Quality, Alfalfa & Timothy Bales
SWEM Horses can eat Quality, Alfalfa and Timothy bales or slabs to satisfy their hunger need. These can be consumed by horses when:
- Right-click placed in Slow Feeders and Paddock Feeders
- Right-click placed on the ground
- Right-clicked with a Bale / Slab in hand on a hungry SWEM Horse
Quality Bales are the most nutritious bale type - combining the values of Timothy and Alfalfa in to one hearty bale. Timothy and Alfalfa are less nutritious.

Oat bales and slabs cannot be fed to horses. They are a way to condense your bushels for storage, or used in crafting sweet feed.
At the small cost of 1 string per bale, converting bushels into bales is a space efficient (inventory) way of storing dried forage. Alternately, the bales can be placed down as a physical stockpile of food for immersion of requiring space to store food for animal consumption and restocking when supply runs low.
Bales have gravity like gravel and sand. This feature makes it possible to:
- Store a lot of bales vertically in silos or large piles of hay which drop when items are removed from the base
- Avoid 'floating' hay piles when bales are eaten from the base of a stack
- Drop bales from haylofts into the barn, or directly into horse stalls
Bales can be placed in all three spatial dimensions, like vanilla logs, bone blocks, and hay bales.
If you find an issue, please report it to our bugs channel on Discord. We ask that you look to see if your issue was reported first!
- [-] Full bales float above bale slabs (if a bale is eaten into a slab) - this is not avoidable currently unless the player simply does not stack their bales, or only stacks bales that horses will not have access to eat from.
