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.

Here in SW Ontario we went straight to January, skipped December all together...The guys couldn't go out yesterday, it was that BAD all day. The good news is Trevor found a fella from his new job that will give him a ride, you can't imagine how much better that makes us feel. Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Got a pic of Zip with his new halter on, and it is posted. I also made him speed/rhythm beads. He has that on in the pic too. He was great today. He didn't know what to think of the beads, he tried to eat them, then he shyed a bit from them, so I put them around my neck and lead him around. I would also shake them every once in awhile. Then, like a couple minutes later, I gave him a hug, then rubbed the beads on both sides of his neck. I then put the beads around his neck and walked and trotted him around. Didn't care about them at all. When we are finished, I had him in the cross ties, picking out his feet, and another boarder, Randy, had his mare cross tied right in front of Zip. Randy took the blanket of his mare and put it on top of a box right next to Zip, the blanket fell! Zips eyes got big, he pulled back just a bit, I grabbed his lead, and told him it was okay, and he looked at me, and relaxed. Whew! That could have been really bad. Really proud of him, he handled it well. Didn't get any Amber time today, so she will be up first tomorrow. I did however give her some love and treats!

MORE SNOW TODAY AND TOMORROW, GRRRR....
Good Morning, All is well, I am breathing again. Dr. Cook is very pleased with Charlie's progress, he stays on the high dose for a couple more days, then drop to 1/2 and observe closely. By then I should have some tips from the nutritionist. Our Marion has been very helpful with ideas, things that she has done in the past. I'm trying to find a supplier of a product that she uses for Paige. If it is available in Canada, I'll find it... Have a great day, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

CHARLIE IS BACK....
Good morning, it has been a week Friday since the colic. This morning I can report my good old boy is back....he is eating enthusiastically again and I'm so happy, thanks for the prayers. The nutritionist is coming out next week to discuss his diet in detail. We had enough snow yesterday that David had to use the snow blower to clear the driveway, this is just wrong, have I ever mentioned how much I hate winter? Have a great weekend, Love and a vote, Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Here is a little info on Zip's dam:

Zip is out of Arabian mare SK MissFyre a grand daughter of Gold N Ali out of a Gamaar/ Bask Dam.

I have been told his breeding is really good on both sides. Not that familiar with the Arabian lines, like I am with the Paint and QH lines.

He is very sweet and the calmest 2 yr. old I have ever met. He is so laid back, and he loves to be around people. I have done a lot of the obstacle stuff with him, and he just takes it all in stride.

I bought him a blue halter and lead today, and his own set of grooming brushes. I will get a pic him wearing the new halter soon.

The weather here is beautiful. 70's and 80's during the day, 50's overnight. Frustrated, because I've been so busy and haven't had time to ride. Not good for Sadie or me, even though she hasn't complained. Love and a vote. Have a beautiful weekend.

CHARLIE IMPROVES...
He is coming around bit by bit, a little more everyday. I talked to my hay man, he has some nice alflafa grass mix, I'm going to try a bale or two, plus the nutritionist is coming out on Friday next week. Thanks for the prayers, he is my sensitive boy, Love him, Love Donna Lee

Hi, left a vote. Got freezing rain overnight, so I am home today. Just found this out about Zip's sire:


Zip is a 2 year old palomino gelding sired by Stallion Flashy Vanilla Zipper a double Zippo Pine Bar Cremello stallion who was Sired by leading western pleasure sire Seven S FlashyZipper!

Pretty cool. I am wondering what shade of Palomino Zip will be. Right now, his legs are dark gold, but the rest of him is really light. Will be exciting to watch him grow and fill out.

HI, left a vote. I talked with Tasha today, she owns the barn and Zip. I am now am the proud owner of Zip! So excited. Oh my gosh, I can't believe I own two horses now. I posted 2 more pics, they are sideways for some reason, it won't change it. They are not sideways on my computer, so not sure why they loaded that way.

GASTRIC ULCERS?????
Dr. C took more blood, sent to the University for more accurate screening. He came back with VERY ELEVATED "SERUM ALBUMIN A" this is an indication of inflammation somewhere, he is leaning toward gastric ulcer, we will treat for that for a week and re test the blood profile, OH my, here we go...Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Finally got out to the horses! Amber was black and grimey. Had no choice, had to wash her. Didn't have my shampoo or her cooler. So she got rinsed off as good as possible, then had to wait it out, about 3 hours for her to dry, so I could put on her blanket. We have a very cold front coming in, so time to blanket! Didn't have time to work with Zip, but I did scratch him behind his ear and gave him some carrots.
