Very nice! Hay bales here are covered with a cloth?

Urias: They are the standard plastic-wrapped bales of winter fodder, silage actually, not hay as I stated in the title. You see them in fields all over England and the States too. Apparently, an Icelandic farmer thought the ones wrapped in white plastic would make a good 'canvas' for painting pictures.

Yes MaxFarrar. I saw many hay bales in a trip through Colorado, Wyoming, Montana see: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/24743682 but coudn't see any wrapped bales. It seemed to me that the machine that made the cylinders made some knitting with the grass to hold it together.

Urias: On my trips I've seen more plastic-wrapped bales than unwrapped ones. Maybe I just notice them because they stand out more. I think they are more silage than hay, in any case.
