Manners.... until you have them, I am not wasting my time brain storming ideas with you.

Everyone good now? :) Just in case people were still unable to follow: Me no have tractor. Or trailer. Or any other mechanical device save for a pickup truck. Yeay.
It's good to see you assume we are all mind readers and clairvoyants.........

No, I just think it's interesting that part of my original post must have been invisible, because people apparently are missing the "do not have a tractor" and "bales delivered down the road" lines, though every time I look at them, I certainly see them. I also think it's interesting that when I point that out, people suddenly become offended. "Attitude"? Honestly? I fail to see how I have been offensive. I have not cussed anyone out. I have not called names. I have not insulted anyone. I have not turned my caps lock on, nor have I even used an exclamation point.
Perhaps you dislike my commenting when people clearly have missed part of my original post? I suppose I could simply ignore them, but that seems rude. No one likes to be ignored. I think it is beneficial to them in the long run for me to remind them to read more carefully before posting, as it saves time not having to re-clarify what was already stated originally.
As for assuming you're all mindreaders, well, I'm sorry if it was a bit much to ask for people to apply logic and common sense to their train of thought. :) Honestly, if you can't make the jump from "don't have a tractor" to "don't have access to a tractor" based on my original question (which was ideas on how to move bales with only a truck), then I'm seriously doubting your imput would have been helpful at all.

Now, if there's anyone who wants to actually be useful, rather than getting their panties in a twist, feel free to throw some ideas in.
I asked you 'why if your pasture is two blocks away can you not have them delivered there' and 'can you get the round bale put in the box of your pick-up?'.....legitimate questions.....you did not say 'delivery guy will not deliver to my pasture'.......you're asking for logic and common sense, yet you fail to type out a logical post.....if your so 'smart' you go figure it out....the answer is easy but you won't be getting it from me.....

Yes, you're right, those are questions. Again, don't you think that if I was able to get it delivered to my pasture, that I would? Don't
You think if I was able to have them loaded into my truck, that I would have them do so? Did you actually want me to type out my whole life story or something? Would you have actually read it? Most people would not have. Instead, I have you a puzzle, and some pieces to put in the puzzle. Goal: get the bales two blocks down the road without the use of a tractor. That seems simple, right? The reply could have been," Drag it on a skid", not "...why don't you just have them in your yard?".
And just in case you're wondering, I find it amusing that you posted to tell me that you knew the answer, but weren't going to tell me.

Just going to say this is hilarious. I would die laughing if I saw someone driving down the road pulling a roundbale on a piece of plywood. I have no better ideas myself though. Roll it down the road?

If the bales are round and tight enough, you could roll it. I doubt they will be delivering large squares, they are more expensive to make and harder to store because they really must be inside to stay horse quality.

If the hay is being delivered 2 blocks away, how are they getting the bales off the trailer over there? I would think a few extra dollars would get them delivered where you want. If it takes all kinds of human effort to move these bales without equipment the extra money might be worth it.

And that is exactly how I see your attitude, and that is EXACTLY why I replied that way, because I knew it would amuse you........Goodluck, don't let one of those round bales roll over you....
