making hay

  1. beautiful photos. How exactly do you use the hay hooks? I’ve seen them around, but never actually in use. In the picture where he’s unloading, it looks like he’s using one at one of the bale to pick it up, instead of putting his hand under the twine…maybe?

    1. Thanks, beautiful subject matter! I can’t use hay hooks myself as I’m so short but my taller husband and son use them. They can use one hook in a bale to pull it into place or off the stack. Two hooks, one in each end of the bale and they can lift and swing the bale onto the trailer, stack or conveyor. Basically they use the hooks instead of the bale twine to handle the bales.
