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.

ANOTHER FARM UNDER QUARANTINE...
Wow, this not good, I did see that there is bird flu in several US states, this affects import and export. We have a chicken farm added to the list here. We are working 4 days a week for the next 6, hopefully things will be under control then, Looks like lots of PB & J and soup for us... Love Donna Lee

Glad Charlie is doing well. Feels good to be able to get everything cleaned up. Looks so clean and new. We are still having high winds. Got to ride Sat. all of a sudden we had 45 mph winds. Jax did really well. He had more trouble with the limb on the ground then the wind itself. Our ground is still soft. We could only ride around the perimeter. Vicki & Big Jax

The new farrier came out Friday. Sadie's hooves look amazing. He said they look healthy. So thankful. I still haven't heard from the other farrier. I'm hoping nothing bad happened to him. Not like him to not show up or answer his phone or text messages. Love and a vote.

ALL IS WELL....
I had a great day yesterday, got lots done outside, the paddocks are all clean. All of the old hay from winter is cleaned up and taken away, no poop laying around. We are going to reseed the one paddock but i can't do that until it is a bit dryer and not as windy. I even had time for a short ride. Charlie seems to be adjusting to the change in weather well, and his new diet is a hit, he loves his bucket. They will both gets teeth and shots in the next few weeks and Charlies's shoes go back on, have a great day, Love and a vote Donna Lee

Good morning We are having a beautiful day. Jax got his teeth done yesterday. Plan on going out and brushing him. He rolled and he looks like pig pen LOL. Should have named him that. So hard to keep white white. :) If it is as warm as they say, maybe a bath. Just don't want to do it too early, our nights are still cool. Have a great Sat. Hope you get to ride. Vicki & Big Jax

NO NEW CASES OF BIRD FLU...
It looks like the quarantine is working, there have been no new cases reported, we had a really short week, about 25 hours, it did give me lots of time to get stuff done outside, however not good for the old pay cheque... it will be a few weeks like this, the quarantines can not be lifted until the farms test negative for 21 consecutive days. It is what it is, we will survive, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Start spring clean up...
Good morning, it is suppose to be a nice day, I got most of the inside work done yesterday so I can "work/play" outside today, I hate the look of all the old hay laying around from over winter, I will start to pick away at cleaning up the paddock areas. I am going to toss out some grass seed too. The bird "flu" will most definitely affect my work, a lot of these birds that are being destroyed were scheduled for processing at our plant, so as the quarantines are added, until they are lifted we won't be processing, right now we are killing birds that are not under quarantine, this will be a lengthy process. I'm just hoping we have it contained. Have a great day, left a vote, Love Donna Lee

H5 Avian Influenza
It has been a very tough week, my heart aches for the loss of birds. I understand that this must be contained.We are following very strict biosecurity measures at the plant and of course the farms that are still operating. We process birds from all over Ontario. Several in our area are under quarantine, which can not be lifted until the farm tests negative for 21 consecutive days. So clearly this is going to have an impact on my work. We are still operating, but as the birds become less and less we will have some down days for sure. Several countries have ban import of Canadian poultry in the meantime. They believe this is a result of migrating wild bird and some how a barn became contaminated, however it spreads like wildfire. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Well Zip finished his first week of school. He did great, so very proud of him. As a reward for his great first week, he got to be turned out today! He was happy! I think she plans to get on him next week, not sure, but I think so. My wrist is still really bothering me, so I plan on staying off everything and resting it this weekend. So, have a great weekend everyone, I will be back on Monday.

Come visit me, Toby, Zip N Fire & Amber.
