Big hay delivery today, ten huge bales that should keep the sheep fed for a good while. Time for the tractor to earn it's keep and for me to get to grips with manoeuvring it.
Unfortunately we'd been let down by the fabricator that was meant to have delivered a bale spike and pallet forks to help with just this task. Luckily the hay supplier could bring a spike along and so there was just the small task of reversing into each of the 300kg bales, raising them up on the rear link and trundling down to the polytunnel.
One or two got a bit mud splattered en route as the track is so wet after all the rain, especially when they tilted on the spike. But eventually all ten were safety stored off the ground on pallets and under cover.
