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.

I WISH THE REAL SPRING WAS HERE...
I'm so tired of this crazy weather...Greg came by yesterday, we agreed to leave Charlie's shoes off until the mud dries up a bit, first we have to get to the mud, we are still frozen ground in the mornings. He looks good and Sterly did great, it is hard for her her to hold those "old" legs up, but she never complains, love that girl, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

I survived another long work weekend. A lot of customers with bad attitudes, and several servers were in tears from the stress. Not suppose to be that way. Still haven't finished the shed. Needs caulking and the shingles put on. Getting there. Got a doghouse to build, too. Sadie's good. Dewormed her this evening. Got to call the farrier. Have an amazing day, Tuesday. Hugs and a vote.

HI, left a vote. Not sure what I did to my right wrist, but I woke up with it 3 times bigger than my left one, and in a lot of pain. So, I am taking the weekend off from phones, computers, and horses to see if that will help. Have a great weekend everyone, I will be back on Monday!

Yay! I finally got new tires for my car. My old ones were so old, they were probably bought at Methuselah's yard sale. Lol. Methuselah lived to be 969 years old. He was the oldest living man. Anything bought from him would be ancient. Leaving love always and a vote.

What can I say, my work is wet and dirty....
Good Morning my friends, feeling better today, most of the swelling is down, I can see again. For some of our jobs safety glasses are required, however, I wear glasses anyway. This was just a freak accident, believe me this does not happen often, in 14 years it has never happened to me. We had trouble with this flock of birds, they were not taken off feed early enough, it was just a bad day. Yesterday was such a mixed bag, wind, rain, snow, ice pellets then believe it or not, SUN. I am soooo ready for some nice dry weather. Have a great day. we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

OMy Donna I don't even know what to say to all that. I can't even imagine. I hope you don't get any kind of infection from that!!! It would seem the mud and snow are the least of your worries right now. No spring here "snow". I think we both need a vacation to sun and sand. Vicki & Big Jax

HI, left a vote. My mom had to put her kitty down this morning. She called me just sobbing. Her Toby kitty was 5 years old, had a blood clot burst over his spine, there was nothing they could do for him.

One of my friends just lost their 8 day old colt. They fought so hard for him, thought he was going to make it, then he went down hill fast. Not sure yet, what was wrong with him.

This weekend isn't starting out very well at all.
