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.

The flies are ridiculous. Making homemade fly traps out of 2 liter plastic bottles. Using can dog food as bait. Should work, because Scruffy has to fight the flies to eat. Love and a vote.

PS: Amanda attended a charity luncheon Friday (for Ca patients) and received an invitation to take part in a major celebrity cutting event on Dec 5th in Ft Worth. She will be working with a major cutting horse trainer and riding one of the top cutting horses in the nation. Hubby Steve is just slightly green with envy!

Hi, Mackie. Very, very tired (and a bit sore)today. All 3 got a good grooming and fly stuff on, Nugget was very, very good about picking up her feet. Need to finish unpacking the trailer and get it cleaned out, then I'm pretty much done for the day.

LEFT A VOTE, THANKS FOR YOURS
We had a great day as HOTD, thanks for all the votes and visits. We are looking forward to another nice fall day today. The leaves are so beautiful, the colors are amazing this year, we are pretty much surrounded by woods so it is very pretty here. Just a quick update on Trev, he has decided that he is ready for work again. He started a new job last week, he likes it. It is an adjustment for sure. The only problem we see is transportation, he is riding his bike (he doesn't drive) in the AM, he starts at 7, it is an hour bike ride, the bus service doesn't go that far that early, however he can bus home at night, the city buses have bike racks. He is hoping to meet someone at work that he can catch a ride with, maybe someone close to his area. We really hope so, this travel arrangement will not work in winter...Have a great day, Love Donna Lee

My yard light went out during the last storm. I had it put up, a few years ago, so Sadie's corral would stay lit up at night. I ordered a replacement bulb, because I couldn't find one. Hope that's all I need. I still go out to check on Sadie. Can't see if there are snakes or scorpions. She's worth the risk. Love and a vote.

I put Sadie's fly spray in a different bottle, because the original bottle broke. For some reason, she didn't mind being sprayed. It's smells strong. hoping it'll last on her through tomorrow. Lots of love always and a vote.

Vet OK pecans -shelled, of course, (in moderation) - a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Pleased with everyone's weight, although Cisco still needs to lose some. I have been able to take his girth up a notch.

WONDERFUL VISIT...
It was a very emotional visit, Mr. Butler had not seen Charlie in 6 years and he was clearly choked up about it. He said Charlie was always his favorite horse and all he wanted for him was that he go to a loving home, he said, he has that here with you, thank you for taking such good care of him. It was wonderful, love Donna Lee & Charlie

CHARLIE IS A STAR.....
Good morning, I worked 5 hours of OT yesterday. I feel like this cold is coming back, it has settled on my chest, I'm actually barking...today my Charlie will be the *STAR* the man I bought him from 6 years ago is going to come over for a visit. He loved Charlie as much as me, and when I bought him, he said, "I know Charlie is going to a home where he will be loved, that is all I want for him" I got him all buffed up last night, what do you bet he rolls in the mud before he gets here....Love that horse, have a great day, Love & votes Donna Lee

Pyranha Spray and Wipe is great, but Sadie doesn't like it. She always stands still when I spray her down but not with this stuff. I have to follow her around and spray when I can. I accidentally spilled some on my hand. The spray nozzle broke when it fell off the top of my dryer. Took about 7 hand washings, a shower and shampooing my hair to get most of it washed off. Using a glove next time. Love and a vote.
