Pro Tip: Don’t Body Check Round Bales

So, I’m helping move hay today at the farm, and this one bale was just a couple inches from being where it needed to be.   No problem – I crouch down just a bit, and give it one hell of a body check.  These things are heavy, so I made sure to give it one hell of a hit.

I won’t be doing that again (at least for 6 to 8 weeks) – Doc checked me out, and yep, I broke a fucking rib doing it.  220 lbs me -vs- 1000 lbs round hay bale.  The odds weren’t in my favor 🙂
