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.

Guess what - after over 24 hrs without any rain, we're getting pounded again. Not as bad as some, but pretty heavy downpour. Water is nearly to the top of the back porch (roof runoff, not creek), hoping the house doesn't flood.

Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone." Love and a vote.

Monday already...
Yesterday I had one of those "why do I even have a horse rides"
Charlie was just a pain, he was anticipating the canter and that was all he wanted to do, just would not listen, pulled thru my hands, head high, if anyone was watching(they weren't) they would have thought I have never ridden before in my life. I finally ended on a positive and said tomorrow is another day...Love Donna Lee

Quite day for me....
David is off today with our brother in law Bill (Jackie's husband) he has been keeping busy since Jackie's death. They are headed to a family reunion, I'm not going because it is quite a drive and it will be a long day, I don't want to leave the animals that long. We went about 5 years ago to a big reunion, we have lost several cousins since then, we are all getting old.... Have a great day, Love and a vote. Donna Lee

Holiday Monday, at least it is paid....
We went to a mortgage burning party yesterday. I'm not one for going out much, but this was a good time. It is a co worker, she is a year younger than me. They had a fish fry to celebrate paying off their house. It was mostly family and a few friends, like me and David. Tons of food and a beautiful sunny afternoon. Talk soon, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Angel Mackie is sending you all his love and thoughts Donna Lee ✞ my goodness, what a drive into work this morning…I got up at 4:30 am and by the time I left at 6 am we received 2” of rain already. It is to rain all day soooo guess you know what that means. Weather folks say to look at the bright side-we are no longer in a drought! Yesterday it was partly cloudy and some sun and the wind was blowing pretty good so I thought it was going to dry us some~NOT~ the herd enjoyed turn out and I had to fly spray them a little and they were happy. Happy trails and Have a wonderful day ♡
