Sapling inventory

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 a player's location relative to the block.

Uses

They 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. Hay bales also neglect 80% of fall damage when you fall on top of them. Along with a couple of other blocks, this is useful for saving the player from falling in the nether, as water does not work there (except for cauldrons, of course).
