Belinda Says Hay: “Castle Giveaway Collab”

Belinda Says Hay weekly blog "Castle Giveaway Collab"

Hello. It's Belinda.

I have big news. You are going to like it a lot.

But first I want to thank everyone for all the comments and emails about my blog last week.

In case you missed it, I asked for advice about Daylight Saving Time. Which starts or ends in seven days. 

The whole thing knocks me "out of whack." So I asked how others get through the "jet lag" and I got some excellent tips. 

I included one of the messages at the end of this blog.


OK it's time for the big announcement.

"Hold on to your hat."

I teamed up with my friends Hashbrown & Oatmeal (@thebrekkiebuns) to give away a 10-piece Habitat Hideout Castle.  

One lucky winner will get:

- 5 Habitat Hideout Castles
- 4 bridges/ramps
- 1 hay manger

That's more than $300 retail value.

Here's what one of the pieces looks like:

Habitat Hideout Castle

It's a very nice-looking piece of furniture in my opinion. But that isn't the best part. 

The Habitat Hideout Castle is hand-crafted in the Small Pet Select workshop. It's made to last. Professional grade wood. No screws, no glue.

I'm super excited to collaborate with Hashbrown & Oatmeal on this giveaway. They're two lop brothers living in the "big city." New York.

You are going to love their photos and movies. They live up high with lots of windows.  I can't imagine.  

To see how they set up their castle—and to enter the giveaway—visit @thebrekkiebuns) on Instagram or on TikTok.

Open to residents of the US and UK.  

The giveaway ends at midnight EST on Thursday, March 31.

I've been working on this "collab" since December. I hope you like it. 

OK new topic.

I mentioned I had an A+ message about how to get through Daylight Saving Time. Sent by my friend Sadie and her roommates Marilynn and Rebecca.

They even included a photo.

Sadie really knows how to work the camera.

Also did you notice?

 "I spy with my little eye."

I spy a stash.

Pretty smart to put that in the photo in my opinion. 

I spent an hour trying to enlarge the photo. To see what kind of hay Sadie buys.

Anyway enough hay talk.

Here's the message:

" ... We adjust our buns' schedule when the time changes in increments, moving the meals and medication schedule forward or backward (depending on the season) by no more than 10-15 minutes each day over the course of a week.

If they are in the middle of a medical situation or a high shedding period when the time changes, we go even slower, adjusting in increments over two weeks."

I have to say this next part carefully. "To put it mildly."

I like being a rabbit. If I had the chance to be a human I would say "no thank you." Not to be rude it's just better to let things be.

But if I were a human I would do that thing Marilynn and Rebecca do. Move the schedule bit by bit.

Maybe someone who's already a human could try it over the next seven days. No person in particular. 

Well, that's all for now. I hope you have a good week.

"Hit the snooze button."

Sincerely, Belinda
