Happy New Year
This is our story, the story of the The Old Lady and The "Outlaw":

I wish it wasn't so hot... I wish I had clean water... I wish someone would feed me, oh, I wish someone would get me out of here... I don't understand, what did I do? I remember good times, I remember being fed, and groomed and a pasture to run in and sweet grass to eat instead of being caged up. I remember running flat out with the wind in my mane, I REMEMBER BEING LOVED! I am so miserable, if only there were something to do besides watch the road. The other horses just stand there. Oh, Epona, help me!
I had just turned 60 (4 1/2 yrs ago) when I first saw Cisco...

Good Morning, we left a thank you vote. Dr. Cook left the next day for a veterinary conference in California, but he asked Dr. McGurrin to call him after seeing Mackie. I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers these people were the BEST of the BEST, surely they could help us. My friend, Jack trailered us and Mackie did super. We were met by Dr. McGurrin and her team. The first thing they did after taking a very complete history, was to attach probes and set up an ECG, as the printout started, Dr. McGurrin asked one of her team to tell her what it showed, he hesitated but finally said, "it shows that this horse is in heart failure". I felt my knees buckle, someone grabbed me and Dr. McGurrin handed me a box of tissue, she said, "you are going to hear lots of talk today, please try to be calm, when I have gathered all my information we will sit down and discuss it together" There were lots more tests. With all of the poking, probing and tests Mackie remained relaxed and calm. We took him back to a stall and went to discuss his case. Dr. McGurrin explained that typically horses do not show signs of heart condition, particularly racehorses, that is why you hear the horror stories about them dropping dead at the track. She felt in Mackie's case this was a very long standing problem, and eventually his heart just got to the point where it could no longer keep up. She wanted to assure me and of course, Dr. Cook that we did not miss anything, they just don't give any indication until it is often too late. She said sometimes drugs help, but in Mackie's advanced case she did not recommend it. I asked if she was prepared to help us that day, she said yes, I agreed to let him go as long as she allowed me to stay with him. She asked if I needed a bit of time with him first, when we were alone I explained to him that it was time, that I would be there and to please trust me one last time. I held him, I stroked his neck and told him how very loved he was, my face and my voice where the last he saw and heard. Sure ruined my make up that day, the ride home was terrible, Jack kept saying "let it out kid" I did...Dr. Cook was on the answering machine when I got home telling me how sorry he was and that he was glad Jack was with me, I did the right thing. Dr. MGurrin sent me a copy of the autopsy along with Mackie's halter a lovely braid of his tail and a plaster imprint of his hoof with his name. She said she removed and preserved his heart, she uses it for teaching purposes. I get great comfort from that. I learned 2 things that day, 1. Mackie never gave up, his heart did, 2. it is just a body, his spirit lives on, this is for you Mackie, I love you, we will meet again. If you feel like you know Mackie, then this month has been a success, thanks to all who supported us, special thanks to the dogs that came by every day to vote, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Hi, I had to be at work for 4:15AM, then I had physio after work, sorry I'm late. We left a vote for you. I hope I can get thru these last two days. Things were going well for us, but on August 2/2007 as I was calling the guys in for supper, Mackie laid down just as he approached the gate, not that odd, the strange part was it took him a really long time to get up and with a struggle, it was like slow motion, hard to describe but strange. He looked absolutely exhausted, he had no temp, breathing was regular, he was E, D, P, P, but something just was not right, I went with my gut and I called Dr. Cook. He came the next day and after a very long thorough exam he asked me to put on my "serious hat", he said Mackie needed to be seen by a specialist at the Equine Hospital, a Cardiologist. I said, make the appointment, I'll arrange trailering, Thanks so much for standing by us thru the month. Your support means so much to me. Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Mackie and I appreciate the support, thank you...
Good Morning, I'm so off routine, we had to start work at 5AM yesterday and again Monday, they don't realize that this cuts into my HC time... We left a windy Canadian vote. I did the usual things for the stumbling without much success, but remember it was sporadic, one day while jumping a small course of xrails, Mackie just lost it before the jump and he fell down. Clearly he was upset and the way he looked at me was like, WHAT HAPPENED?? I was not hurt and he looked OK, that was when Dr. Cook came to evaluate. First thing he said was, "you don't want navicular..." after his exam he said he was drawing blood to test for EPM, my heart sank and I said NO, HE HAS NAVICLULAR. I had read a bit about EPM, and I did not want that. I won't go into detail, google it and you will see. It is a neurological disease with some fairly nasty consequences. So, I waited for the blood work to come back. Enjoy your day, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

thanks for supporting Angel Sassy Mac HOTM
Thanks for the compliment, your horses are lovely too. Thanks to everyone that voted us HOTD, we are so excited, we are getting close to the end of the month, I still have lots of story to tell. We left you a vote this afternoon. When things started to go wrong, at first I didn't know what the issue was, mostly because it was not consistent, some days everything was great but other times it was like Mackie had two left front feet. I can't describe it any other way, he stumbled quite a bit, I know lots of horses stumble on occasion, but remember, I knew this horse, and this was not just a stumble. We had his farrier check him, we checked saddle fit, we looked at teeth, we had corrective shoeing done to help with breakover. The strange thing was it was not all the time, I lunged him and tried to see it, it was like he didn't know where to put his feet. Years earlier Dr. Cook gave me a book entitled Lameness in Horses, he has since lived to regret that....I read that book everyday, and when it got to where I felt we needed Dr. Cooks expertise, I called him and said "can you come and look at Mackie? I think he has navicular" Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

Elle is so pretty! Thank you for visiting! Pixie has been very frisky, but she's always excited when I get to go see her because she knows I got treats haha(: As soon as I call her name she perks up and comes over right away. I'm going to make some treats for her, we'll see how this goes(:

Good Morning, leaving a snowy Canadian vote, I believe we all make mistakes, the important thing is that we learn from them. I can honestly say if I knew then what I know now, I never would have taken on Bray. First, Dr. Cook advised against him, he said he knew the blood line, and they were all idiots, I bought him anyway, second, Sterl May didn't like or trust him from day one, I kept him anyway. It was truly a four year struggle but when I finally decided to let him go, it was like a weight off my shoulders, to be continued, thanks to all of you for supporting my Angel Sassy Mac, more on him soon, Love Donna Lee

Thanks, I agree, he is pretty cute :)
Wow :D thanks for HOTD!!! Zeuss got lots of treats for that, plus a great ride! First ride at Country Cedars, very fun in the BEAUTIFUL indoor! I didn't ride outside because it was so HOT, even at 9:30! But it was fairly cool in the indoor, and I spent a couple minutes in the air conditioned tack room, and my mom observed from the nice, cool viewing room! It is a really great facility and really nice people too! Koko is doing great, enjoying her hay and her time outside! She loves it! Anyway, I'm off to swim in my pool, lol! Thanks SO MUCH for HOTD!

Saturday vote 4 U! Do enjoy this great weekend :)
We went to the horse show, but we did not take Fancy nor Trigger because I could not clean them up. I helped out in the arena giving out ribbons. That was as much fun as showing. I really learned a lot helping in the arena. I am so excited and hyped up to show!

My darling Fancy Walk N’s heel bulb is all healed up! I just hope she can stay out of trouble now!!!

friend: Horseback?
me: Sure! It came back before I did.
