I like creating small landscapes. Always want a barn somewhere too. They stand out to me when I'm driving down the road. Some I've seen over the years are no longer standing or their roofs have fallen in. I have fond memories of playing in the hay mound of these gentle giants. My cousins and I would make Forts and tunnels with the square bailed hay. I don't see many farmers using this form of bailing anymore. The BIG round bales are a lot handier to move around these days. Less manpower!
