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.

Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.

I'm hoping to talk to our Dr. C today, Charlie is OK as long as he is on the high dose of ulcer meds, I'm making small changes in his feed program, adding thing to help with is hind gut digestion and taking away grains which I have learned are very hard on their tummy's. Marion has been a huge support, when i feel like I'm loosing it, she picks me back up. I can't explain how this is a constant worry, I just want him well again. Marion also suggested that the stall kicking may be a symptom of the ulcers? could be...Love Donna Lee

Thank you for the get well wishes. I never get sick, but when I do, blech. Lol. Hoping everyone who's under the weather, is feeling better, soon, too...... I did manager a short ride on Sadie, Wednesday. What an amazing feeling to be in the saddle! I forgot about being sick. A friend, who's an experienced rider, came out and rode her, too. I said professional rider, on facebook, because if you have a horse, everyone wants to bring their kids out to ride. Sadie needs work. Not risking accidents.... Stephanie rode Sadie out front. She was amazing. She trotted, cantered and was so good, until she got spooked. She was nervy, possibly coyotes. There's a large den nearby. She bucked hard, and Stephanie hit the ground. She said she was fine, got back on and rode her for a few minutes more. She said she and Sadie need to get to know one another. I'm thinking that's true. Sadie's good with me, but she loves me. She'd better. Lol. Leaving love and a vote.
