Our family has been living in the country for 6 years, but we still lack some equipment most farms consider essential for a successful operation.
For quite a while we didn't even have a truck, so we used our station wagon to pull a small utility trailer and took only a couple of bales at a time. This proves you CAN make do if you have to.
It's certainly a good thing our neighbor's equipment creates the smaller round bales, or we might have had a problem.
Samson loves it when the guys move bales ... Lunch is just underneath. He loves mice.
