My Horse Profile

Thoroughbred from Lakeside, ON

Royal Mes

About Me

Active within 1 Day

I am from Lakeside, ON and I've been a Club Horse member for 3 years, 3 months and 28 days

Nicknames: His registered name is ROYAL MES we call him Charlie Bubbles, he blows bubbles in his water pail....

Age: 12 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 16.3 hands

Color: dark bay

Type of Riding: english riding, some jumping and just pleasure hack. We started dressage spring 2012, it seems to be more our "thing", Charlie can be a bit lazy and although I wanted to jump, he isn't really into it.

My Horse's Achievements: I am proud of Charlie everyday, but what I love about him most is that he has no idea he is TB....He has a very kind heart and would never think of doing anything goofy when you are on his back, his manners are impeccable. He is the reason that Sterl May is still going strong, he keeps her moving when they are outside and when they are in, he is company for her across the stall door. I don't ride in the winter and when I tack him up in the spring he literally acts like I rode him yesterday, such an easy horse. Love him so much, lucky day for me when I found him. He was HOTD October 24, 2011. He was proud to be HOTM April 2012. He got HOTD for a second time October 25, 2012
Charlie was HOTD for 3rd time October 25, 2013
Charlie was HOTD for 4th time October 25, 2014

My Horse's Favorite Treat: carrots, apples, actually anything to eat, his appetite is great, recently found out they both LOVE pears.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: he loves to have his neck and belly scratched, he would stand there as long as you could do it.

Pet Peeves: He hates to get wet, eg. the rain, snow, he will tolerate a bath, but it is not fun!!

My Horse's motto: it's all about me, everybody loves Charlie.

How We Met

About 1 1/2 years after the heartbreak of losing my horse, Sassy Mac (Mackie) due to heart failure, he has a profile page Angel Sassy Mac. I started to look for a new horse with the help of my coach. I looked at probably 25 horses, everything I tried was nice, but nothing really got me excited. Finally my coach told me the problem was I was trying to replace Mackie, and that was never going to happen. She said I had to just pick a horse and fall in love with it after I got it home. I took offence to that remark, I have always believed that when the connection is there, you will know. I was not prepared to "just pick one" so I decided to stop looking for awhile. Two days later my coach called and told me about a horse she wanted me to see. I said NO, she proceded to tell me about him anyway, first, he was only 6, too young, he was a Thoroughbred, I didn't want a Thoroughbred and he was 16.2, he was a bit bigger than I wanted. But she insisted, the horse was fairly close to home, so I agreed to just go and look. I know some of you will understand this, when I walked into his stall and our eyes met. The connection was instant. It was the feeling I had been waiting for. I could not believe it, I forgot that he was big, and a Thoroughbred, I rode him that morning and fell in love. I called our Vet the minute I got home and asked for the pre purchase exam, Charlie was delivered the next week. He is just a very amazing horse. Love at first sight, it does happen!!

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was very sunny and got to about 36 again today. Compressed and melted more of Friday nights snow storm. But heck, that just to make room for the major one starting before dawn on Monday and going to late Tuesday afternoon. Our latest prediction is for 14 to 18 inches with winds of 15 to 25 and gusts of 40 MPH> The winds will make for drifts by me of 5 and 6 foot high! Been there, I know what I'm in for, and I'm not happy at all about it! Well got to do a lot of ground work with Paige and poor Indy asked what was up, he actually was on the lunge line today and then he too did the circle driving. Bullseye got a trim by his farrier today. So that's all done. Hopefully I'll still be able to hit the indoor tomorrow and get them out in there, but Tuesday when it's all over, the major clean up will start! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Wow, that sounds like a really beautiful service. And people came from so far away. That says so much about what kind of person she was. What a tribute.
You mentioned Trevor. How's he doing? Did he get transportation before the winter snows set in? Is he happy working in the city?
My son moved out this past monday, only about 5 mins away, but its still weird. I've seen him a few times when he's come home to grab lunch, and he'll have to do laundry here (or, more likely, I'll have to do his laundry).
Well, hope you have a good and relaxing sunday. Take care.

A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE...
It was an absolutely fabulous service. We were late starting because they had trouble getting everyone into the funeral home. Jackie's bell ringers, rang us(the family) to our seats, it was beautiful. some of Jackie's favorite music was played while they tried to get everyone seated. 3 different ministers briefly spoke and we prayed.. Jackie's son in law gave a wonderful speech, we all laughed right out loud, we all cried a bit and then 2 of her grandchildren spoke, they were just amazing, what nice kids. Adam played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes, so lovely. The bell ringers rang us all out and we went for lunch at a hall, it was a huge group of people all for Jackie, it was wonderful to see all her nieces and nephews there, Trevor came with some of the boys from London, one of the nieces came from BC and some cousins came from Scotland and North Carolina and California. There is a huge hole in that community and in the hearts of us who loved her, she is safe now, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well we got the snow! YUK! Just about 8 inches of the white heavy type! It kinda stopped by about 11 am, so that's when I hit the deck running! Well, not really running! If you really know me, you know my knees don't allow that! LOL! But the tractor, shovel and snow thrower and I all had a good 3 hour and 10 minute workout! Needless to say, horses got hay and fresh water at lunch time and then I got the wood burner and a nap! Along with a couple of Advil! And guess what, this was only a minor one, more coming for Monday night into Tuesday, this time could be better than a foot of snow! Looks like winter is now in full gear! Double Yuk! Oh well, nothing I can do about it, just clean it up! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Thank you all for my birthday wishes here on HC & FB! I had a really nice day. First of all we went to the grocery store, after unloading and putting everything up I gave the horses their afternoon hay. It is so muddy here. It will take a good while to dry out, so no riding. It will be in the 70's for 4-5 days so while I'm off work Tuesday, I will haul out and ride. I brushed and groomed the herd that is so relaxing for me. Of course I sat while they ate their dinner. That was about it for me, had to work today so I hit the hay early :)

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Today will be the tough one, Jackie's grandson Adam wants to play his bagpipes at the service, Amazing Grace, she was so proud of her family. Jackie was in a Bell Ringer group and they want to do something at the service as well, she was a very active member of her community and visitation was wonderful, people were lined up outside the building to get in to see her family, I'm going to need lots of tissues today....she will be missed, We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well we had a sunny kinda warm day today. It hit like 37 degrees and melted off a little of the snow and ice. But that's just to make room for tonight's storm that's movin' on in! Now the prediction is 4 to 6 inches before stopping late Saturday after noon. Took another wheel barrel of 3 bales of hay to the barn. So we're good to go a few day. My hay man has really gone up in price, now up to $6.50 delivered and stacked. From $5.25 last year this time. Oh well! Kids gotta have hay! Got Paige lunged and a nice short ride in on her, she's a dream! Got Indy free lunged and we played ball, but he's not the ball player that H.T. was, that's for sure! Then when I got Bullseye in there, it was double duty! I fired up the quad and dragged the area, he either ran next to me or along side of the drag, so he got a good 20 minute work out! Think I'll do that twice a week with him, he's been getting a little feisty in his stall! And now we watch the weather channel on the cell phone and wait for the snow! Love, Marion and the blondes.

SAD NEWS TO SHARE....
David's sister, Jackie has lost her battle with cancer. She was a 5 year breast cancer survivor and this dreadful disease returned this fall, after lots of tests etc. it was determined to be in her liver, gall bladder and ovaries it was inoperable, in early December they gave her 3-6 months, she died on Sunday afternoon, with her family close by. Jackie spent her entire life giving to others, we called her Saint Jackie, she will be missed. Love Donna Lee

I want a good pair of western riding boots. I'll live in them. Lol. I'm not sure when Rick will get the shed up. With the Super Bowl, and the upcoming events, he has to work overtime. He works at a grocery warehouse. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, any day that includes food and alcohol, means no days off. He does have Friday, but says he's not doing anything. Understandable, but hard to wait. Austin and I went out to checkout the spot where I want it. Need to level the ground, Getting a good shovel this weekend, so I can start on it. Seems to take me forever to get something done. Ready to get in gear and take a picture of it......And thanks for the birthday wishes. Love and a vote.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well there was about 1/2 inch of snow this morning, guess we got some after all over night. But it did warm up to about 37, overcast, but still melted it off. I was happy about that, cause it melted a little more of the ice from last week too. Got Paige and Indy lunged and showmanship with both. I love showmanship class. Can you tell! LOL! Weathermen are keeping an eye on this storm coming in from out west, Saturday could be our first major snow storm of 2015! Hope not! Love, Marion and the blondes.

I worked from 2 to close, Tuesday, but still had a nice birthday. Got a $20 tip. I told Rick I wanted money for boots. He said he wasn't giving me that much. Said he'd help put the shed up. That works. Austin works on the days I don't, so it's been hard to work on it. With the Super Bowl coming here, Rick's working overtime. Going to be crazy here. The traffic's going to be ridiculous. Thankful I won't be stuck in it. Love always and a vote. <3

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well 14 degrees when we feed this morning. And my equine dentist was coming at 9 am, it was only up to 17 degrees then and the barn heater had it about 44 in there. But the floor was cold and even with my pack boots on, my toes and feet got cold. So after 3 hours in there, the house was looking really good. Paige and Indy were fantastic as usual for Paul. Bullseye, not so good, he's always a stinker! But Paul got him done, he only needs a little filing usually, and Pauls great, no charge on him ever! Go figure, you would think that with dragging Paul all over his stall, it would cost twice as much! LOL! Needless to say, lunch only for them and I stayed in the house trying to defrost! So far, our snow for this afternoon hasn't appeared! And I hope it don't! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well still a bunch of spots with ice, so you have to pick you're way down to the barn, but buy the barn is really good for getting the horses out to the indoor. I keep that path well maintained. Ran to town, well took Beast and got more grain for Indy and Bullseye, and Paige's Alfa-Lox. Got home and Lunged Paige and did more of the circle driving, she's really do well with it. Then showmanship. Indy got free lunged and showmanship too. Bullseye just got to run and play, silly donkey! LOL! Snow moving in for Wed afternoon into Thurs. Few inches possible they said. We'll see! LOL! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was about 1/2 inch of ice on top of the frozen ground this morning when I went to feed. Driveway was a sheet of ice with a layer of snow on top of it. We must have had some snow during the wee hours of the night. Needless to say, 100lbs of ice melt down, between driveway and by the barn to the indoor. By noontime I was able to get them to the indoor for some exercise. Then I had the chiropractor this afternoon, all the while driving Beast, it was snowing again! Is it spring yet???

BIG ADVENTURE...
I was just putting away some laundry, as I passed by the window upstairs I glanced out only to see Charlie and Sterly strolling out back of the barn, the gate wide open. I freaked, called David, by the time I got outside heading for the barn to get leads and a bucket of feed, they were on the road heading for the woods, shear panic....I called, shook the bucket, they looked at me and turned around, thru the ditch full tilt toward me, but I could not catch either of them, David came around the corner of the barn and Sterly trotted right up to him, he got her halter and Charlie followed...too much excitement for me, Love Donna Lee

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. First let me say that Shannon with Zip has been trying to log on all last night and today, and not being able to. I've had problems, but have been getting on. She's also dealing with computer problems, so she asked if everyone would please vote Zip! Well I got the am feeding done just as the freezing rain hit us. And at 22 degrees, you would have thought it to be snow, but no! And with a frozen ground, it's an ice skating rink out there. Went down at 1:30 to give lunch and made darn sure I had my Yak-Trax on my boots. I'll be going down shortly for pm feeding and it's not much better and dark now too! Oh the joys of winter! Needless to say, nothing got done today with the horses. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was sunny today and stayed that way with the temps reaching about 25 and no winds! Indoor was like 36 when I worked Paige out and free lunged Indy. Bullseye got to run and play too, the little stinker! I ran down town this morning to Tractor supply to meet up with the receptionist from my lung doctors office. She got me 5 months supply of my Advair for my asthma, it's so expensive when you don't have great prescription coverage anymore! So that'll help out a lot, make about one months truck payment. LOL! And I took Beast for the ride. And she worked, had to get 40 bricks of Eco Wood for the wood burner, they are compressed wood and weigh about 7 lbs each and come in a 3 pack. So now I'm set hopefully for the rest of the winter. Still have about 2 cords of really good hard wood too. Tomorrow is sleet and freezing rain, changing over to all rain.
