Just curiosity
HOA= Home Owners Association

They basically tell you what you can and can't do with your own property.

Ouch, like "you can't use it because it doesn't match with the other fences in the same road?"

It's not something that exists where I live, that's why I was perplexed :)

I wouldn't own property where others could tell me what I can do with it.

Nylon hay string is one of the lightest, strongest, most versatile substances there is. It stands up well in the weather and is still strong even with half its fibers cut or frayed away. I once used it to replace the starter pull-cord on my generator, among many other repairs and uses!

Yes, HOA = Home Owner's Association....usually only found in the suburbs, but where i am at they are 2-5 acre parcels. I am not thrilled, but this one is really quite lax unless the property gets really trashy. Probably half the owners here have horses (or livestock of some sort, often llamas) so the HOA is pretty lenient and it is hard to piss them off.

Back on topic: I think I am going to have my mother in-law show me how to crochet and I will make a rug for the tack room.

We recently used the strings to hang fly traps in the barn isle. We collect them for random uses like that and always have strings hanging in the feed room.

Twine is used to keep milk crates up in the stalls in which we put water buckets in. It is useful to reinforce panel fencing and we also thread it through tarps that we put up on the arena fence as a "wall" to block a lot of visual problematic stimulus in the neighbor's yard. It has lasted very well.

What do you do with all the hay strings? We used to have a feed store that took them and consolidated them to go to a recycling center, but not any more. The recycling center here doesn't handle this type of plastic, and I don't really want to put them in the landfill.

I have seen some people crochet with them and make outdoor rugs. I have seen some hay nets made from them...and i tried that and made a big ole mess

Any one have some creative solutions for this?

We braid it at our farm just to have it on hand...it always gets re-used [ATTACH]

Oh! It looks so much nicer braided than just a single strand (which looks redneck and ratty, in my opinion).

we use it for everything, fixing kennels, tying stuff down, really anything that I would normally use rope fro I use the twine for now. Last year we had 4x8 square bales and they have near 1/4 in twine about 8 24ft lengths per bale. I used that stuff for EVERYTHING!
