A Hay Bale is a block added in 1.6.1. It is created with nine pieces of wheat. It can be used as a decoration block for animal related buildings (e.g. Stables, Barns). When placing hay, it will behave much like wood blocks in that they will orient themselves according to the player's location relative to the block.
They also serve the purpose of allowing baby horses (foals) to grow faster over time. In addition to this, they will heal full grown horses while the horses do not have a rider on them. For this reason, it is ideal to keep hay bales near horse stables in order to act as "healing stations" for horses on the edge of towns.
- Creating Hay from wheat is biologically/technically impossible as hay is a completely different type of plant than wheat.
- During the snapshots of Minecraft 1.6, the Hay Bale was called Hay Block.
- The Hay Bale can be placed in two different ways which are vertical and horizontal.
