My Horse Profile

Thoroughbred from Lakeside, ON

Royal Mes "I'm getting better"

About Me

Active within 1 Day

I am from Lakeside, ON and I've been a Club Horse member for 2 years, 10 months and 25 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!!

Went to get Cisco up to ride this AM (finally has dried out)and found he had cut the back of his RF pastern, midway between the heel and fetlock. Cleaned it up, salved and bandaged it, then called the vet. It looks red and inflamed to me, want to make sure it's OK and antibiotics aren't needed. Luckily, it's not deep and he's not lame, but no riding till it heals. She'll be out in the morning. From the look of it, to late for sutures.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Finished up all the little details today around the farm. The went over and got Paige ready for her lesson, I didn't ride, my left hip is out! Oh yeah, lucky me! Did to much lifting hay yesterday! Without my back brace on! Stupid Me! Laurel and I gave her a bath, since it went up to 86 degrees today, she worked up a lather! Laurel even rode her today. Got home and turned the boys out while I hooked up the trailer and loaded my bedding, yes with my back brace on! Shaved Indy, just in case I show him in halter again. So it looks like we're ready to leave around 9 am and go and pick up Paige and her work gear and caravan it to the Fair Grounds. Catch y'all on FB and on HC on Monday night. Love, Marion and the blondes.

With my OTTB's, when one acts differently than normal it's usually pain (gastric or nerve), or boredom from not being worked. TB's like to have a job to do. I haven't been able to ride past 3 weeks and I can tell the difference in handling mine. They are being pushy, etc. Our set up is stalled at night, turned out during day. So maybe light ground work/lunging would be helpful?




Back to school is busy time! I boxed and processed orders the entire time and still didn't get it all out the door when time to load up. Ya, NOT ready for winter or Christmastime. Love the season; hate the cold. Been 4 weeks-feels like it's been forever, but I want to ride again before the snow flies!
Cleaned a bathroom tonite, and processed tomatoes, done laundry....all I had time to do after horse duty. I've always been good on time management-been told that by several throughout my life, but it seems like either I'm slowing up, or everything else is speeding up!!! Just not enough time to get everything done in the same day!
Geez!....Okay, I'm done now :) Thanks for listening! Vote, hug, and carrots too!!!

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Very productive day on the farm today. Lot's of getting ready for our last show of the season. Well last for us, plenty more going on around us, but this is my usual end of the season one. Then weed whacked the entire place, and mowed the lawn and rail on the outdoor arena, down by the manure pit and back up to the house. Went downtown for my gas for the lawn tractor and picked up feed for the horses and for the dog. Boys out and then me and Harley out on the couch for a nice nap with a cool breeze coming in the front door! Love those kind of days! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Fancy and Fatima are not up to any thing. No work, just eating.
We have enjoyed many days of mild temperatures here. Not too hot at all. But would you know it is getting hot now.
It is that time again! We are about to do some last minute back to school shopping.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Much better day today! Got over to Marissa's and most of the place she had cleaned up all ready by noontime. So I helped with dragging the arenas for her, they were packed solid from everyone walking on them. Then Paige got a work out and I got a horsemanship lesson. Got home and turned the boys out for some pasture time, of course they love that! LOL! Tomorrow I'll start getting ready to leave on Wed for our last show of the season. Well last for me, still plenty of quarter horse shows going on all around us, but financially I'm done for the season. LOL! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Strange that Smartpaks won't ship to Ca. Even if they did, I'd still go with what Cookie recommends. Covering everything is a great idea, sounds like he has plenty to keep him busy. The bad thing about stalled horses is they do tend to develop vices, but sounds like you've got all the bases covered. Noticed in the pics the stall looks HUGE.

I'M GOING CRAZY HERE....
Thanks guys for the suggestions, however, I'm in Canada and Smart Pac can not ship here. I will see what Cookie recommends. I don't think it is restless leg syndrome as Cindy suggested, he only does this at night when in his stall. He has a Jolly Ball, he has a huge stall, he has Sterly visible over the half door, he is outside ALL day long, I mean from 6:30 AM to 5 or 6 PM, he has the barn open during the day if he wants in out of the sun or rain. I have given this a lot of thought and I really think he started this when he was not being ridden last summer, now I have a NASTY habit to try to break. I'm just so angry that I did not nip it in the bud last summer, grrrr. Please Charlie stop this. We are going to cover all the exposed wood and concrete in that corner, at least if he still kicks the concussion should be less. Thanks for listening to all this, Love you all, we left a vote, Donna Lee

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Well today was the fund raiser at my trainers barn for Childhood Brain Cancer! Good cause, but the person who was running didn't really pull her weight in doing anything, prep work, setting up and cleaning up! Left 80% of it up to Marissa, hello, when I'm paying for my trainer to be working my horse, I don't expect her to be picking up tables and meats and hotdogs from the store! Then to leave and leave the clean up work all to Marissa too! Shame on her! Okay, I feel better that I vented! Oh, and I even walked horses for the pony rides for Marissa, but at least Marissa made sure I didn't have to pay for my lunch. So no riding today. Got home and then turned the boys out for some pasture time, they were very happy about that. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Certainly check with Cookie about supplements. I've seen the raves about the Smartpacks, too but I believe they are quite expensive. Is t6here room in the stall for a small or medium size Jolly ball that he could play with?

hi there :)
commenting about the kicking, I'm not really caught up in the whole story but I may have some advice. He may be bored in his stall? pasture if he can't be near other horses (I don't know if you turn them out together or not). I suggest getting him a toy such as a jollyball or lik-it toy.
As for supplements, if you haven't decided on a brand yet, I recommend smartpaks. they have rave reviews on all the supplements I've seen and they really listen to the customer. smartpaks come in autoship, so they ship every 28 days and free shipping for smartpaks over $40 and if you have a commercial barn it's free shipping on everything if mailed to the barn. Hope this helps some and just didn't bore you to death :) but if you haven't already, check out smartpaks!
left you a vote, good luck!

Glad he's kicking less, and I'm sure when he does, there's less concussion to his joints.
Busy around here. Getting a new roof on the house and shop (the barn roof has a few years left). Also, still struggling with putting up my daughters above ground pool-our brick hard sloping ground has been soooo hard to level by hand. I hate that she didn't get to swim all summer break (goes back to school Tue). She never gets the summer vacation her friends get because we can't travel,with all the critters to care for. So I was hoping the pool would make up for it.
Well, Saturday awaits. Hope you have a good weekend.

FEELS LIKE FALL, ALREADY...
Good Morning, I don't want to keep going on and on about the kicking, it has improved, but not all gone yet. I have given this a lot of thought. One thing I read is that if they are not getting enough exercise they can start this vice. I think last summer when I was off with my arm surgery, may have been the start. I'm just so mad at myself for not paying more attention...I'm researching joint supplements, 'cause I have to assume he has hurt himself some, I'll talk to Dr. C, any suggestions?

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. What a chilly, chilly day! Woke up and it was only 47 degrees and the high today was only 68 degrees with overcast and a wind, so it felt a lot colder! Had a really good ride on Paige today, love that my stirrups are set back even a little further back on the tree. Really makes a difference in cueing her for loping and departures. And my legs and lower back don't hurt. I would say they are back 1 inch more than usual, so it's not a really big thing. Got home and feed and afternoon hay lunch, was tired from doing a bunch of things to help Marissa get the farm ready for Saturday's Fund Raiser for Childhood Brain Cancer Research. I'll be there helping out from 9 to 5 tomorrow. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Sorry I am so sporadic right now. It's after one in the morning and still got to work early; didn't even get to see my husband today before he left for work...grrrr! University bookstore slammed! Got out 2 1/2 hrs late than norm. I do not have "set" hours.
No horsey time for me the past 3 wks and I'm going nuts about it , I can tell; husband too, coz' I get after him more than usual, haha!
Bub's forehead is healing up well, missing me bad-got lots of kisses!, and Ella is a butt, to put it mildly, coz she really needs to be ridden. My youngest daughter has done some groundwork of walk, trot, and squaring up with both, when schedules permit.

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. Much cooler this morning with a really cool breeze, only 53 degrees when we feed the horses. Had a really good lesson on Pagie today! Marissa is working on getting my legs back even further under me for both pleasure and especially horsemanship! So she's tied the stirrups back to hold me back, at first it was strange, then I got used to it. Just hope that my hips and lower back can take it. I told her, lets start slow, like 15 or 20 minutes of punishment and work our way up to condition my muscles and bones! LOL! Got home and turned the boys out for a couple of hours. It was really nice today, high of about 76 with a light breeze. That storm really reeked havvic on Long Island with 13+ inches of rain in less than 5 hours! So much damage, and so many cars and trucks stranded and engines flooded, just ruined! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Pleasant this AM, though near 100 this afternoon. So funny this AM, Scott went and got the last 2 bales of hay we need, and Meg was at the fence nickering for him to bring one over for her. She's having the worst time with the diet, after she eats her tiny portion of feed, she goes and stands at the fence and stares at the lawn. Cheryl & Cisco

Hi Charlie, here's a vote for ya. It was one of those days, rain on and off, but we did not get the heavy rains that the coast got! They got about 5.5 inches along the shore line again. Major flooding! But the weather was very unsettled and I think that's why Paige was having a marey day today. First one in a long long time! So I can forgive her! Got home and it was just after another rain burst, then the sun came out, so out went the boys. Couple of hours of nice green pasture time, they loved it! Love, Marion and the blondes.
