Yesterday Alison Beck who is the Cornwall representative for the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth came to see us. We had an intensive few hours talking donkey feet and grooming and feed. More of this ( fascinating) detail as we progress. Last night we attached to a farm gate our mini electronic weighing device. The panniers are much smaller than we hoped for and we are going to have a problem getting everything in. As we weighed bag after bag we were horrified by the amount of kit we had accumulated. It seemed to have expanded beyond all reason. Then Jeanne, who is of a scientific turn of mind,checked the calibration on the machine and found we we were weighing in Chinese ( or maybe Japanese) Jin. When we changed the setting to kilos the weight tumbled. Relief all round. I think there is discreet amusement on the farm campsite here. This is a working farm where animals are animals and live in fields. By comparison we are treating Geronimo like a new born baby.
