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
