all who supported us, special thanks to the dogs that came by every day to vote, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Hi, I had to be at work for 4:15AM, then I had physio after work, sorry I'm late. We left a vote for you. I hope I can get thru these last two days. Things were going well for us, but on August 2/2007 as I was calling the guys in for supper, Mackie laid down just as he approached the gate, not that odd, the strange part was it took him a really long time to get up and with a struggle, it was like slow motion, hard to describe but strange. He looked absolutely exhausted, he had no temp, breathing was regular, he was E, D, P, P, but something just was not right, I went with my gut and I called Dr. Cook. He came the next day and after a very long thorough exam he asked me to put on my "serious hat", he said Mackie needed to be seen by a specialist at the Equine Hospital, a Cardiologist. I said, make the appointment, I'll arrange trailering, Thanks so much for standing by us thru the month. Your support means so much to me. Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Good Morning, I'm so off routine, we had to start work at 5AM yesterday and again Monday, they don't realize that this cuts into my HC time... We left a windy Canadian vote. I did the usual things for the stumbling without much success, but remember it was sporadic, one day while jumping a small course of xrails, Mackie just lost it before the jump and he fell down. Clearly he was upset and the way he looked at me was like, WHAT HAPPENED?? I was not hurt and he looked OK, that was when Dr. Cook came to evaluate. First thing he said was, "you don't want navicular..." after his exam he said he was drawing blood to test for EPM, my heart sank and I said NO, HE HAS NAVICLULAR. I had read a bit about EPM, and I did not want that. I won't go into detail, google it and you will see. It is a neurological disease with some fairly nasty consequences. So, I waited for the blood work to come back. Enjoy your day, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Thanks to everyone that voted us HOTD, we are so excited, we are getting close to the end of the month, I still have lots of story to tell. We left you a vote this afternoon. When things started to go wrong, at first I didn't know what the issue was, mostly because it was not consistent, some days everything was great but other times it was like Mackie had two left front feet. I can't describe it any other way, he stumbled quite a bit, I know lots of horses stumble on occasion, but remember, I knew this horse, and this was not just a stumble. We had his farrier check him, we checked saddle fit, we looked at teeth, we had corrective shoeing done to help with breakover. The strange thing was it was not all the time, I lunged him and tried to see it, it was like he didn't know where to put his feet. Years earlier Dr. Cook gave me a book entitled Lameness in Horses, he has since lived to regret that....I read that book everyday, and when it got to where I felt we needed Dr. Cooks expertise, I called him and said "can you come and look at Mackie? I think he has navicular" Talk soon, Love Donna Lee
