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.

GOOD MORNING, LEFT A VOTE
Just a quick note to let ya'll know we are still here, I just can't take the slowness and the pop ups. We are in the count down to retirement, 6 weeks to go. It has been nuts at work, due to the extreme heat this summer, we are starting at 5AM, because I do the morning set up for our department, I start at 4AM. Really, who gets up at 1:45??? my choice, I like to feed the horses and make sure they are OK before I start my day. I'm working on a "to do" list for when I'm done working, so far I've got riding, reading, relaxing, sounds good to me. Charlie and Sterly are doing good. Love to all, Donna Lee

Come visit me, Sterl May, Angel Sassy Mac Mar 8/95-Aug 8/07 & Royal Mes.

Windy with low, dark clouds. Humid, too. No rain predicted. Would've been nice. Don't remember the last time it rained. I splashed water on Sadie's butt, to cool her down. Looking forward to the Fall. Love and a vote.

The wind was hot, Saturday night, but Sadie's good. She's drinking a lot of water, too.....A lot of hours at work and now, too little. Would be awesome to have 24 hours a week. Business is a lot slower during the summertime. Will pick up in the Fall. I have 4 days off this week. Going to Bible study with Austin, Tuesday night. Looking forward to it. Leaving love and a vote. <3

Thank you!
Yes I still have both Sassy and Tesla they are an extremely bonded pair that can't be out of earshot from one another. Lol they are great for trail riding though. My girls definitely keep me busy but I love them both so much. They are both such beautiful spirits. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Left a vote.

Time is so precious. My mom use to say when you hit your 20's, time starts to fly by. I'm not sure when that happened with me, but once it did, it did. My day off, Wednesday, disappeared in a hurry. I think everyone's days off do. I'll be 60 in January. Getting old too fast. Lol. Leaving love to each of you and a vote.
