Your voice in this piece is authentic, rustic, casual--a good read.

However, this is probably way too literal an interpretation of the proverb (take another look at the prompt).

Keep writing, keep honing your craft--you're in the right place!
I loved the humor sprinkled throughout this piece. Well done. One little hint, make sure you put spaces between your paragraphs, it makes it easier to read.

Interesting! I was facinated by the first paragraph. I'm not sure if the grass was knocked down by nature, or were you describing how it looked after being baled?
An extra line between paragraph would make it easier to read.
I could feel the heat and the prickly hay. (not my idea of fun either)
Thank you for writing this.
