What is Hay?

Hay is a type of dried grass that is used as food for animals, especially horses, rabbits, and guinea pigs. It is also used as mulch, as bedding for animals, and in crafts. Hay is usually harvested from meadows or fields that have been allowed to grow wild. The grass is cut and then dried in the sun or in a hay barn. Once it is dry, hay can be stored for long periods of time. When hay is fed to animals, it is important to make sure that it is free from mold or other contaminants. Hay can also be used to make straw, which is used for construction or as animal bedding.

What is the purpose of Hay?

The primary purpose of Hay is to feed animals. Many animals eat Hay, including horses, cattle, goats, donkeys, and rabbits. Hay is fed when pastures or rangelands are insufficient or animals cannot graze year-round on them. When the grass isn’t available during the winter period, farmers and ranchers typically use Hay.

Straw and Hay are different. The leaves of grass and other plants (such as alfalfa) that makeup hay are used to feed animals. Straw is made from the stems of cereal grains and has little nutritional value. In general, straw is used as bedding for animals to keep them warm and dry.

Hay Drawings Step by Step

Step 1

For the topmost portion of the Hay, draw a broad inverted U-shaped line.

Step 2

Draw vertical zigzag lines at the space left after inverting the U-shape.

Step 3

Draw two diagonal lines in both directions. Ensure that the tips of each diagonal line are curved. 

Step 4

Repeat the previous step by drawing zigzag vertical lines beneath the first zigzag line.

Step 5

Repetition of step 3. Mark a diagonal line at each end. You should ensure that both lines have a slight curve at the ends

Step 6

Continue drawing vertical zigzag lines in the space left by the first zigzag line. Ensure that the lines are connected with short grass to give a sense of the irregularity of Hay. Make sure it is wide enough to meet both edges. 

Step 7

On all three segments of the Hay, draw some straps. Begin by drawing the belt on the left side. Irregularly draw some short wavy lines across the strap. 

Step 8

Draw similar lines on the right side of the Hay to give it an original appearance. 

Step 9

Check your drawing against the picture. Do they match? Does the drawing resemble the image? That’s it.

Step 10

The time has come to color. We have chosen light and dark brown. If you want it to look shady, you can use gray.
