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 2 years, 11 months and 24 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

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. What a busy day again, and will be for a while! LOL! Took some hay down from the hay barn to the horse barn. Did a few full wheel barrels of wood to the stacking pile. Then rode Paige, before my back got to tired. LOL! She was really good, love that girl! Then rested a little while and had some late lunch. Then turned the kids out for a few hours and yep, stacked more wood. Have about 1/2 stacked now! Lots more to go! LOL! It was nice working outside, only about 72 degrees if that, sunny and low, very low humidity! That was the best part. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Busy day today. Woke up to only 41 degrees, coldest one so far! But it was sunny and got up to 71 degrees, felt good! Had a fantastic training session on Paige, really working on the fine tuning of steering her with just my legs and heals and all while on a really drapped rein! The she was giving me tons of kisses while we hand walked to cool down, she wasn't hot, but we always have our bonding walks after a ride. She's so loveable! Then I got two cords of wood delivered and starting stacking it. Have to remember tomorrow to get out my back brace, the bending over is killing my lower back! Kids were out with fly sheets, small stable flys are out and biting like crazy! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Warmer this morn, but raining and about 54, but only went to 64, very damp out! Well today due to lack of time was a lunge each one and then did showmanship lessons with both of them. I spent the morning at the Ford Dealerships signing my life away. I ordered it! Gave a deposit and should know more in three weeks of about how long for sure. He figures at the latest Thanksgiving! Something to be really thankful for on this Thanksgiving! It rained this morning and pretty hard for a while, so the grass is looking more lively! LOL! It was still slick when I got home, so they didn't get pasture time. Gave everyone a couple of flakes of hay in their slow feeder bags. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi! Had a good weekend with the oldest daughter and son-in-law. They came up from Tenn to help my husband put on brake lines on the 2003 Chevy half ton we just sold them. Our "used car lot" (driveway) out here is getting emptier finally! Late last year sold a '76 Nova. Then the middle daughter totaled her Grand Prix this past May, and now sold the Chevy! Don't worry, we still have plenty-my truck, his new truck, a car and a van lol! Ya he got a Power Stroke diesel for a better tow vehicle. The one we sold shouldn't be pulling such heavy loads as we were, so it's better for us, and the kids needed a truck that was reliable and not torn up. Of course we gave them a family discount! lol!
Better finish up and get some stuff done around here. going to have a garage sale this Saturday and the next since I was too busy all summer. Hope to make $$$! Left a vote!

Left votes for everybody. How's your week going? We are fine. The prednisone hasn't helped BJ as much as I'd hoped, so I have a call back in to the vet. One day BJ looks good, the next he comes up with flaired nostrils again.
Hope you have a good Tue. Take care.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Busy day today, no riding, monday day off for them and me. Had the chiropractor this afternoon and then Wally World for grocery shopping. Did finish detailing my truck, gosh it looks great! Now I don't want to sell it, but have to! Need a dually with better braking power for that big trailer, have a few rally far trips planned for next season and I just want to be really safe with braking, that big trailer with two horses goes about 15000 pounds! Had the horses out all afternoon after getting home from docs and errands. Nice cool day, only hit about 66 degrees, turned out with sheets on, gotta keep that nice slick coat going. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. This is really getting old hat fast! I hope that they get this resolved on Monday a day of work for them!!! Well, it was only 44 degrees when I got up! BURR!!! Warmed up to about 68 which was nice. Had a really nice ride on Paige, Indy said please mom, day off today for me, two in a row was enough! Okay Indy you win, only cause I have a lot to do outside today. I went over to Kevin's and got the quad and really raked up the indoor. Then turned everyone out. Then it was time to wash the truck and run over the entire body with a furniture cloth wipe, did you know it's a fast polish job on a car or truck and does the job! Then took a bunch of pictures for E Bay and Craig's List. Now hopefully my friend will come over this week and help me set it up FOR SALE! Going Tuesday to order the new one! Yep, gonna do it!

HI Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well it started out misty and yucky, then the sun comes out, then some rain and the humid and sunny! Didn't get to ride today. Went with Marissa on a road trip up to the vet clinic to have Wally's stifles injected. She likes to have company when traveling, she hates driving alone. So I get adopted for the job, I don't mind, we talk over game plans for next season and all kinds of neat stuff. It's nice to have a trainer that likes your company more than your money! Last one was like money first, friendship last! We stopped at this really great deli that makes the best subs going! OMG I had the Italian, didn't know that is was a foot long one! Ate half of it and that was 5 hours ago and I'm still full. I was so stuffed when I got home, I couldn't ride! So I just turned the kids out, don't you know, 20 minutes later down comes the rain! But it was a light rain and only lasted about 20 minutes. Made their coats nice and soft. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. What a beautiful day today. Nice and cool to start and didn't get all that hot out at all, just nice and comfy at about 76 degrees. Had a really nice ride on Paige, working on fine tuning that neck reining going over poles and makes sharp turns without dropping that inside shoulder. Then had them out all afternoon, fly sheets on of course. While they were out, I cleaned out the interior of my truck and detailed the leather seats and all around the inside. Took 5 pictures to put on e-bay when I list it. It looks brand new! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Still working on getting the shed cleaned up. We went through it and saved most of the Christmas ornaments. Sadie had to go through them, too. She kept redumping them out. She found a big red bow she liked and dropped it in the mud. What a character. She's ate up with bug bites, Spraying doesn't really help. I feel so bad for her. Leaving a big hug and a vote.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. No riding today, her day off and mine for running errands. Also had the farrier out mid morning to shoe Paige and trim Indy, so that took a couple of hours. Did get them out all afternoon then and while they were out, I dragged the indoor with the big tractor and fluffed it up for tomorrow's ride. Looked like it wanted to rain all day, but never did, and didn't get very warm either, high 60's only, kinda a chilly. LOL was getting used to the high 80 and low 90 days! Wish I could solar heat my indoor and barn off of them for the winter. Oh heck my house too and big time my body! LOL! Love, Marion and the blondes.

We normally don't get much rain. We go for months without any. This summer has been anything but normal. The rain started Monday morning and hit us hard. We're okay, but the flooding in other places, did a lot of damage. Homes were flooded out, cars were buried up to their windows and the Interstate, 1-10, was flooded out and shut down in places. Never seen such a mess. Canals and sewers overflowed, too. A lot of people weren't able to make it to work and schools were closed. People were catching fish in the streets and in their yards. Leaving love and a vote. Thankful for God's hand of protection.

Glad to be back on HC and horseback after a long drought of not enough time due to work and life in general.

Gonna ride the Bub tomorrow, the Bee has a swollen leg under and including the hock area, which I vet wrapped ice packs on, and need to remove yet. I have an ice boot for front legs, but not for hind-guess I need to shop again...darn!hahaha. My start to the week is good; hope ya'lls is great too! Have a great night!

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Nice cool sunny day, like only 52 I got up and never went above 74 all day, with a really cool cool breeze. Had another good working lesson on Paige and then broke for lunch. Turned them all out and mowed the lawn. Down to mowing the lawn about every 10 days now instead of 5 days. No rain and cooler days is slowing it down. Only that's also happening with the pastures, they are going to be to the nubs soon! YUK! Going down to 50 or less tonight, barn is holding at a nice warm temp and hopefully I won't have to go back down at 10 pm and sheet them. Love, Marion and the blondes.

here's a vote for Charlie! how's he doing with his dressage? I've been using Jane's Savoies lessons for a little while now and they've already helped me tremendously! I probably wont take it to a very high level because im wanting to 3 day event Teton so he wont need to go to the grand prix level or anything! the two main things I had problems with on Teton is keeping him on the bit and collected canter. now he does both easily with no fuss! he's a very sweet smart horse so that helps too.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Had a great day, the storms last night really cooled it off. We got hit hard about 9 pm with thunder, lightning and heavy rains and blowing. Cooled down to 56 when we woke up. Only was the high 70's and nice breeze. Got a really nice training session of trail course and then horsemanship patterns, to pleasure work. She was really on today. Then while Paige was on the wall, I mowed the small pasture and side and front of the indoor, it's neat again! LOL! Then it was turn out time for them and football time for me! Jets won, Cowboys lost and hopefully my third game will be the Colts winning that one. Oh and the Stealers won they's too. So far 3 out of 4 of my teams won. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Thanks. Miss Allie did great with the saddling, never came unglued at all. Now it'll be even harder to wait till she's old enough to ride, at least till next summer.
I hate storms too, they can be so destructive. I pace a bit to look out of the windows for signs of trouble because the weather alerts don't come out till the storms are on us or even passed. This year has had less violent storms than usual, and that suits me fine.
Hope you have a good Sunday.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Had a really nice day trip with my trainer Marissa to watch the Halter Futurity Show in South Jersey. Should have put the Mare in the color Futurity, could have probably won it. Pay out were averaging about $1100 for first place! Darn! Oh well! Felt bad that the kids couldn't get out, but I did find out we had a heck of a fast moving storm blow through and with my luck, it would have been just when I turned them out. So I was happy to be out enjoying myself with friends down there. Also won two of the silent auction items bags of goodies! So for like a total of $24 I got over $150 worth of useful equine products! Happy about that! Lot's of really nice bags of treats too in each bag. Kids will be happy. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Horrible for a musician to lose some of their hearing. My prayers are with Trevor. Meg conquered her fear of the ball today. Took out a halter and lots of treats, she pretty much just walked right up it, after a few minutes she touched it. Nearly had a disaster when Cisco pushed in and shoved the ball at her, but she pretty much stood her ground and got lots of treats and praise. Then Nugget came over to see what was going on, all 3 followed me and the ball when I rolled it back up to the fence, with Cisco occasionally shoving it. Looks like rain tonight.
