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.

So sorry I haven't been on. HC was down, then I had long shifts at work, making it impossible to vote. The wind was so hot when I got off work, Sunday night, my eyes burned. I came home, watered some of my trees, filled Sadie's water and splashed her butt with the hose. I got a dirty look, lol. What a brat. She's doing well, drinking lots of water. Thankful the heat doesn't seem to bother her. I started her on psyllium pellets, again. I mixed them with carrots and apples. She'd eat them without a treat, but I love to spoil her. And yes, I pay for it. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hi Angel Mackie, here's a heavenly vote for ya buddy. Love ya, Angel H.T. here's a vote for ya. Well rainy day! So did all my food shopping for the horse show and packed most of it in the trailer already. Then took Honey down the indoor for her lesson. Well there was a bird locked in overnight, and it was frantic! Honey didn't know what to make of it! Now she sees birds all the time outside, but not in her playpen! She wouldn't run and play, glued herself to my side! Just lunged Paige and practiced more of our showmanship patterns. Then groomed Indy real good. Trimmed up Bullseye hooves again, just needed a little touch up on his angles. By then it was almost 5 pm, late flake of hay and fresh water for lunch and then my lunch. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Not looking forward to the predicted 120* on Sunday, and it's not even summertime, yet. It's usually hotter here than in Phoenix. Keeping Sadie's water filled, as usual. She knows how to wet herself down when the temperature's from Hell hit. We have beautiful winters that make up for it. Lots of love and a vote.

Wow, yesterday was the hottest so far, we had a wild wind with it so it was deceiving. My Sterly had a bit of heat stress by the time they came in for dinner. I sponged her with cool water and put her big fan on her all night. She had a bit of muscle twitching but she was e, d, p, p, so I figured she was OK. She is such a tough old girl. This morning and today much cooler and yes, she was fine at breakfast. Love that girl, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Scruffy's doing great. He was so good at the Vet's. Had to say hello to everyone there. The vet's assistant was surprised when I told her his 10th birthday is in August. She thought he was 2. She said he's in great shape. He's an over aged puppy. Lol. Sadie 's pretty, nosy butt's doing well, too.... Busy work weekend, again. Longer hours next weekend. Will vote when I can. Love you all and a vote.

Lol, cooling down to 111*, today. Bought a small tarp to put on one of the walls of Sadie's shade to block some of the hot sun, until I can get some more material to finish it. Trying to figure out how to put it up and hoping she won't rip it down. Lots of love and a vote.

GOOD MORNING, LEFT A VOTE
It was a week of ups and downs...one of our co-workers, 57 years old. was diagnosed about a month ago with stage 4 cancer pretty much everywhere, literally at work one day and in hospital the next making plans to die, she had some surgery and one treatment, she died peacefully on Tuesday evening, she has worked at our plant for over 30 years, we are all still in shock. On a good note one of our co workers retired on Thursday, he worked in my department for 25 years, we had a little celebration, cake, gift, balloons, tears, hugs, it was nice. David and I brought Lydia home yesterday and buried her in a special spot in our yard, we planted a Forsythia to mark her. It was very emotional for us both, she was such a special little cat, but she os home now and I'm at peace with that. Have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

Not looking forward to the heat, this weekend. It's predicted to be 115* on Saturday, now. It's not considered hot, here, until it gets over 105*. I think it's hot before, then. Staying as cool as possible. Love and a vote.
