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.

Thursday was beautiful. Lots of mosquitoes. I put apple cider vinegar in Sadie's water daily. Seems to keep them away from her water. Looking forward to cooler, drier weather. Hugs and a vote.

Still working on getting the shed cleaned up. We went through it and saved most of the Christmas ornaments. Sadie had to go through them, too. She kept redumping them out. She found a big red bow she liked and dropped it in the mud. What a character. She's ate up with bug bites, Spraying doesn't really help. I feel so bad for her. Leaving a big hug and a vote.

We normally don't get much rain. We go for months without any. This summer has been anything but normal. The rain started Monday morning and hit us hard. We're okay, but the flooding in other places, did a lot of damage. Homes were flooded out, cars were buried up to their windows and the Interstate, 1-10, was flooded out and shut down in places. Never seen such a mess. Canals and sewers overflowed, too. A lot of people weren't able to make it to work and schools were closed. People were catching fish in the streets and in their yards. Leaving love and a vote. Thankful for God's hand of protection.

ONLY IN CANADA, EH...
We really have had some crazy weather this summer, I'm sure I mentioned it before, I know everyone is afraid of something, my thing is STORMS, can't explain it, it comes over me like a wave, terrible anxiety, uneasiness, I pace, I can't relax, once we had a tornado lock down at work, it was not a pretty site, everyone I work with is now aware of my phobia. Today is suppose to be nice, as long as we ride around the puddles we will be OK. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Good Morning, we were under a severe weather warning last night, it got a bit stupid, but nothing damaging, for sure cooled off, yesterday was the hottest day of the summer, so you know where my guys were, yup, inside with fans. Charlie had a case of hives, likely from an insect bite or a weed, couple doses of antihistamine and he is good as new. It is still raining now, but it is suppose to clear later this morning, here is a vote and a hope for a nice weekend. Love Donna Lee

Bad storm came through. Heavy rain and wind. Lost one of my sheds and a tree. What a mess. Power was out from 5:30pm until 1:40am. Sadie's fine. She's free until her corral dries up. Need to kiss the hay good bye, because it's suppose to storm all weekend. Got to buy a container for hay. Hope you're all well. Love and a vote.
