My name is Chris Bolduc, originally from Virginia. I went to college at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Sculpture and Painting. My partner and I were looking for a different way to live and moved to Washington to find it. We ended up in Stevens County after discovering a property that was ideal for raising and keeping horses. My partner is a horse trainer/seller.
