Golden Hay

Look at all our beautiful hay! The cows will be happy with us this year!

I love it when it looks as golden as this (always reminds me of the fairy tale, Rumplestiltskin), but I love it even better when it’s all been carted and stacked in rows, away from the weather.

Holly, the pregnant Kelpie, has taken to sitting on top of the new bales, watching as the hay is carted into the stack – she looks rather relaxed… I wonder if she’s had a visit from old Rumplestiltskin! Maybe not, I haven’t seen any extra gold lying around anywhere, unfortunately!

  1. It looks much nicer when done with out the blue baling wrap! We had a huge race horse goanna under our hay stack last season. It was amazing to see him laying out in the sun on a hot day, sunbaking. I don’t think he was too happy when we had to use ‘his’ bales to feed the sheep!

  2. I think it depends on what colour the manufacturer is making! A couple of years ago, we had bright pink! I’m sure Mr Racehorse was most upset when you took away his home! Did you see my blog on the racehorse that climbed up our house wall?

  3. Can’t say I have ever heard of, let alone, see pink bale wrap!! Everyone down our way just uses blue from what I have seen. Do you keep all your hay or sell some of it?
    No I didn’t. I will have to look that one up! Sounds interesting! Thanks

  4. Hi Kelly, no we keep all our hay – we’ve got heaps of cows that need it, and if it’s good pasture hay, we also feed it to the sheep. If you search under ‘Just Visiting’ that should find you the blog about our visiting Racehorse…
