    Hauling hay

    Anyone else moving hay?



    Got that load today, took two of us about an hour and a half to load. 300 square bales at 50 lbs (minimum) per bale. Hopefully we're set for the winter now, but I may put out a round bale or two if we don't get some rain just to take a little strain off the pastures.

    I just got a load yesterday. I was putting it up in my barn, half way done, started noticing a few wet bales, then a few more, then some moldy hot ones, then a few more. Went and got a moisture probe...25-35% . I ended up putting it all back on the trailer and taking it back I was so F###ing P###ed.
    I pulled the wagon with my 4720, that was the best part

    Wow, that sucks. I'd have been upset, too.

    I can guarantee mine are dry, as I threw or stacked about all of them!

    Bad hay is so aggravating. Hay in general has to be the worst headache with having large animals.

    It's not so bad, if you're set up to handle it.

    Granted, it can be hard to see that when you're throwing bales off the trailer and stacking them by yourself. Something about being set up to handle it?

    big bales

    Yes even here in Alaska we do hay. I drove down to Delta Junction and picked up a load on the deck over flatbead this last weekend. I've been getting the large (800 lb) square bales for years. They stack nice on the trailer but definitely require a tractor to move around. I got a set of forks for my tractor and it goes smooth. The 800lb bales are right at the upper limits of my 3005 though. I put in 10 bales and have two more loads to go (10 bales each). It seems like a fall routine for us. It is definitely fall up here and the leaves are turning yellow on the trees. Summer is just about gone. Sad sigh. Filling the barn with hay seems to be part of life when you have horses.
    Thank goodness forr no moist bales.

    I'd love to see pictures! Not only because we all like pictures, but who doesn't really like pictures of Alaska?
