making hay while the sun shines

The grass that was cut last week in Little Forest has dried out well over the weekend. It’s been turned to help it dry out thoroughly 

 and then rowed up so that the tractor and baler can drive along and pick it up. 

The baler compresses the hay into a large bale before tying strong twine around it and ejecting it from the back. 

The bales are then picked up and put onto the trailer to cart back to the barn where it will be stored for at least six weeks before feeding to horses.
