In the small Texas town of Reno, between Azle and Springtown, lives a seven-year-old sorrel mare named Easy. Well, actually, Easy is her barn name. Her registered name is Fly Away Gal. She is by a stud called Superflyforawhiteguy whose parents are Dash For Perks and a Strawfly Special mare and out of a granddaughter of Dash For Cash. She stands just 15.1 hands but is built pretty stout, weighing in at 1,100 pounds. Easy is the first string barrel racing horse of Kathy Muehlen.

At this point it would be good to give a little background information on Kathy. Born and raised in Lima, Wis., she made her way to Texas as quickly as she could. She earned a business degree in Rapid City, S.D., and competed in college rodeo for the school there, but as soon as she graduated at the tender age of 21, she headed south to Texas and has never looked back.
