Mountain of straw

Building a mountain of straw in the barn was a delight with the hauling assistance of the Kubota. Using the pyramid approach, I was able to stack most of the bales (with Mark carrying them in from the outside).

I eventually had to relinquish control of the project to the tall guy with upper body strength, though. There's a limit to how many bales I can throw over my head and Mark's extra eight inches made a big difference putting away those last dozen bales.
