Team 52 - Lazy A **
Hi--I’m Jenny Andersen from Blue Hill, Nebraska. I live on a farm (Lazy AA Land and Cattle Co.) with my husband (the farmer) and my 2 sons (18,7). I have a full time job in town. My husband also runs a side business doing trenching and dirt work (Andersen Custom Services). We raise Red Angus/Red Limousine cross cattle. He is very tolerant of my 'horse addiction' but will tell me that he can have another pair for every horse that I get rid of--not gonna happen, buddy!
'Sedona' Star Dust is my gray AQHA/FQHA mare, she is 11 and after a pretty solid two seasons as my main trail mount ready for about anything. She is turning into a solid trail partner with continued effort on my part.
Roo is our miniature that is just great driving. We are having a lot of fun with him.
My son’s AQHA Palomino gelding Sunny has been a great back up horse for other kids around my place but he fell in love with Xena the Percheron mare we bought to drive and I don’t think is going to be back in the saddle on that Pali anytime soon. I am really getting into driving and enjoying that so much more than I would have ever thought. We are currently looking to add a wagon to our barn and hope that will be part of my miles this year in a much bigger way.
I have 10 horses and too many to go into here, but I am starting a Missouri Fox Trotter this year so perhaps he may get some mileage yet this year if it works out. I have several really nice horses and will be trying my hand at some open shows and foundation quarter shows also.
I have tracked miles for 2 years and did much better remembering my tech last year. I would say by the end my goal was to not be LAST! But it did really help me track my time/miles and I actually turned in sheets to the APHA and AQHA programs I am also signed up for. LOL It was a lot of FUN!
I enjoy trail riding with my friends, improving my riding with some clinics and would love to think about doing some driving obstacle courses now that I have tried my hand at the Horse Expo! I find that making a schedule for new places I want to ride and planning my riding helps me make it a priority.
I love to ride and camp and enjoy telling stories around the fire. I have a few good ones! Hope to see you on the TRAILS!
