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.

If I could afford to move out on my own, be able to take my animals, I'd have moved out by now. Rick hates my cats. He fusses about Sadie, too. Not nice to Scruffy, either. I know God will deal with him. There's a black dog, female, very sweet, in the neighborhood. She may have been tossed out by some ahole. She was in my yard, Monday night, treeing some of my cats. Rick took a large rock and knocked one of the cats out of the tree. He fell, the dog chased him. He got away, escaping through the fence. Austin and I were both upset. I went out back with Sadie. Rick and Austin went out back with Rick yelling and cussing us. I stayed in the corral to get away from the argument between Rick and Austin. Sadie, who doesn't bite, was listening to him and started biting at me. When Mr. Flapping lips came down to where we were, I made a quick job of telling his butt what's what. He shut up. He paced the yard for a while, then started apologizing to us. His mom has stomach cancer, again. I know this and other things, are weighing on him, but too much is too much. I pointed out that he's not the only one with issues and not the only one with a heavy heart. Guess he thought about it and felt bad. He needs therapy. We probably all do. Proud of myself for the way I handled it. I gave Sadie some love and carrots. Loved on my cats and Scruffy, too. He wasn't in the line of fire, but heard it. Trusting God. I have to. Love my home. It's a blessing. Praying for tomorrow. Thank you for being there. Love and a vote. <3

Saturday was a long work day. I'm only working weekends, for now, because work is slow, so Saturday was a blessing. Need to pick up some Freedom 45. The flies are awful. I feel bad for Tracy's burros. They're so wild, she can't do anything but feed and water them. Too wild to get close enough to to treat for flies. They'll come up to her for the animal crackers she buys them, but for nothing else. Glad Sadie's sociable. I'd be hurt if she didn't allow me to do things for her. She's such a brat but a good girl, too. She thinks a conversation is suppose to include her. Leaving lots of love and a vote from us.

I've kept my Manna Pro fly spray in my hay shed. I've had it for so long, summer heat, etc., I didn't think it would work, but When I sprayed Sadie with it, Monday, the fart'n flies went away. My friend, Tracy, has 2 burros that she adopted. They're wild. When I visited Saturday, the flies were attacking their eyes. So sad. She can't get near them to put on spray or fly masks. After Star went blind in both eyes from glaucoma, I'm careful to keep Sadie's protected with her fly mask. Tracy seems to have more flies at her place than I do. Going to leave lots of love and a vote.

What a great Vegas trip! Austin fell in love with The Hard Rock Cafe and Casino. No gambling, but was so excited about the displays. We had his birthday dinner at The HR Cafe, and he was introduce, by our server, to the patrons who sang Happy Birthday to him. It was a blessing to see him so excited. We went to Planet Hollywood, Bally's, The Flamingo and Caesar's Palace as well as The Hard Rock. Went by fast, of course. We got home around 7 pm tonight. I picked up a shift at work for Sunday. Back to the grind. Scruffy was happy to see us, my cats excited to go outside and Sadie acted like I hadn't left. Much to do. Love and a very blessed Saturday night vote. <3

IT'S OFFICIAL......check pics on Sterly's page
I am officially unemployed, yeah. Friday was not only my 65th birthday but also my last day of work at the plant...I have to say it still feels pretty strange, it has not totally sunk in yet. I posted a few pics of the party, it was an absolutely fabulous day, filled with tears, laughs, hugs, well wishes and oh don't forget the presents...that is me with my two supervisors and the cakes we had a lunch. I'm still on a high, what a wonderful goodbye. Monday will feel so strange, Love to all, Donna Lee
