Makin’ Hay While The Sun Shines
Nope. Around my parts, I’ve been seeing this going on the last few days. And caught this scene late Friday afternoon.
According to Wikipedia… “Hay is grass, legume, or other herbaceous plants that have been cut, dried, and stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for grazing animals such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep. Hay is also fed to smaller animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Pigs may be fed hay, but they do not digest it as efficiently as more fully herbivorous animals.”
And, given where we live, what with all the livestock and horse farms around us (and because folks more knowledgeably than me told me so), that’s how I know they are bailing hay here, and not straw.
In any case, it makes for a pretty landscape scene.
This, too, is New Jersey.
