I've heard too that if lightning strikes these bales or stacks, then it can make them catch on fire. I guess after our experience here with fire early last year, that thought with the hay would scare me... :(

Thankyou, WitchGirl. I'm feeling well today. It's Friday night at the moment. The week goes by very quickly these days. Have a great weekend... :)

There's obviously some confusion here between haystacks, is shown un the photo above,and hay bales. Hay stacks are typically made by hand,the hay piled up around a center pole in a shape that will shed water in the manner of a thatched roof. Hay bales are made by a machine in either the old fashioned rectanglar shape, called square bales, or the more modern and larger cylindrical shape, called round bales. The advantagte of the round bale is that it will shed water and can be left in the open, while square bales must be picked up and stacked in a shed or barn. We'll scout around and see if we can find some photos.

Finnish haystacks: Of course, one hardly ever sees these any longer, the modern method of preserving cattle fodder is quite different, and large, white, plastic-wrapped 'tractor eggs' dot the fields. Organic farming is experiencing a slow but steady return, so perhaps scenes such as the ones in the two pics will be more frequently seen again...

You are welcome, PictureGirl! I am well, hope that you are too :). Have a great day!

Hi WitchGirl. Hope you are well. You live in a very beautiful country. In America and here in Australia, haystacks are either square, rectangular and/or sometimes in a circle as well. I've never seen them in the shape you have them in until today. You learn something new everyday. Thanks, WitchGirl. Take care..:)

Hello, PictureGirl! I am from Romania and in here the "usual shape" is like those in your picture. At least it's the only shape i've seen until now in almost every countryside place here. :)
2010-04-16 17:25:24
I wonder why these haystacks then are this shape and not the usual square or rectangular shape ?
2010-04-16 17:04:22
lol Fancy haystacks. Tnx 4 laugh of a day! :) And I have a question, what do you think about this structures, what are they?

After using my super duper investigative skills, I have found that they are Romanian hay stacks ;-)
2010-04-16 15:27:28
I grew up on a farm, and those do not look like haystacks....certainly not Canadian ones ;-)

Iīve lived two years in the countryside and all the stacks Iīve seen were round :-| Romanians and their fancy-shaped haystacks :P
2010-04-16 14:09:18
Or, in this case, two ?
2010-04-16 14:08:49
You city girls don't know a haystack when you see one ?
2010-04-16 13:51:08
The brown grassy structures look alot like huts, but are they huts ? Not too sure... (?)
2010-04-16 13:38:58
Amazing how it looks a lot like the Brazilian countryside... And what are those two brown 'grassy' structures in the background, u know? Iīve seen it in other photos of Romania but never bothered asking...
