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.

HI, left a vote. So sorry I haven't been on, I have had no computer, finally got a loaner one.

My new grand daughter Kensi is doing great! I got to see and spend time with her on Tuesday.

It has been in the ninety's here all week! Ugh, I hate it when it is that hot, I just don't tolerate it well at all.

Farrier came out today, and did something a little different this time. Amber's left front is awful. Have been trying to get it to turn around for awhile now. Good news is that it is starting too, but still have a long way to go. The right front was bad, but now it is starting to widen just a bit. So in an effort to help her out, epoxy was put in both front hooves today. Hoping that it will lift the left and widen the right. Amber was great for the whole thing. After the hoof was cleaned out and trimmed, she then scrubbed it, it was super clean. Then she put alcohol on it, then used a blow dryer, then put the epoxy in it, wrapped it with a plastic bag, taped it and waited for it to cure. She wasn't sure about the blow drying part of it, but she handled it like a pro! It will just fall out when the hoof is done with it. It will be interesting to see how this will work. I will keep all of you updated.

Come visit me, Toby & Amber.

Had an amazing afternoon Wednesday. Friends, Grace and Toby and their 3 kids, who moved to Arkansas 3 years ago, because Toby got stationed at Little Rock Air Force Base, came out. They just spent their vacation here with Toby's parents. Sadie gave everyone rides. First, Tyler, who is 7, rode Sadie bareback with no bridle. We put the saddle and bridle on. Everyone took a turn riding. Short rides because it was 108*. Grace and Toby took lots of pictures. They all had a wonderful time. So did I. Sadie was amazing. Such a good girl. She behaved herself. No attitude like she sometimes has with new people. So dang proud of her! Thinking of you all and leaving a vote.

I had to stop by the store, after work and buy another fly mask. Sassy Miss Sadie is rough on them. I don't like having to keep her beautiful face covered, but the flies here are bad. Got to keep her pretty eyes protected. Aren't horses some of the most gorgeous creatures? Love and a vote.

Remember about my luck...well, we just got all tacked up ant started out to the ring, and yup, you guessed it, rain, what gives, it was just spitting, so we stayed out for half an hour anyway. The rest of the day was off and on drizzle. That is not what the the weatherman said. David made the letters out of feed tub lids and screwed them on to stakes, I'll tell him you all think it looks good. Charlie and I started dressage a couple of summers ago, remember I didn't ride last summer due to my arm, hope we have a good season this year. I can't afford a lesson every week, so I bought some MP3 download lessons from Jane Savoie's website, they are super. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee
