That's right Oakley's registered name is "Gutheries Leo Bars". She was named after some of the sires in her lineage and her owner at the time of registration. That is why TnT nicknamed her "Oakley"!
Travis was spinning Oakley in a circle in this photo. When they got finished spinning, Travis stated that he felt her little outburst coming from the time he was saddling her!
Before the spinning episode, Travis was working Oakley on the fence, and I could tell that she was getting better with her right turns. She likes turning left more that turning right. But when she shot past the edge of the fence into the opening...it was time for a few circles for my little girl.
I guess I shouldn't say "little" she has really got some muscle on her and will really "hulk" out when the guys get to work her more that two times a week. There is a rumor that they will be going back to 8 hour work days soon! It would be great if that happened while I am here in Pecos.
After the spinning episode, Oakley responded to Travis with alacrity.
