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.

WHAT A NICE SUPRISE!
Wow i didn't expect this, but it's great. Thank you all for voting my sweet Darby for HOTD. So here's an update: I rode a while ago, but about a few week ago i gave him a good groom and got all the mud off him from the big rains. It lightly snowed about 2 weeks ago, pretty neat. It's more on the cold side today, i'll be sure to give Darbs a treat today. But i hope to ride very soon, even if it's just bareback atleast it's something. Had to put his blanket on a handfull of times the past couple of months, but in the morning he always runs around and bucks, it;s a nice show. He's really growing his winter coat it aswell, i hope you and your horses have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving! Love Always

Hi, left a vote. Zip got a bath today, he did pretty good. Took him forever to dry. Then he got to wear his new blanket! The barn was very busy today, no school all week! Lots of kids out at the barn, probably be like that all week! Hard to do stuff when it is that busy, a reason I don't go out on the weekends.

Rode Cisco for the first time in his rhythm beads- he was really uptight at first, but did lots of groundwork - it's been over a week since he's been worked. It took over an hour to groom him just enough that I could get the tack on - LOL, major Mudstang! He settled after a few minutes, and we just worked some patterns. It was nice to ride to the tinkling of the bells!

I'M FRUSTRATED, GRRR
I should have the blood work back today, as far as the nutritionist. She is reluctant to make a change in feed for and ulcer he "may" or "may not" have. She can't get her head around an impaction colic, to her that means lack of moisture, so #1 should be let's get him drinking more water...Charlie is a good drinker. She says the only way to know for sure if he has an ulcer is to scope, I said Dr. C is treating on clinical signs, he knows this horse. She said he has adequate fat and fibre with his present ration, keep up with the alfalfa hay and add corn or vegetable oil to his feed. Not much help there....we lft a vote, Love Donna Lee

CAN'T BELIEVE THIS WEATHER...
I'm off work today, our plant is having some major maintenance done,this works out for me except for the lack of $$$. Dr. Cook is coming to pull a blood on Charlie, hope it shows the inflammation is gone...the nutritionist is coming over after lunch to discuss his feed program. He has been on the maintenance dose of his ulcer meds since Monday and so far so good. Yesterday was so miserable they had to stay in again, I think they can get out for a bit today. Just because I don't talk about her, Sterly is doing great...She loves winter. We left a long weekend vote, 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!
