There is something serene about dotted hay bales on the horizon.
Driving country roads is mesmerizing. As the roads stretch on before you in gently sloping ribbons, you pass by cows at fences as they chew their cuds and slowly nod; you wave at the horses, donkeys, and goats as they frolic the fields and graze the pastures.
And dotted amongst all the farm animals and barns are huge hay bales, rolled until they are necessary for extra feed.
You can't call yourself country if you don't love seeing a hay bale or two.

There's nothing more comforting than wide open spaces dotted with barns, animals, and hay bales. These rolls of hay, compiled of grass, legumes, and other plants, are cut, dried, and rolled to store on the land for the animals to graze on.
They are imperative for grazing animals when the pasture doesn't provide the correct nutrients or if the weather doesn't permit grazing access.
But they really are just symbols of the countryside and hard work; that's why we love them and the scenes they help distinguish.
