How We Met

I had gone to a parelli meeting and learned a lot of stuff so when we go home:
So the next day at their house it was really early in the morning April and her mom walked out side.
“So now you have learned all of that stuff it would be a shame to not use it pick a horse that is in the field and that horse you can have here at the house.”
I thanked them and headed off to the field their where a few horses their where Quarter horses, fancy ones, large ones, and small ones. But one caught me attention the most it was a rather small looking horse about the same size as me she was a bay one blue eye and one brown eye, she was really fuzzy.
“That one!” I said in excitement
“Are you sure? She is a little bit old but with the size of your weight you could ride her she has not been worked with so before you ride her you should work with her, are you positive that this is going to be your new horse because we have ones that are… well better in shape than this one.” April said
“This is the one I know it is thank you so much.” I said
And from that day on the two began to work and work at one point she rode her but that is a different story of a different time.

THE LAST STORY....
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

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 Icy Morning, we did not get it as bad a Toronto area...here is your vote. Mackie had many health issues ranging from things like "scratches" on that white foot, to a couple sessions of mild colic, altho when you are in it, it does not seem mild. He had choke once, very scary and then there was the day that he got a bee sting in the side of his face, see why I always antihistamine on hand Marion...But thru all this we continued to ride and ride well. I started him over some xrails to help him be confident in his canter, remember Standardbreds are punished for canter, no breaking gait at the track. And of course, Dr. Cook was getting to know him very well. Have a great day, Love Donna Lee & Mackie.

We are trying to get our votes and blogs done before we lose power, we had freezing rain all night and forecast for all day too, yuk. Thanks again for supporting us, we love it. When spring arrived I could not wait to get my boy going, we had a wonderful winter of just getting to each other. His movement was much different than Sterl May, I posted a couple of pics, he had a lovely long stride. He was smooth even at trot. Trouble started with his spring vaccinations, first he had a reaction to either tetanus or rabies, we know because Dr. Cook, gave both of those in the hip, and the West Nile in the neck. Mackie seemed off within hours of the shot, sometimes not uncommon, but by the next morning he was running a temp, and he was not wanting to move. We tried hot compresses, but when he started to swell at the injection site, Dr. Cook came and we started him on antibiotics. I called Kathy and she said he had never had an issue.. Remember I said if it wasn't for BAD LUCK I'd have NO LUCK. Well, it got worse, Mackie now had a swelling the size of a soft ball on his rump, and he was getting 2 injections a day of the meds. On the second day, didn't he react to the antibiotic, YES HE DID. Next step, Dr. Cook changed the meds and decided that the abscess had to be opened. When the pressure was released, it literally expolded in Dr. Cooks face, and it hit the ceiling of the barn, that must have felt so good for Mackie. This procedure had to be done twice and there were almost daily visits from Dr. Cook, remember it isn't about the money... cha ching....We finally got this mess all cleared up and decided that he would have to be premeditated before any vaccination in the future. Have a great day, talk soon, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Good Morning my friends, thank goodness we missed the most of the freezing rain, we got plain rain, but more is on the way today. We left an early morning vote.
I felt that getting Mackie in late August was a perfect time, I still had some nice weather to ride, that year I think I was still riding some in early December. And then, because I don't ride in the winter, we could use that time to really get to know each other. It was a wonderful winter. I think one of the things I loved most about him was his calm manner, he was a very affectionate horse and he got along so well with Sterl May and little Jackie. They were like the 3 musketeers,
I just so enjoyed watching them. I guess David was right, I was at the barn A LOT. Have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

We are leaving a freezing rain vote, yuk, should be an interesting ride to work....
Mackie and Sterl May are both pacer bred Standardbre's, however because of all the groundwork Kathy did with Mackie, he very rarely paced. Sterl May fell into a pace whenever she was upset or confused about what I was asking, since I was a beginner, that was quite often. The pace is not uncomfortable to sit, just different. It is a distinct back and forth motion, side to side. It didn't matter to me, actually I thought it was cool that my horses had an extra gait. Mackie was so calm and easy to be with, I was lovin' this. Thanks for listening to my stories, love HC, talk soon, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Here's a quick vote from Buddy! I've been so busy lately, and it seems like I haven't really been doing anything at the same time. Theres a new girl working at the barn, which is good in a way, but it also sucks because she is so slow that it doesn't even seem like she's there. I'm hoping she gets better when I come back from my Christmas vacation. I leave on Sunday after I'm done work so I may or may not be able to get on. If I do it will probably be from my phone, and I will just be leaving quick little hello votes!

Rode Buddy Tuesday after work, we just walked and trotted around the arena with another girl I work with. I don't want to work him too much just yet. The trainer that is here is also starting to offer training rides once or twice a week when she's here so I am going to talk to her about that and a lesson maybe once every week or two!

Hope everyone is doing well and keeping warm and all ready for Christmas!

We left a vote, it was very sad to lose Bray, I had such high hopes for him. Mackie however, was just what the Dr. ordered for me. I was riding more than ever, never made excuses, I spent way too much time at the barn, that according to David...We even started over some small xrails, my confidence was back.

Good Morning, early vote. Mackie arrived in late August, his feet had been trimmed and he was up to date on vacs. Sterly had laid out the barn rules and he was quite at home with us. He had, as I said had extensive ground work done. I was never big on lungeing, but I did with him because I needed to rebuild my confidence, he was a absolute pleasure to work with and riding him seemed effortless after my time with Bray. Things were going super for us and I hoped for Bray as well. However it was not to be. More tomorrow. Thanks for the help with HOTM, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Good Morning, I slept in until 4:30, Charlie and Sterly are having their warm buckets. We are leaving votes and great thanks for the overwhelming support, special thanks to the Dogs from DC, you guys are amazing. Today's story is about Mom's and best friends. Remember at the time I found Mackie the horses were not at home. I rented a barn and 5 acres of pasture a mile and half down the road, plus I still had the expense of Sterly and Jackie, both retired. Even tho Mackie was looking like a perfect choice there was one itsy, bitsy problem, $$$$. Our rule (me and David) my horses, my money. My Mom said, how much, I said about half, she wrote me a cheque and said "David doesn't need to know about this, you are happier when you have a horse, I want to do this", I said" I'll pay you back" she said "you bet you will" Love you Mom. Next I arranged for the trailering, Mackie was about 2 1/2 hours NW of me and Bray was going about an hour SE of me. Just one more itsy, bitsy problem, I had to work the day it was scheduled. Step up Sonya, she said she would be at the barn, meet the trailer, unload Mackie, load Bray and stay with him until I got home. Love you Sonya. So the night before, I got Bray all buffed up, told him he was going on a new adventure and that I would never forget him, I said my goodbyes. To be continued, Love Donna Lee and Mackie

We left a thank you vote, I have been getting up at 2:30 in the morning to get my blog written and do some votes, I am so happy to tell Mackie's story. Interesting fact the Magnificent Albatross, the greatest Sandardbred of all time, was Sterly's grandsire, he was also Mackie's grandsire. Mackie came from a pretty good racing background here is a little info on his Sire. Cam Luck
Camluck was an awesome member of Canadian trainer Robert McIntosh’s “Dream Team”of pacers, which included champions Artsplace and Staying Together. His fame, however, came not only from his accomplishments as a racehorse, which saw him win over $1 million and 26 races, but as one of the most prolific stallions to ever stand at stud in Canada. His first nine crops old enough to race had accumulated more than $100 million and include 322 offspring with records of 1:55 or faster and ten millionaires. Have a great day, thanks for supporting us, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Good afternoon, we so much appreciate the support, thanks, we left a vote,
After we got home I bet I watched that video a 100 times, I called Kathy and told her I wanted him. Mackie came from a racing from in Michigan, Kathy got him straight from the track, I was very grateful because she did tons of ground work with him. His manners were impeccable. Kathy was very sad to lose him, however she had been in a very bad accident and as a result had lost the use of her hands, she lost her drivers licence and had to let her horses go. I felt very certain that she was an honest person and Mackie was exactly what she said he was. At about the same time I had found what I thought was a perfect match for Bray. She was a young intermediate rider BUT, Bray would be in a very large show barn, show would have tons of support around her. It would be a good atmosphere for my "MR FULL OF HIMSELF" Thanks for helping Mackie with your votes and visits, we appreciate it and I am enjoying telling his story, Love Donna Lee

I NEED THE VOTE ON ANGEL SASSY MAC'S PAGE,HOTM
Here is a Cold, Cold Canadian vote, please help Angel Sassy Mac get HOTM, vote for him, I checked out a few more horses, but nothing really turned my crank. I heard about one that sounded good, but she was a couple of hours away, so I found two more in that area to look at and Sonya and I made a day of it. I went to the first one which had originally sounded sooooo good, when we arrived she was NOTHING like they had represented, she was the prettiest horse I had ever seen, but zero training at 6. He said take her home if you don't love her bring her back. We left. The next one was a possibility, Sonya liked him more than me. He was a bit too much up, I rode him but felt like I was fighting him, really strong in the bridle, he was alright, but not great. By now I'm tired and frustrated and I didn't want to bother with the third horse. But Sonya said we came all this way let's go. So we did, we got lost, two phone calls later we found the place. I'm tired, a little bit cranky and I'm already sure I won't like this horse. His owner was the nicest lady, so very quiet and easy to talk to. When we walked into her barn Mackie was in x-ties. He was so relaxed, so calm and so gentle looking. I instantly loved his looks, we took a bit of time to chat and get acquainted. His Mom lounged him, and then I rode him. Sonya had brought the camera so we videoed him, we thanked her and I said I would go home and talk it over, I'd call her in a couple of days.
I'm pretty sure I talked about him the whole way home, guess what I said when I called her the next day???? to be continued. Thanks to everyone that has supported us, we are so happy, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

yesterday's news
yesterday we rode we rode around i felt sad because soon i would not be able to ride her because of her age. life about sparkles her earlier life lead her to the girl scout camp she was a riding pony but years later she lost sight on one eye then as the girl scouts say she was to wild because she was very spooky and they called her spunky pony but she was a little bit crazy when she came to the farm but she has mellowed down so much since then. So with all that saying i am looking for a horse about 14-15 hands any gender and i am looking for a nice color, oh and with a reasonable price to let know if you see a horse like that.
Thanks. :)

Hi!
Leaving Sparkles a quick vote!
I rode Rose yesterday. We worked on barrel exercises. After a couple of the exercises I loped the barrel pattern and it was really good! It was a really good session for both of us. Afterwards I walked her around and let her graze a little.

Thankful it warmed up enough yesterday that I was able to fill up the water tub - it was almost empty. Sure do like that deicer. Would hook up the bucket heater, but the plug cover is coated in over a 1/2" of ice. Looks like no riding for a while, with rain predicted the end of the week. Cheryl & Cisco
