How We Met

Mackie came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent almost 4 years with a horse that was all wrong for me. Mackie was such a willing partner, he made having a horse such a treat. He tried to please no matter what you asked of him. Knowing what I know now, I realize that life was really tough for Mackie. He had many health issues, everything from mild colic to choke, to allergic reaction to a vaccine and then a reaction to the antibiotic. His biggest challenge was getting and surviving EPM not once but twice. As a result of the EPM meds he developed gastric ulcers, it just went on and on. Thru all of this Mackie never once complained. It looked like we were finally on our way to enjoying ourselves, when his behavior changed, nothing drastic, just a little off. After a consultation with our Vet, an appointment was made at the University Equine Hospital for Mackie to see a cardiologist. The night before our appointment I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers, in my heart I knew it was not good, but I had hope because after all, these people were specialists. It was a very long day, filled with tons of tests and information overload. When all the info had been gathered, we sat down and they explained to me that he was in heart failure, only one of his four heart valves was functioning. They felt that this condition had been present for years, they said for me not to beat myself up, it was NOT something that either Dr. Cook or I had missed. Typically horses don't show symptoms because they keep trying, they said Mackie never gave up, his heart did.. His prognosis was poor to hopeless, I had 3 options, 1. leave him at the hospital and treat, however, they told me that they did not recommend treatment, even if it did help, it would be short lived. 2. take him home to die, but it would not be a peaceful death. 3. I could let him go now. I choose to let him go, I stayed with him, at his side the whole time, it was important to me that my face and my voice be the last he saw and heard. I held him and told him how much he was loved, I came home alone that day. He was only 12. I donated his body to the University Hospital, I got great comfort from knowing that his heart might help someone else's horse. I miss him everyday. Love you Mackie. We will meet again.

Hi, left a vote. Just got back from the clinic. It was 30 this morning, and really foggy. So cold out, not good when you are fighting a cold. Fog is finally now burning off.

The clinic was great. We were the only ones there this morning, so we got nearly 4 hours of one on one time! We needed it! LOL Looking forward to working on all that we learned from this clinic.

I want to thank you all for your support of Zip for his hotm run. Not sure if we will get it, but we made some new friends along the way. Thank you all!

Raining. It's suppose to rain through Saturday. Got a lot done on the shed, but the sides haven't been put on it. Still need shingles, too. Had Austin pick up a tarp in town and covered the floor of it, and Rick and I put the sides in his metal container. Should be able to get it finished weekend after this one. Did get the yard light replaced. So nice to have it working, again! Have an amazing weekend. Stay safe and warm. Love and a vote.

Hi, left a vote. Did our homework again today, he is getting pretty good with it now. We are moving the hindquarters, forequarters, flexing, backing, all in stage one. We will be learning stage 2 this weekend. I introduced him to the mounting block today. Didn't bother him. I got on the high step, making noise, flapping my arms about, he was looking at me like I had lost my mind! LOL! Maybe I have Zip! LOL!

Hi, left a vote. Did our homework again today, he did great. I put a lightweight saddle on him, then did the homework again, then lunged him lightly. He just didn't care about that saddle! I hope we keep this trend going! LOL!

HI, left a vote. Zip and I did our homework again today, he was much better today, saw lots of improvement! I also grabbed a bareback pad and put that on him, he didn't care at all even when I cinched it up. Then I lunged him just a bit with it on, he did great! May try a light weight western saddle on him sometime this week. Also feel like I am coming down with another cold!

A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE...
It was an absolutely fabulous service. We were late starting because they had trouble getting everyone into the funeral home. Jackie's bell ringers, rang us(the family) to our seats, it was beautiful. some of Jackie's favorite music was played while they tried to get everyone seated. 3 different ministers briefly spoke and we prayed.. Jackie's son in law gave a wonderful speech, we all laughed right out loud, we all cried a bit and then 2 of her grandchildren spoke, they were just amazing, what nice kids. Adam played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes, so lovely. The bell ringers rang us all out and we went for lunch at a hall, it was a huge group of people all for Jackie, it was wonderful to see all her nieces and nephews there, Trevor came with some of the boys from London, one of the nieces came from BC and some cousins came from Scotland and North Carolina and California. There is a huge hole in that community and in the hearts of us who loved her, she is safe now, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi, left a vote. Zip and I had fun at the clinic today! He did great!!! Everyone thought he was super cute, and they all wanted to trade their horses for Zip! LOL There was only 3 of us in the clinic, so it was great to be able to get some one on one time with the clinician!

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Today will be the tough one, Jackie's grandson Adam wants to play his bagpipes at the service, Amazing Grace, she was so proud of her family. Jackie was in a Bell Ringer group and they want to do something at the service as well, she was a very active member of her community and visitation was wonderful, people were lined up outside the building to get in to see her family, I'm going to need lots of tissues today....she will be missed, We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi, left a vote. Zip got so much needed arena time today. He rolled several times and ran around. I then played a bit with a plastic bag. Tied a plastic bag to the end of a long lunge whip, and then shook it all over. He didn't care. Then I dragged it on the ground, and he was following it all over the arena! Too funny! He is all ready for the clinic tomorrow!

So sorry about Jackie. Prayers for you and your family.

SAD NEWS TO SHARE....
David's sister, Jackie has lost her battle with cancer. She was a 5 year breast cancer survivor and this dreadful disease returned this fall, after lots of tests etc. it was determined to be in her liver, gall bladder and ovaries it was inoperable, in early December they gave her 3-6 months, she died on Sunday afternoon, with her family close by. Jackie spent her entire life giving to others, we called her Saint Jackie, she will be missed. Love Donna Lee

I want a good pair of western riding boots. I'll live in them. Lol. I'm not sure when Rick will get the shed up. With the Super Bowl, and the upcoming events, he has to work overtime. He works at a grocery warehouse. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, any day that includes food and alcohol, means no days off. He does have Friday, but says he's not doing anything. Understandable, but hard to wait. Austin and I went out to checkout the spot where I want it. Need to level the ground, Getting a good shovel this weekend, so I can start on it. Seems to take me forever to get something done. Ready to get in gear and take a picture of it......And thanks for the birthday wishes. Love and a vote.

HI, left a vote. Bonnie hauled Zip for me today. He got right into that trailer! He had to stand in it for half an hour when we got to Sue's barn, I had to get his stall all set up. Anyway, he was so quiet the whole time. Sue didn't even know he was in the trailer! She came up to me, "Where is Zip"?, "in the trailer", "he is"?, "yes"! LOL He settled right in. So very proud of him, he just took it all in stride, like he has done it before! LOL!

I worked from 2 to close, Tuesday, but still had a nice birthday. Got a $20 tip. I told Rick I wanted money for boots. He said he wasn't giving me that much. Said he'd help put the shed up. That works. Austin works on the days I don't, so it's been hard to work on it. With the Super Bowl coming here, Rick's working overtime. Going to be crazy here. The traffic's going to be ridiculous. Thankful I won't be stuck in it. Love always and a vote. <3
