We look at this and think how much better methods there are now.

The driver in the photo is thinking of how much better this is than earlier methods.

They haul horses differently now too. Here's a picture of my Grandfather hauling his horse in 1936.

Those were beautiful horses.

What I see around me is folks hauling round bales with no rigging at all. I see round bales on the road and in the ditches all the time that have fallen off a trailer. One of my neighbors hit a round bale that fell off a truck with her car, damage to her car was extensive but luckily she had on a seatbelt. That is a lot of mass to hit. I see trailers flying down the road with round bales stacked two rows high with no rigging what so ever.
