Winter's Feed

I'm sure yesterday's cows would be quite happy with some of this hay this winter.

  3. I think I shall never see a bale of hay or straw again. And I was around when the first wire-tied baling machines were invented and came to town during the Second World War. Up until then the hay was pitched from the field up and onto a hay wagon where a man or boy forked it on the wagon making a huge load of loose hay that was pulled off by rope onto the barn floor where a fork dropped down on it and that was pulled by rope up into the hay mow where it was dropped again and a man up there used his pitch fork to level the piles of hay out.

    Big story for a lot of hay.

  4. I can dimly remember old-fashioned hay stacks. But I have come to like the rolls too.

  5. I don't go back quite so far as Abe, but I do remember many a hot dusty day stacking the square bales on a wagon and then stacking them again in the barn. When the mow was getting full it could be extermely hot working up next to the roof. Thank god and whomever for inventing the round bale!

    Nice shot Faye. I really enjoyed you're comment and others on my chubby indian. "Ate the whole buffalo".......LOL

  7. Hi Faye,

    An excellent photo, and I'm like Salty I'm glad me don't have to handle the square bales any more.

    There are a lot of fields around here that look like that one.
