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.

We have missed you...
I want you all to know that I do miss our chats and daily visits, thanks to all of you for hanging in with us. I am taking this one day at a time, as I told Cheryl, I had no idea that I would be affected this badly by the loss of my Charlie, maybe it is because I'm getting older, lol. Everything seems to be an effort...Sterl and Blossom are doing well. They are great buds, and Blossom is a strong, I'm not afraid of anything little girl. She will lead nicely, but as for lunging, we have not gotten too far, I have to admit, I don't work to hard on it, I don't have the energy for that either. Sterl is holding her own, I am very vigilant and actually watch her like a hawk for any signs of trouble, but basically she is e,d,p,p what more can I ask...love to all, Donna Lee

Come visit me, Sterl May & Blossom, Angel Sassy Mac Mar 8/95-Aug 8/07 & Angel Royal Mes Apr 16/02-Dec 3/16.

morning my friends
Junior is all kinds of fun, he is such a laid back, kind dog, I believe he loves everyone and everything, absolutely no issues with the house cats, Charles, the shop cat is not sure of him yet. We are doing lots of refresher obedience, he does not seem to be toy motivated and I have not found the treat that is absolutely irresistible to him yet. so far so good, lovin' him. Have a great day

INTRODUCING JUNIOR...
Hello my friends, I would like you to meet Junior, pic on Sterl's page, he is a 7 yr old Golden Retriever. After the heart break of losing Charlie and then Zack, I really felt it was time to bring another dog into our home, David was not so sure, but hey...I know best. I had been shopping around to try and find the right mix, with the help of our friend Marion, yes, our HC friend, we looked at several, until last Saturday I happened upon the rehoming ad for Junior, it had literally just been posted, I was the first response, and fortunately, they liked the sound of us. The bad part, they live 2 1/2 hours from us, but with a bit of persuasion, we were on the road early Sunday morning and you guessed it, he came home with us. It was a long day for everyone and I'm sure very confusing for Junior, he had been in his home since he was 9 weeks old. They were very sorry to loose him, but their son is off to University and the Mom and Dad are moving to a condo, not enough room for Junior. I'm happy to report that he seem sto be fitting in very nicely. Have a great day, Donna Lee

Bachelor #4
So, Bachelor #4 is home from summer pasture, I met him and rode him last night. See pic below, Sterl's page. first, I can't believe I got on him without my helmet, I have never done that. I'm also in Kori's Western tack, so feeling a bit like a fish out of water, but, he is lovely, he is a Standardbred, YEAH, he is well behaved, he is handsome and he is mine to ride if I choose, and I choose...so I think I have found my new best friend and I can finally shake off this funk I have been in. I plan to take my saddle over this weekend and then I can make a final decision, have a great day, ttyl.
