I wish someone would GIVE me one of the large round bales.
There are lots of them around here unused, for one reason or
another.  But getting it here would be the problem.  (We
have a small car.)

Old, spoiled hay (unsuitable for animal feed) sells for $2 a
small rectangular bale here (rural northern PA).  Still not
cheap in any reasonable quantity.
