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.

ALL IS WELL....
Good Morning, everything is good here. Sterly seems to be hanging in, altho she is slowing down and she is weak in her hind end, but she is still eating and drinking so we carry on...
I'm going to ride Joey again tomorrow and I still have Bachelor #4 to try out, hopefully soon, his pics are below, on Sterl's page, and remember he is a Standie, so he already has my heart...lol. Have a great day.

ME ON A HACK....
Seriously, yesterday was my second ride with Daisy, the farm where she boards has all kids of property for riding, you can ride in the grass ring, they have western stuff, like barrels, poles they have some cavaletti & jumps, there is some event things like brush, logs, ditch or you can ride all around the property on a groomed track (grass & dirt)as in picture 1 below. Most of you know that I was only ever on ONE trail ride and it ended in disaster...Daisy seems be to very comfortable and she knows her horses and she asked if I would like to venture out of the ring, so off we went, OMG, it was great, we rode for 1 1/2 hours and I loved it. I still plan to ride Gig when he gets back home, but I think I have found a situation that works for me. Have a great day, ttyl

Joey was great fun...
Well, I liked him so much, I'm going to go ride him again tomorrow. It is only about 15 minutes from home, bonus...
Daisy bought him pretty much site unseen, she saw a pic of his hind end and when she contacted the owner, they said, come and meet him...she did and she offered what money she had in her pocket and she took him home, he is apparently registered, but Daisy did not get his papers, his registered name is Mystic Moon Dancer, she thinks he is TWH/Paint or maybe Arab, look at his head? or something that is slightly gaited. He did trot, but even his walk is elongated almost a swagger lol, if anyone has any idea, I'd love to find out what his breeding is? At any rate, he is a nice boy and he is Bay...have a great day.

Bachelor #3, Good Boy
Good Morning, I posted a pic of Joey, on Sterl & Blossom's page, that is me in case you couldn't tell from the huge smile on my face. He was wonderful. That is his Mom, Daisy with us. It was a great day and a fun ride, I think Joey will be lots of fun. I still want to meet Gigolo when he gets home from summer pasture in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime, I'm sure it will be fun to ride with Daisy and Ollie, her horse a couple times a week, sooo good to be back in the saddle. Have a great day.

Bachelor #3 today
Off this morning to ride #3, he is suppose to be a well trained, "anyone can ride" TWH/Paint, he is a solid Bay, yeah, and right now very overweight due to lack of riding. His Mom bought him originally for her son, who has decided he likes dirt bikes better. She would like a riding friend, she has another horse that she rides, so, off I go, stay tuned, have a great weekend.

Morning, so, #1 and 2 are out of running, I am going to ride #3 tomorrow, and just because I'm not confused enough, there has been a 4th added. Pictures below. On Sterl's page. The young lady that offered up Blossom when Charlie died, has 3 horses, two green ones that she will be busy with this summer, plus one Standardbred, I know I can hardly believe my luck, we all know how I feel about Standie's...his name is Gigolo Killean and she calls him Gig, he is 21 and trained, trained, trained, she will be happy to have me ride him this summer, and the best part they are boarded about 10 minutes from home, Woo Hoo. Stayed tuned for results. I think I may have found a ride...have a great day.

Morning guys, so Eddie is out, after two rides, there seemed to be NO CONNECTION, there was no spark, there was no urge to hug him or love up to him, I admit he did not appeal to me in appearance, he seemed to be a pretty good ride, altho, very high headed and choppy. The arena was a big plus, but I can't base a decision on an arena...still going out to ride Joey, his pic is below. And the young lady that "loaned" us Blossom has generously offered me a free lease of her Standardbred, ya all know how I feel about Standie's, woo hoo. This might be the one. Stay tuned, have a great day.

Thank you all for the support. Still trying to process the fact that my cousin has died. He's a big part of my childhood memories and is forever in my heart. No greater friends than HC friends. Sadie's good. She was so full of spit and vinegar the other night. She's forever in my heart, too. My car's ac is awesome. If my dash lights worked, I'd feel rich. Lol. Probably a short in the wiring. Love to all of you and a vote.

I've got so much going on, it's not easy to be on HC everyday. My cousin died Sunday morning. Still too much to process. Not going, because the service is in S.C and the burial in Georgia. I did send flowers to the funeral home, then called to make sure they got there. Been in touch with my aunt and brother. My car is in the shop. Should be ready Thursday. Hot weather is on it's way and that ac is gold. Love and votes. Prayers, too.
