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.

Sorry we have been absent...
Good Morning my friends, all I can say is there is not enough hours in the day... Sterly and Charlie had their vaccinations last Monday when I was off work, and you guessed it, Charlie had a reaction. Even tho we always premedicate him he still had a mild colic, I don't care, colic is colic mild or not. He is OK now, he bounced back pretty quickly, I think 'cause I was home to watch out for him, love that guy, even with his issues. Have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Hi Angel Mackie, here's a heavenly vote for ya buddy. Love ya, Angel H.T. here's a vote for ya. Well, so much for riding. I did something dumb this morning. While brushing my teeth, I forgot about the sutures and brushed to hard! Ripped them lose and out, so was bleeding and decided not a good idea to ride and maybe jar things loser! Didn't want to start up bleeding with my dentist closed on Saturday. But I did weed whack and mow another pasture while the horses were all turned out. Not before lungeing Indy and Paige, then Paige and I did some more showmanship work. I'm really into Showmanship, can you tell! Also vacuumed out the trailer and all the rugs and my truck from Harley's dog hair. Then washed the trailer floor, as if it didn't get enough water last week! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

A storm came through, Thursday. We had some wind and only a little rain. Cities, to the east of us, got flooded and 9,000 people lost power. Lightning struck a palm tree and caused a fire. There were dust storms, too. Thankful we were spared. Love always and a vote.

Thanks for the votes!
Dropping by with some votes this Thursday morning. I did a quick bareback ride yesterday afternoon. It was hot but the breeze really helped. Anyway,we jumped. He refused several times but I got him to go over it at least ten times. Only at a trot, a fast trot though. Then we cooled down on the trail. Hope all is good, have a blessed day!!!

Hey,hope everyone is getting some horsey time in this week. I rode Copper yesterday morning in his English saddle. He did awesome! I took a few more pictures yesterday after our ride and uploaded them on his page. We got some rain last night and are getting hammered right now! So no riding this morning. We need it really bad though so it's a
Blessing! Here's a vote!

Trotting by with a click on your horseshoe. Slowly but surely the weather is getting cooler, a week ago it was 106, now it's 95. The heat down here in Texas is brutal. Although the forecast shows rain for today and tomorrow. Sure hope we get some, it's unbelievable dry, lots of cracks in the ground. This morning I'm going to ride Darbs, our ride Saturday morning was a great lesson. He didn't act up really, we loped both sides and I got him going a little faster. It was great! Hope all is well, get some horsey time. Love always and best wishes!

CHECK OUT STERL MAY'S PICS...
It's all about Sterl May, blah, blah, blah, Can you see a difference? Top row is August 9, 2nd row is July 9, 3rd row is June 9. I think she is looking a bit fat?? At any rate, I'm glad I did pics, because when I see her everyday, it is hard to tell. I think she looks great, so proud of her, Love to all, Donna Lee
