    Too bad. Hope he is alright.

    Looks as though the tractor has no cage/rops? I guess it has its convenience but seems awfully dangerous to me.

    Ouch. Use a bale spear with round bales everyone, cheaper than a flight to the hospital.

    Hope he makes it out from this one with no permanent issue. from the looks of the pictures he looks like things got worse after the bail rolled. Looks like the tractor has a double bale spear mounted on it wonder how it happened

    I'm not clear how this happened but my sincere heart felt wishes for his recovery are extended.

    The date has nothing to do with it, belief in meaningless superstitions lessen awareness of the facts that impact us and distract from the real causes of bad events.
