Hauling Bales

We finished hauling all the bales earlier this week…..all 2,500 of them are home now. 

The bales were scattered through the fields like this one, in ditches and in stacks in the fields.

IMG_3740 - 1IMG_3743IMG_374215 bales are loaded on this wagon.  This is the same wagon that has been used since I was growing up on the farm.  We also have a semi trailer that is used to bring bales in from the ditches and fields farther away.    IMG_3741A bale is put on back of the tractor spike for weight and stability.  IMG_3752    

Now I really wish I had a picture of the hay fences with all the new bales.

One BIG cow

I have driven by Salem Sue hundreds of times but can’t remember the last time I actually stopped for a visit.
