Hi, Kevin here. We’re into the second week of the A to Z Challenge, and in case you’re just visiting, I’m a six year old ginger and white guinea pig. This blog was started by Fred and George, Mummy’s very first guinea pigs. She writes books about them too.
Our A to Z Challenge theme is “Our Favourite Things”
H is for Hay
Hay is marvellous stuff. It’s best straight from the bag, although Mummy doesn’t understand why clean looking hay that’s been in the cage for an hour or two needs to be supplemented with some from the bag. Well, a guinea pig can never have enough hay (and neither can a rabbit or a horse for that matter).
Hay is great to eat, full of good fibre and tough stalks to help our teeth work properly.
With the help of George, Humphrey, Hector, Oscar, Midge, Victor, Hugo, Percy and me, here we demonstrate its uses. (mouse over the picture for the caption)
Midge and Hector make friends in the hay-in-a-box
Percy lazes on the hay
Humphrey hides in the hay
George uses the hay houses with a new view
Victor and Hugo have a birthday haycake
Oscar uses a hay house upside down
and, if Mummy can get it to work, here is a video of me eating hay. I’ve got a touch of conjunctivitis, in case you wondered about my weepy eye.
