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.

vacation is over.....
I got 6 hours of OT yesterday, now I'm gearing up for back to work routine. My holidays are done for this year. I have to say this week off was wonderful, I pretty sure Charlie will be standing at the gate waving goodbye Monday morning. Sarah, she was the barn manager from the farm where I bought Charlie is coming out for a visit today. She has kept in touch and comes out once a year just to see him. Remember, he was the barn PET, EVERYBODY LOVED CHARLIE. We left a vote. Love Donna Lee

All is well with the world....
Sorry we have been missing for a few days, our computer has had some memory issues, bottom line, we need a new one, oh well get in line...Yes, Dr, Cook blames gas colic on the change in weather especially spring and fall, I'm thankful that she has always been an easy keeper, at least I know her so well, I recognize even the slightest bit off. Love that girl. Vacation has been super, I just could not ask for nicer days, lovely for riding, I have been taking it easy, no stress, lovin' it. I'm working Saturday 'cause it is OT, why not, left a vote, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. I came off of Amber last week. She did nothing wrong, it was all me. I just lost my balance, and off I came. Landed on my right hip and shoulder. I laid there in that dirt for probably 5 minutes. I thought I might have broken my hip, it hurt so bad. I was finally able to get to my feet and hobble over to the gate. I knew I hadn't broken it, but man, the pain was terrible. I did get back on and ride for a bit. Haven't been out to see Amber since. Just trying to heal up. Going out tomorrow to see her, I miss her so much.

Come visit me, Toby & Amber.

Sterly is feeling better, yeah....
I'm so lucky that I was home, I believe that because I caught this gas colic early she responded well to the meds. I can't even think about what would have happened if it had been a day when I had OT, David is pretty good but he is not as observant to small things like me. Sterly is so easy to read, she almost speaks... She seems back to her regular "don't worry about me" self today. Love Donna Lee
