GIVE US A HANDSHAKE
These are the faces (or in Patricia's case, the hair) behind Whiskey Bent, Inc.
OJ Mortensen is a Montana native. He rode bareback horses for The University of Montana Western and played football. No doubt about his athletic abilities. The skills he has amassed over the years come from ranching, rodeoing, 15 years of owning a construction company, and being just plain handy from the grace of God. His metal art is stunning and only rivals his ability to fabricate anything on the spot. Growing up in Great Falls, MT, he has now moved back to the town his family (Keasters) helped homestead in the late 1800's. OJ resides in the Highwood, MT Mercantile with his three beautiful kiddos and co-owner, Patricia Hammill. Along with being the head honcho at Whiskey Bent, Inc. he takes care of all the Highwood School District maintenance and is an operator for a Montana based construction company.
Patricia Hammill is a recent Montana transplant. She has spent her life chasing dreams and horses. She is a graduate of Oregon State University with a bachelors in Ag Business and minor in Equine Science. Reined cowhorses have always been in her heart, so she moved to Marsing, Idaho 13 years ago to work for one of the best trainers in the country, Dan Roeser. Finding a passion for bloodlines and an aptitude for breeding led her to a career diversion 4 years later. At Idaho Equine Hospital she handled all the semen collection, embryo transfers, frozen semen, and general reproduction working under Dr. Liz Scott. After 7 years of making top-notch foals, she decided to go and get her Masters in Business from Northwest Nazarene University. All along she has owned and operated Buckskin and Blue Photography, a side job that has led to a full-time endeavor. She now shares a life, a home, and a business with OJ.
