Please Please.
can we get it right Straw bales are what you mean.
Hay bales are from baled grass
Straw bales are the golden yellow bales from the straw of wheat, barley & oats. Smile

..............you can even get silage bales (usually they are round and wrapped in black plastic!), which are made of grass which has not been dried! Smile

I think it would be a bit pedantic to differentiate between them though................after all, a bale is a bale!

(De jŠ vue - have we had this conversation before!)

For the sake of the subject we could just call them Bales Wink

For farmers it's very important you would not want to feed cattle on straw. Tongue

I have not a single hay/straw/silage bale photo in my collection and am unlikely to find any today either. Will a couple of me, and my sister, amongst the bales do instead Smile

.....I bet all the bales you see on this thread are "straw" rather than "hay Wink

Hay making was the best time of teh year back home - when I was around 16-23 I used to work on every farm in I could, throwing bales for fun - by the end of each summer I'd have thrown tousands of bales and was as strong as an ox!

This sedentary "sitting on your arse in front of a PC" way of life has done me no favours - a good 5 stone heavier now than I was back then Sad

And unless I could go back complete with the knowledge I have now then I'd sooner stay where I am! I think that make sense.

I dare say I could find pics of myself pratting about amongst both straw and hay but I don't think that's quite what the powers that be want.

Happily I'm still the same size I was in the photos - I try not to sit on my arse for too long...... Smile

Spot the ones done after lunch. Taken in France a few days ago. Unfortunately I couldn't go back to make the most of this location & the driver didn't want to stop for more than a few seconds so they were taken from the car.
