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.

LONG WEEKEND, YEAH...
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Picked up the last of my things at the old barn today, and said my goodbyes. It was bittersweet. Amber and I accomplished some "firsts" there that I will never forget.

The new barn is great. The arena is one of those coverall ones. Love the natural light, but man, it is 15 degrees hotter in there than it is outside. Great for winter, but not the summer! LOL! I have to get up early and get out there to ride, or I just wilt with the heat and humidity. It is like a greenhouse, or even a sauna.

Farrier was out today. The epoxy fell out a couple of days ago, and she was very pleased with the results. She got a trim today, then in 4 weeks, she will be back out, if they are still good, just another trim, and wait for the rain to do another epoxy treatment.

Off to bed, early to rise, so I can get a ride in!

Come visit me, Toby & Amber.

Yesterday was a better breathing day for my Sterly Girly. She has had this issue forever, actually she got a lung virus as a two year old when she raced. It was bad enough to end her racing career, she was pretty good, from a very good bloodline. But as Dr. Cook said it was never going to be a problem for what I wanted her to do. As a younger girl, she was a bit "weazy", but as a "old girl" it is down right difficult to breath, as always, she never complains. I swear if all horses were like her, everyone would have a horse.

The weather is nice, The rain here has dried up. Bugs are crazy, though. Put ant bait around the outside of Sadie's corral and put her nosy, into everything butt, back in. She's a busy one. She got into the other shed and drug out the containers Austin put in there. He took them out of the tack shed to make room to store hay. She watches everything and waits for a chance to plunder. Lots of love and a vote.

SOAKED SUPERVISORS IN ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE
Good morning my friends, all is well here in hot, humid Ontario. This is pretty much the worst couple of weeks of the summer, it is OK for me, but poor Sterly Girly has such a hard time breathing, inside with her fan and I actually gave her a couple pumps of Ventipulimin yesterday. My last week of vacation is in September, we love early fall. Much nicer for riding. Have a great weekend, we left a vote. Love Donna Lee

Because of the flooding north of us, the river, close to my house, flooded, Tuesday night. I didn't see the water until I accidentally drove through it. Car's been fine until I drove to work, Friday. After I parked the car and went in, the car caught fire and is totalled. Devastated, heartbroken, but okay. A couple of people think it may have been a short in the wiring. Thank God that Austin was able to pick me up. Car's still in the parking lot at work. Rick won't get home until Wednesday. He's on vacation. Sending love as always and a vote. p.s. No word on the horses that were washed away in the flood.

We've had a lot of rain and flooding here in Arizona. We're okay here, but some towns, north of Phoenix, weren't so lucky. New River, Arizona, was hit so hard, pets and horses were washed away. I saw, on the news, that 2 of the horses drowned and women on horseback were searching for the other 2. I haven't heard if they were found, yet. So heartbreaking. Sadie's fine. We've had rain, hard Thursday morning, but no flooding at my house. Sadie's out of her corral, because it's slippery and mucky. To know Sadie, is to know she's happy. She was at the backdoor begging for carrots. Of course, she got some. Hope you're all doing well. Leaving love and a vote.

Everet Shaw, who rode his share of great steer roping horses, told Hyde
that Blue was the best horse at Cheyenne that year. Hyde and Del both felt
that Blue started out of the box quicker and could catch cattle easier than
any horse they had ridden. The combination of Blue's athletic ability and
Del's training made him hard to beat. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

This program
produced the stallion Gooseberry, Crow Creek (Lory's top calf horse), and
many good mares. Hyde and Dede then bought the other half interest in Blue
Valentine from Del. Hyde felt like it was a great privilege to rope steers
on Blue. In 1970 Hyde roped at his last Cheyenne Frontier Days on Blue. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**
