Scott Russell has been a Redmond associate since 2010 and is now a valued member of the Equine Team.
As a child I grew up in Ogden, Utah which is “the city”. Growing up there I didn’t get the opportunity to own or even be around horses. But, every summer I was shipped off to Roosevelt, Utah where my great grandparents bred Appaloosas. They also had a small beef ranch. I always made sure that I made it there before the cows had to be moved. Grandpa would set me up with his best horse and we would spend a whole day riding. Growing up I always knew I wanted my own horse, but couldn’t make it happen living in the city.
My wife and I were married in Ogden and 9 months later had a beautiful baby boy. My wife grew up in a small rural town in Central Utah. That town’s name is Redmond, Utah. It didn’t take long after my boy was born that I had my wife talked into moving back to her home town.
After the move my first purchase was an OLD Quarter horse sorrel mare named Rose. We didn’t even have a house yet, so it really was my first purchase. Some might say that my priorities were a little off. I think that I made my childhood dream come true! Fortunately we were able to buy a house and add a few more horses to the collection.
I have been with Redmond since Nov. 2010. I worked as a miner for the first two years and since then I have been on the Agricultural and Equine team. I am very fortunate to work within this great company helping the animals I love so much.
