Janathon Day 13: Donkeys and potato shaped animals

I asked Twitter if they wanted sheep, cows or donkeys. A few people asked for sheep but Ben asked for donkeys and so I thought if he can be arsed to run 255 miles (not a typo) so far for Janathon, then the least I could do is be arsed to go and take a photo of a donkey or two for him.

The donkeys were photo’d after we’d been to the farm shop where I bought a potato shaped like a rabbit (I originally thought it was shaped like a pig but have since changed my mind and decided it was a rabbit).

And a potato shaped like a hippo.

I didn’t buy them just because they were animal shaped, honest*.

I saw some sheep too.

I didn’t see any cows though, so it’s just as well no one asked for any.

This bike ride was done in my new Adrenaline Women’s Iso-Viz Jacket. As you can see from the photo, it has nice long sleeves (so many jackets have sleeves that are too short for my gangly arms)

and it’s slightly longer at the back, making it perfect for cycling.

It also has taped seams to make it extra waterproof. The only thing I don’t like about it is that there are no side pockets. It has a back pocket and a chest pocket and that’s it.

So, we’re nearly at the halfway mark for Janathon – keep up the good work!

    Hippo = Angry/Evil Manatee. The one behind it = Guinea Pig.

    The hippo shaped one reminds me of Barney (the purple dinosaur) :)

    It’s not everyday you get animals on your run, at least for me. Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.
