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.

Monitoring Scruffy. He hates the cone. Getting harder to trick him into taking his medication. Guess he's figured out it's hidden in his food. Sadie got out. Austin accidentally left the gate open. Had to go to a neighbor's, in the dark, to get her. She went to visit their horse. We got her home, safely. She was such a butt. She and the other horse whinnied back and forth. It was sad. They both are alone. I think Sadie's missing Scruffy now that he's staying inside. She's good, though, bad but good. Lol. Leaving more love and a vote.

My goodness. I need to make it on HC more often. Scruffy's doing better. I took him out, last night, to potty. Took the cone off and was surprised to see how much better he did without it. He walked some and wagged his tail. If I would live by his example, find time to wag my tail during rough spells, I'd be a better person. Animals are inspirational. Leaving lots of love and a vote. <3

Our dog, Scruffy, was attacked, late Sunday night, by one of the neighbors' dog. Possibly a pit mix. Scruffy got chewed up pretty bad. He's wearing the 'lampshade', has staples and is sedated. Can't get him to eat, drink or take his medication. The vet said he's not walking because of, either the surgery or the sedative shot they gave him. He ate some grilled chicken before we left for the vet. Hoping his appetite is back Tuesday. He's got a long way to go to heal. He's so sociable. He goes over to the egg ranch and shares the employees' lunches. He probably likes to hang out with the prisoners that work there, too. He gets out by climbing the fence, literally. or jumping it. I can't handle chaining him. Too heartbreaking. For now, he's in the house, and hopefully, after he heals, too. Been afraid he'd get ran over. The dog has disappeared. I haven't seen him since he attacked Scruffy. So aggressive. I'm taking care of the bill. He was out which makes it my responsibility. Don't think the neighbor has any money, anyway. His single wide is set up in a way that breaks permit laws, including being a single wide. Going to hush and leave lots of love and a vote.

last day of vacation...
It has been a swell time off, lots of rides, lots of reading lots of relaxing....I have a week off in June as well. I posted a new pic of my "old lady" and one of Charlie in his "oh so sheik spring, summer fly combat" ensemble....never met a horse that hates flies as much as Charlie, maybe when I'm home full time, I'll get him a fly sheet, I can't ask David to watch him all day, and I am nervous of sheet on in turnout...Love Donna Lee

Missing you..
Long weekend in Canada, just 'cause I don't leave a message everyday, we are still around, we check in every morning before work and see who is HOTD, mostly that bugs me, because someone that has not been active for like 580 days should not be HOTD. Anyway, HC is soooo slow and it is painful to try to blog to everyone, please know that I like to catch up on the news. Charlie and Sterly are both doing well, we have had some nice weather, so some nice rides, so looking forward to September 9th. last day of work. I will likely take a part time job, I have been offered one looking after a turkey brooder barn, I have not committed yet, but I'm leaning toward yes. Have a great weekend, Love to all, Donna Lee

Austin and I had a wonderful time, in Tucson, visiting with (Rick's) family and enjoyed his niece's graduation. Rick has issues, but his family is sweet and loving. Planning to go back down, after the summer heat goes away, and going to Tombstone with them. So looking forward to it. Hope you're all doing well. Love and a vote.

Sadie was a good girl, Thursday. She did give the farrier some attitude. He rubbed her neck and said she's a spoiled brat. She is. She took her shot without a problem and didn't fight the deworming. She's wearing her new fly mask, too. She and Austin played chase. She had that tail curled. Lol. So funny. Have a great weekend. I have extra hours this weekend, too. Will be on to vote, as much as possible. Love and a vote.

Trotting by with a Tuesday afternoon vote! We were able to bring our horse's out to our property Thursday-Saturday. We were going to Sunday but it was suppose to rain. Copper is totally amazing at loading now since we've been hauling them out to our land a lot so my sister and I can ride. I just walk in with him and he goes in then I go out the trap door and close the door behind him. Lindsay just sends Darbs in and he goes straight in, he absolutely LOVES COPPER! I have never seen a horse love another horse as much as he does, it's sweet. Love and a vote! ~Brooke and Copper~
