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, 6 months and 21 days

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

Age: 13 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 another really sunny day! Only the temps this time only got to about 67, but it was still T-shirt weather for me. Kevin came over and we lifted the lawn tractor up with the bucket of the big tractor and he was able to change the mowing blades and scrap the underside of the deck. All ready to rock now! Then I lunged Indy and Paige today. Turned them out in their pastures, grass is low, but green. Indy struggled but got his head down to eat it. Paige just stood there looking pathetic the entire time. Bullseye of course went to town running and eating. The after that, I gave Beast a coat of the spray on liquid wax shine. Now it's really looking great. Only rain almost all this week. I have chiropractor tomorrow, thinking I'll take the old Blue out and use up some of my diesel fuel in it. LOL, don't want to sell it with a full tank, 38 gallons at $3 a pop! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Glad Charlie likes his diet. Do you feed anything besides the alfalfa and the ulcer diet? Just in case I get asked, hopefully will be doing a clinic and competition at Steve's this weekend if the weather cooperates.

ALL IS WELL....
I had a great day yesterday, got lots done outside, the paddocks are all clean. All of the old hay from winter is cleaned up and taken away, no poop laying around. We are going to reseed the one paddock but i can't do that until it is a bit dryer and not as windy. I even had time for a short ride. Charlie seems to be adjusting to the change in weather well, and his new diet is a hit, he loves his bucket. They will both gets teeth and shots in the next few weeks and Charlies's shoes go back on, have a great day, Love and a vote Donna Lee

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well, they both had sore stiff necks this morning. Called Larry, give each 5 cc Banamine orally and work them out later to get them to loosen up. I do have to admit it takes them about 3 or 4 days to feel better. Did last year from what I have in the computer. Paige was fine today on the line, I think cause she picked that rock up in the indoor, I've been really dragging deep, so she was working in like 5 or 6 inches of sand, she didn't hurt herself. Just walked on it for like 50 feet to the barn and out it came, with a hammer however! Well, lunged them and then did baths. It was over 76 degrees with sunshine and a little breeze. But since I have hot and cold water to use, I made a nice warm tubby for them. LOL! Tail and manes are snow white again. Then I washed Beast! Shinning like a cooper penny it is! I'm tired for sure! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Tired of the mud. Only 1/4" last night, but enough to make it muddy again today. I need to ride, I need to mow, and I need to pick up some fencing supplies. Can't do any of that till we dry out.

Good morning We are having a beautiful day. Jax got his teeth done yesterday. Plan on going out and brushing him. He rolled and he looks like pig pen LOL. Should have named him that. So hard to keep white white. :) If it is as warm as they say, maybe a bath. Just don't want to do it too early, our nights are still cool. Have a great Sat. Hope you get to ride. Vicki & Big Jax

NO NEW CASES OF BIRD FLU...
It looks like the quarantine is working, there have been no new cases reported, we had a really short week, about 25 hours, it did give me lots of time to get stuff done outside, however not good for the old pay cheque... it will be a few weeks like this, the quarantines can not be lifted until the farms test negative for 21 consecutive days. It is what it is, we will survive, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well Paige and Indy both put in a good night! Thank goodness, cause I was on edge listening for any distress coming from the barn. Indy didn't need anymore Banamine today. Paige got another 5 cc at 1 pm and by 3 pm I was able to lunge her and do some showmanship. Of course now I have something new to worry about. She stepped on and it wedged in her shoe, a 2X3 in rock! I had to use a hammer to knock it out! Hopefully she won't bruise up and be sore! Like that poor girl! Depending on how things go Saturday, I might ride her. But for sure Indy and Paige are getting baths! Sunshine and supposed to be about 75! Yippy! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Happy Birthday Charlie!
Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya buddy. Well Dr. Larry came about 1:30 and did coggins and shots. I now have to very lethargic horses and a donkey who acts like nothings happened. Donkeys are so tough! Larry said to lunge them today to get them moving more than just standing in the pasture for a short time. They lunged fine about 3 pm. By 7 pm feeding time, Paige was down for the count and I gave her 7 cc Banamine and Indy wasn't interested in eating either. He got 5 cc Banamine as he did eat half his grain and some hay. Paige had no interest in anything, even her alfalfa! But about 30 minutes after the Banamine she was eating some hay. Also had me put some DMSO on their necks by the shot sites. Here we go again with about 3 days of this. Tomorrow I'll turn them out in the indoor, cause it's going to be raining all night tonight into tomorrow! Darn! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was another busy day. Did a few things here to get Paige's stall ready for her. I feel like I want to sleep in there, 5 bags of pelleted bedding, fluffed up to about 6/7 inches deep and smells great! OMG, do I love driving Beast with the trailer. Smaller gooseneck handled awesome. Put the shift lever in Hauling Mode and going down out big mountain, never had to touch the breaks, it did it all! Had a great lesson, we went over my lesson plan for next week. Since Dr. Larry is coming tomorrow for shots and coggins, Paige usually gets a really sore stiff neck for like 3 days. So well be taking it easy then. Then I have a great plan to work on. Didn't get home till like 5 pm. Indy was nickering to her, Bullseye could care less (little stinker). Nice to have her home. Love, Marion and the blondes.

doesn't it feel heavenly to finely get on their backs to ride...I know you felt soooo good!!! I am rested after my short mini vacation! Yes I had much needed horse time. I did get to the lake and ride and of course I had spa time and riding time at home. Whiskey was my main horse over this time. I have to get him ready for the hot months of summer. He is always a good boy. I did ride Deacon some because I don’t want to stop riding him until hopefully end of June. Deacon's birthday was Sunday so they all enjoyed carrots and treats! He is in such good shape right now and Whiskey is too but I have to make sure. Turnout for them each day and put up for dinner and then back out for turnout in afternoon each day. When May gets here I can just leave out and not worry about the green growing grass! We did receive rain off and on in the last few days but nothing to interfere with my horsey time ♡ Have a wonderful hump day ♡

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Had another kinda busy day today. Did a few things here. Then went for a hair cut. Now my beauty shop is like 6 miles from Marissa's, I just leaving to go there and she text me, Paige needs 3 scoops of grain to get through today and tomorrow! So I had to go all the way home and get some grain for her. Paige is coming home tomorrow afternoon. Got to Marissa's and we had some takeout for lunch. Then Paige got a really good lungeing, as Marissa's still not allowed to ride, due to the headaches yet. So I had a really good lesson on a few things I'll be working on at home. Then left there, off to the bank, the mail out my IRS and State Income tax money I owe! OUCH! Then got home and turned Indy out and while he was out, really worked up the indoor, nice and deep and soft! Tomorrow Beast will be making it's first voyage pulling the smaller gooseneck trailer. All hooked up, Kevin helped me tonight. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. What a busy day on my farm! Had some errands to run in town. Then Anthony and his wife came up to de-winterize my LQ Trailer. Didn't go as good as planned. Seems we couldn't get the hot water heater to work. Called my RV repair man, he was here 60 minutes later, ironically he was over working on one of my trainer's trailers. I got him that job last Friday. So he came over and it was a burnt out gas control valve in the unit. All fixed! Then my neighbors grandson came over and unloaded the pallet of pelleted horse bedding for me. Still can't lift that much and that heavy stuff. Then a gentlemen and his friend that I used to work with stopped by, they are moving to South Carolina in two weeks and wanted to say goodbye. Finally at 4:30 I got to sit down to lunch! Yes lunch! Boys were out in the baby pasture too, sunny and 72 degrees, getting ready for the rain tonight however and into tomorrow. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. What a day! First off the sun was out again and it made it to 72 over by Marissa and 69 up here on my farm. I'm higher up and in the mountains, always cooler here! Well we rode outside and it was great out there. And guess who actually did some loping today! Yep Me! Total saddle time was 30 minutes, lots of walking and jogging and trotting, then through in a couple of times, well maybe more than a couple of times of loping. But would only do about one lap and then walk and rest, the lope and so on. Marissa was in better spirits today, she has a follow up check up tomorrow and will know about riding then. Came home and the boys actually got their first turn out time for the year. Only in the baby pasture behind the barn, one at a time for 20 minutes, can't over due the little grass that is growing. I think Indy enjoyed it more than Bullseye! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Still tired today, and a bit sore. 6 hrs of groundwork is HARD WORK. The only time Cisco had a problem was at the very end. We were working on the 6 ways to lead your horse without using the halter (rope around each foot, rope around the barrel - no problems, he likes to follow me) and THEN, rope around the flank. He has NEVER tolerated anything around the flank area, and blew up. Steve took him hand and lunged him with a flank rope till he settled down (tight when bucking, immediate release when he stopped bucking). Then while he was explaining the technique, Cisco calmly raised first one hind foot, then the other, pulled the rope down and stepped out it.
