Our farmer friend baled the pastures so we got to fill the barn with hay again. This was our second cutting for the season so we have a lot of hay. We have sold a few bales and will sell a few more and have plenty of hay leftover for our 4-H animals in the Spring. Here are some pictures from our afternoon of stacking hay in the barn and some fun videos at the end because there is always fun to be had on the farm.
Stacking hay bales is a lot of work, but when everyone works together it goes pretty quickly and there is a lot of fun to be had too.
This one did not want to be left out.

Had to stop and put air in the wagon tires.
The most beautiful view.

All in a day’s work.
If you are going to stack hay bales, you want to wear thick jeans, long sleeves and work gloves. I had on thinner, more fashionable jeans that I wear all time and actually went in and changed into some old work jeans because the scratchy hay was going through my jeans. Good work gloves are a must. I bought several pair on clearance last year so we would have lots of gloves for everyone in the family. You can get kids sizes too. I keep them in a drawer in the kitchen so we always know where they are.
There is a lot of fun to be had when bringing in hay with the family, like hay rides.
This one wanted in on the action too!
We were out getting hay so we picked up the trash can from the end of the drive on the hay wagon.
The boys had a blast tackling hay bales. So much fun to be had on the farm!
