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.

After living in the desert for almost 30 years, it's safe to say that I've adjusted. Still not a fan of triple digit heat, though. It rained off and on Sunday. It was so nice. It can stop, now, Lol. Lots of love, always, and a vote.

Sissy and Scruffy's vet is a good one. Sissy's doing good. Hard to get her to eat. I'm thinking it's because of her surgery. I crush her medication in her food. She may taste it. Going to apply for her license next week. Because of my schedule this week, I won't get to ride Sassy Butt until next week. Love and a vote.

OLD GIRL GOING STRONG...
Sterls culture came back positive, she has vaginitis, 7 days of antibiotic and she will be good to go. Cookie wants to do a small procedure, I think Marion called it a Caslick, some stitches to tighten things up and hopefully reduce the chance of further infections. Love Donna Lee

When Austin took Sissy in, the vet didn't know, for some reason, that she was already spayed until she opened her up. She knocked off around $100, but with getting her microchipped, too, her surgery still cost over $300. Now, I have to get her licensed. She staying in the kitchen. I let her out to go potty and to allow my cats some time to escape my bedroom where they are kept most of the time. Leaving love, always, and a vote.

Busy day. Austin took Sissy in for spaying and found out that she's already spayed. He got her microchipped. We went bowling with friends. We all sucked, but it was fun. Long work week ahead. Austin and I are both working on Thanksgiving, him in the morning and me in the evening. Money for Christmas. Have a great Friday. Love and a vote.

HELLO TO ALL...
Have no fear, we are still here, we are all doing well. Charlie had a tough September, a couple of colic issues, we had a hot dry summer and a hot wet August and the grass may have been a bit much for him or he had a reaction to a weed. Not sure, doesn't matter, he is OK now, He is my VERY sensitive guy, Sterly is hanging in, her Cushings #'s were off this fall so we are adjusting her meds, she also may have a bladder infection, just waiting on the test results, but like always she has not complained, she is my "Steady Eddy" The past week has been perfect fall weather, I still hate it 'cause I know what comes next, grrrrr. Love to all, Donna Lee
