Wallowa County, Oregon, USA
First I'd like to thank you for visiting my page. This is my first time building a webpage for myself and it is a work in progress. Please check back for more information and features as I get things set up.
My name is Brenda and I asked around and most people described me as a Jill of all trades. Right now I'm a live-in ranch hand, backcountry packer, a part time farrier (horseshoer) and veterinary assistant in beautiful Wallowa County Orgon. I've also been known to dabble in cadastral land surveying, fisheries biology, weed management, road construction and a few other things.
I have always had a passion for travel and beyond the shores of our beautiful USA, I've been lucky enough to visit Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Tanzania, Belize, Dominica, and most recently Patagonia Argentina!
This website is was originally set up to help you follow my journey and support me as I entered the Gaucho Derby in March of 2022. However I have learned that there is a lot more to be gained by having a website and sharing adventures. More adventures are coming soon! Please explore my site and enjoy!
