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.

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

With proper management, Dave rebounded from his PSSM episode and thrives on his low carbohydrate high fat diet along with a consistent exercise plan.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.....
Good Morning all, I managed to get thru the first week after vacation. The weather was just stupid this week, cold mornings, warm afternoons, HOT late afternoons and 3 days of showers in the late afternoon. I said before this full time job is gettin' in my way of fun time. No ride this week, and had to be careful of the rich grass because of the humid and wet conditions. We will have a ride this morning before it gets hot. Then maybe run the vacuum over and sit is the sun with a book, eh, sounds good to me. We voted today, Love Donna Lee

I persisted though because I knew my horse. Finally Dave reached the point where he was sore to the touch. He'd pin his ears as I approached him & even threatened to bite. That was not my horse, the one who's usually up for anything, Mr. Optimistic.

Before i offically took him home i started to notice physical and emotional changes in Dave. Vets,horse trainers, my parents, friends nobody believed me. Multiple vets cheched him,but none of them ever made any progress in a diagnosis.

I started leasing this goofball and went back to the basics. like walking (Because he didn't aacknowledge the "walk" as a gait.) Anyway, after i had been leasing him for a few months and taking the pattern slow, I finally got to call him my own. Now, here's where the journey with Dave really begins.

Storm hit hard about 11pm Sunday night. Heavy rain, thunder and multiple lightning. Beautiful! Our power was out for about 2 hours. Praising sweet Jesus that it's now on. Corral's a mucky mess. I let sassy butt out. She's free to plunder and get into things that are none of her business. She should be one happy butt for the next couple of days. Lol. Our water pressure's fixed, too. God is so good! Love and a vote.
