How We Met

He is BJ's full blooded younger brother and I originally met him when I met BJ. I knew then that somehow the family would all be together and luckily for us no one got him before we did. He has brought so much joy to my nephew, brother, sister-in-law, and me :-).

Finally some rain....
Actually, I just came in from the barn and it is pouring. My sad pastures need it, however it is not going to break the heat and humidity, we are under an alert until Thursday. So, we do our temps in Celsius, to compare for you, 32C=89.6F add in a humidex of 40. That means it feels like 40C or 104F. Don't get me wrong, I love summer, but this is soo hard on people and animals. This is the first day back to school for Canadian kids. We left a soggy vote, Love Donna Lee

don't forget to vote for Deacon on his page!
silent vote are welcome =)
♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.
Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

Deacon would love your support for HOTM!
♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

Hooves crossed for Whiskey to be ~ May HOTM ♡
<)___~ Whiskey will return to the Doc on May 20th for his next set of x-ray’s. I feel he will be just fine, last dose of bute yesterday and I think in 2 days will tell a lot of how he is but I can’t know for sure until the next visit. I want to thank you all for all the amazing support throughout the month of April. I hope you enjoyed his story and I surely hope I can tell you many more story’s in the future of he & I riding together…God bless you all…..I honestly did not realize how difficult and demanding running for HOTM could be until now! Not having a computer at home really made this challenging for me, so again I cannot say thanks enough, sending love to you & your herds!!!!!!!
Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed! In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it! Hoping to see him as the top horse tomorrow!!!!!

The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I will explain how I came about choosing my Whiskey and Deacon so it takes us Wwway back~~~~~ lol ~ I got out of the Navy in 1986. I knew I wanted to get a horse at the time and I wanted to try barrel racing. I had a friend in California (last place I was stationed) that was running the circuit barrel racing and a boyfriend riding bulls so I guess that is what made me want to try barrels. I really just wanted a horse to care for and ride because I loved them so much. I moved back to Texas and started my search. I met a lady where I started working that raised quarter horses and she had a beautiful dark bay mare that I started riding, her name was Fanny. She was very gentle and easy to handle. My sister said I could put a fence up on her property and use their garage to convert into a stall and storage area. So I went to work with a few friends and converted this place and added one stall and a tack area. It took a few months to get everything ready so the lady let me make payments. Once she was paid off, and the property was ready I brought her home with me. Things just didn’t work out for Fanny & me. I’m sure you all can relate to the fact that some horses and humans are not a match. That is how it was with her, just didn’t feel right. The hunt was on and a new year began 1987 ~ Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) I will start my story with why I have and will ONLY have such well trained and gentle geldings, then I will start how Whiskey & I became each other’s very best friends along with some Rocky Mountain facts about the breed ♡ * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Down to the last couple of days, Thanks to all for helping us with our HOTM, you guys are amazing...
I'm sure you have guessed, the blood work was positive for EPM, that just meant the horse has been exposed to the parasite, the only definitive test is to draw spinal cord fluid, however the protocol at that time was, if you have symptoms and a positive test, treat, so we did just that. Meds had to be given on a near empty stomach so Mackie had to be stalled for an hour with only water, no hay, given the meds then wait an hour before he could eat again. Statistically about 70% of horses will recover, however how much recovery depends on how much nerve damage has been done. Re-occurrence is rare, but it does happen. Mackie seemed to respond well to the meds, his stumbling improved, his general appearance was brighter, however, you guessed it he did have a re-occurrence. We put him back on another course of meds and as a result of the meds he developed gastic ulcers. But thru all of this he just kept plugging along, we dealt with one thing at at time and slowly he improved. We continued riding and we actually started jumping small xrails again, it was just a matter of him regaining muscle memory and his own confidence. It was a trying season but by July things were looking good, in fact today's profile picture was taken shortly after all the treatments, wasn't he a handsome boy? Love Donna Lee & Mackie

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 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

Good Morning, here is a vote and a wish that everyone had a wonderful Christmas Day. Thank You so much for HOTD, this will help us on our HOTM journey.
Mackie had just turned 9 in the spring of 2004 and I brought him home in August, the next spring we dealt with all the health issues, which we overcame. Spring 2006 came and believe me I was terrified about his vaccinations. Dr. Cook had decided to premedicate plus we broke them up and did them over a few days rather than all at once. I watched him like a hawk, I bet I took his temp on the hour...poor Mackie. All went well, our riding also went well, we were working so well together, I had him doing small courses of just xrails, but still it was great fun. I had managed to put a few pounds on him, race horses tend to be a bit too slim for me. Life was good. funny how it can change so quickly. Love Donna Lee & Mackie

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

Hi guys, we left a vote. I'm here on Mackie's page again, I haven't really told you much about him. I know all horses are special, for example Sterly holds a special place in my heart because she was the first horse I owned, not the first horse I had, but the first one I owned. Mackie however, is that horse that will stay in my heart forever...he came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent 4 years struggling with a horse that was all wrong for me, and I was too stubborn to give up. Mackie had a way of making everything alright. From the very first moment I saw him, there was an instant connection, I miss him every day, Love Donna Lee
