About DawnHoof — Dawn Jenkins, Lady Farrier
Who is Dawn?
Farrier (Horseshoer), Horsewoman, Entrepreneur, Photographer, Writer.
Before Dawn was 20 she: set out alone for 10 days on her horse, Rebel, into the wilderness of the Los Padres National Forest (outside Santa Barbara); worked as horse wrangler/trail guide for the UCSB Recreation Department; moved to Enumclaw Washington – built an 18′ Sioux Indian Tipi – lived in her tipi in a cow pasture; and worked on a Dairy Farm – in the milking parlor, milking cows – taking care of “the Girls” (all 120 of them!).
In her 20’s Dawn: jumped out of a perfectly good airplane; got her Private Pilot license; started her own fashion business; flew 300 flight hours throughout Southern California; and bought her yearling Appaloosa/Running Quarter/Thoroughbred/Arab mare, Fanta, the foundation of her four generations of endurance and carriage horses.
Now she: rides and loves her four (Fanta-descendant) horses; trims and shoes horses in Southern California; and has completed 14 years of flying to Hawaii every 6 weeks to trim and shoe horses in Paradise! Yahoo!
