Hay Fever

As you know I live in Athens, home of The University of Georgia. One of the agricultural clubs at UGA held a hay bale decorating contest. The UGA Ag. Alumni decided to take part in the contest, so on Sunday I helped decorate a hay bale. Well, I was actually 20 minutes late, and I showed up just in time to see the finishing touches being applied to the hay bale. All the hay bales are so cute, so I thought I would share them with you.

Our hay bale was a piggy bank. Here is me with the piggy bank. By the way, this picture makes me realize that I need new jeans that aren't so baggy. The next picture is of the group that created the piggy.

There was also a chicken hay bale.

A spider.
A witch.
There were two hay bales decorated like a bull running over a person.

There was also a hay bale that depicted a man palpating a cow (one way you can check for pregnancy in a cow). I left that one out because it involved a man having his hand up a cow's rear.

The sorority I used to be in also had a hay bale. It was decorated like a smore, but it just didn't photograph well. I also left that one out.

If you live in the Athens area, these hay bales are located on South Milledge Avenue near where South Milledge ends into Whitehall Rd.
