ON JULY 3, 2010, THE PHOTO BELOW WAS POSTED with a title "OOPS"! 

Damaged Fence

 

THE RUNAWAY BAIL OF HAY!

I'm sure that many on ActiveRain have been curious about the condition of the fence that was felled by a loose bale of hay. 

 

It was and still is harvest time in Loudoun County.  That field of hay was probably the third cut for the season.  I drive by that area about 4-5 times a week.

 

 

 

 

NOVEMBER 3, 2010, what a difference 4 months make!!

The new fence looks like it will withstand the onslaught of a bale of hay or two.  You have excellent follow up!

It's a good thing to mend our fences.

Good luck and success.

Lenn, I don't think that most people realize that the round bails of hay are much bigger and heavier they are than the rectangular ones. Good thing that no one was in its way as it rolled toward the fence.

Norma.  Indeed.  The old one was clearly in poor shape.

Lou.  Yes!  Always.

George.  Absolutely.  In fact, that huge bale could easily have rolled onto the highway.  Fortunately, it was "lost" on a fairly level spot.  If it had gotten loose from up the hill. . . . .

Jennifer.  Thanks.  That's exactly what came to mind.

Dorie.  Indeed.  They weigh quite a bit and clearly are dangerous when rolling down hill.

Evelyn.  Thanks.  It does, doesn't it?

Damon.  Goodness yes.  If wood wasn't treated, in our climate, it would be termite food in a couple of years or sooner.
