Have you ever seen hay bale sculptures before? For those of you in rural agricultural areas, they may be nothing new. But for me, these area something new I have not seen before.
Cindy Rozich, a student of many of my lessons, brought this fun art to my attention when she sent me some of photos of the incredible hay bale sculptures from her family’s farm. Her family has been stacking hay bales and making these creative works of art for over twenty years. This season’s display includes a John Deere tractor and Bessie the Cow, who is over 20 feet tall and is created using a mixture of round bales and large and small square bales.

Painting hay bales and putting them together is a lot of work, but it sure is fun watching everyone take pictures of them! The kids just love them!
After all the pumpkins, gourds, indian corn and corn stalks are gone with the beautiful Fall Season we will decorate “Bessie”, our cow, and the John Deere Tractor for the Christmas Season! I was just amazed of the amount of people that stopped by to take pictures last year on New Year’s Day!
Now that this project is done, I’m hoping to try some pumpkin carving!” said Cindy.
Cindy’s photos inspired me to look up some other examples of Hay Bale Sculptures and I discovered the Montana Bale Trail. Located in central Montana’s farmland, the event takes place annually on the Sunday after Labor Day and features hay bale sculptures displayed in fields along a 21-mile loop of highway.
