Blog 17 Converting Jin to Kilos

Posted by lauren.downes.mtp@gmail.com on June 20, 2014 at 5:20 AM

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.
