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 27 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 honey. What a day, cold again, only 34 when we got up. High winds and cold. But I did get to Lunge Indy and then ride Paige in the indoor. Doors banging and clanging. An excavator working 100 feet away and dumping things into a dump truck. We worked on our Horsemanship Patterns for our show next weekend. Hopefully our temps are going to start to improve again and go back to real spring time weather. Love, Marion and the blondes.

They have moved the severe weather to Sunday, but am still taking no chances. Staying home tonight, still have rain moving in. Everything is ready, just have to get dressed, feed, load and get on the road if the clinic isn't canceled. Will miss spending time with Steve and Amanda tonight.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well I think I've slept through Spring, Summer and Fall, cause Winter has made it's return! Complete with on three different occasions today, snow squalls! Yes, posted a picture on FB! I was getting Indy ready to take to the indoor to lunge and opened the door and went, OMG it's a white out! We waited it out, only lasted about 20 minutes! Got him done and then took Paige in a lunged her and did showmanship only. The winds were blowing like crazy and I didn't want her getting spooked by the doors blowing around, although she never cared. Just so close to next weeks show, I didn't want to ask for trouble. Then we got another snow squall as I was driving the tractor to the indoor to drag it later on! Tonight we have a frost warning of high 20's! Like if anyone finds Spring, please sent it this way. Also Indy and I would like to thank you all for voting for him for his run for HOTM! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was run down town and get Indy and Bullseye's grain. Then go and fill up the Beast with diesel so he'll be ready to load up this weekend. I'll use ole Blue if I need to run out. Then home and worked Paige on the showmanship patterns that will be at the show next weekend. They had 2 out of 3 patterns posted all ready. Tomorrow I'll ride the horsemanship patterns and put them together. Only one pattern out for Ranch Horse and it's an easier one for us! Thank goodness! Will put bits and pieces of that together too. If I do the entire pattern as written, somebody becomes a smarty pants and tries to do it for me! LOL! What a thunder storm came thru just as I was walking out of the barn this afternoon! OMG! Going down to 33 degrees tonight! OHY! Love, Marion and the blondes.

gosh, sure hate to hear the bird flu has turned up in another farm, and chickens too. there must be a spike in bird flu among wild birds as well. dang. hope you're able to enjoy your extra days, even though it's rough on the budget. at least they're coming at a nice time of year. and you're right, you'll be pulling OT again soon enough.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains stopped, but not after a really bad thunder, lightning, high winds and heavy down poor around mid-might! Sun came out around 10 am and it was nice all day, a little windy, but that helped dry it up a little. Ran down town and did some errands. Got home and lunged Indy, he's still in shock that he's being worked 5 days a week! LOL! The saddled and lunged Paige, she's still a little stiff necked, but she's had 5 days and it's back to work! Suck it up Buttercup I told her. She was good under saddle, didn't want to lope off when asked, found out that yes you will, vacation is over. Then all went well. Did some horsemanship patters with her. Good day. Then went for a mile walk to burn a few more calories off. Gotta drop 6 more pounds by next Wed! LOL! Love, Marion and the blondes.

ANOTHER FARM UNDER QUARANTINE...
Wow, this not good, I did see that there is bird flu in several US states, this affects import and export. We have a chicken farm added to the list here. We are working 4 days a week for the next 6, hopefully things will be under control then, Looks like lots of PB & J and soup for us... Love Donna Lee

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Monday off for me, and Indy, but Paige got to work on the lunge line to keep her moving and try and loosen up that neck of hers. Rain, rain and more of it. Just about an inch as of noontime today. I'm hoping that since tomorrow is day five, she'll be better. Last year it took five days for her and the three for Indy. She's just so sensitive to the shots. In the fall, she only gets the Rhino/Flu and that takes her three days to get over. So like Larry says, if we space them out, she'll be sore 3 days at least after each dose. So 5 days and be done with it. She lunges very willingly and does her showmanship work, she just can't do lateral and down motion of the head. But she's loving the extra hugs and kisses and treats! LOL! Love, Marion and the blondes.

3 days of ain and wind on the way...
Charlie's diet was a bit overwhelming at first, but I got this now...So, twice a day her gets, 4 cups of alfalfa pellets, one scoop loose salt,(50cc) 2 scoops of stabilized rice bran, 3 scoops of oat flour, two scoops of ground flax seeds, two scoops of ground pumpkin seed(hulled raw) I soak this to make a mash and he gets top dressing of one scoop of a pro/prebiotic plus 1/2 cup of dried cabbage. He love it...he is also still on a low dose of the Omeperozole. doing good. Love Donna Lee

Glad Charlie is doing well. Feels good to be able to get everything cleaned up. Looks so clean and new. We are still having high winds. Got to ride Sat. all of a sudden we had 45 mph winds. Jax did really well. He had more trouble with the limb on the ground then the wind itself. Our ground is still soft. We could only ride around the perimeter. Vicki & Big Jax

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.

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.

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.

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.
