Hello. It's Belinda.
It's Friday and I'm pooped.
That's not a bad word. It means tired.
The past month or so has been "a lot" if you know what I mean.
First Little Fang and I thought we were living with a vampire. Had to get that all sorted out.
Then I find out one of my blogs was stolen and stashed in a time machine. Still no answers about that from you know who. ("ech eam.")
Last week I tried to write in a polite way about some St. Patrick's Day nonsense my roommate cooked up. I did the best I could.
And of course the toughest part of the past month. Losing my friend Jester the Giant Rabbit. I still can't believe it.
So today I want to write about something easy. I hope you don't mind.
My blog is called "Belinda Says Hay" and that's exactly what I'm going to do. Talk about hay.
If you're in a hurry, you can skip this whole blog and check out the company hay page.
Otherwise here are some of my "scribbles" about hay.
When I say "timothy hay" I mean 1st, 2nd and 3rd cut. I like them all.
My roommate tends to "fill the tank" with 2nd cut. It goes with everything.
If I'm in the mood for a little more stem I go for 1st cut. For variety, I toss in some 3rd. Whatever's in the pile. It's fun.
Don't tell the boss I said this but my favorite hay is alfalfa. It's like candy.
I'm not allowed to have it every day because of the calories. My roommate says "It's for baby bunnies." Which makes me want it even more.
I could eat the whole box.
Have you ever tried oat hay? It's chewy like 1st cut timothy but the flavor is like oat hay. I don't know how else to explain it.
The stems are tasty but so are the oat pieces. Good for a mid-afternoon "pick me up."
Some roommates are allergic to timothy hay. So they buy orchard hay instead. "Everybody wins."
When I'm "foraging" for a midnight snack, I'm usually digging around for some orchard hay. I don't know why.
Orchard hay tastes like the outdoors.
"Hold on to your hat" because it's time to talk about gourmet hay.
This hay has everything.
It's a mix of 2nd cut timothy hay, 3rd cut timothy, alfalfa hay, orchard hay, lavender, raspberry leaf, strawberry leaf, rose petals, plantain, bay leaf, dandelion leaf, chamomile, oat tops and lemon verbena.
And a pine cone on top.
If you're not hungry from reading all of that you're a lot stronger than I am.
Well I think it's time to "log off."
My stash is calling my name.
