Hay bales can be mined using any tool, or without a tool.
While not edible by players, hay bales can be a useful compact food supply for long periods away from other food sources.
Hay bales can also be fed to horses, donkeys or mules to heal up to 10 hearts. They are an effective method to heal horses if the player wants to heal them in a short period of time. They also speed up the growth of foals by real life 3 minutes. However, the speedup is inefficient, being less than the nine minutes you would get for the nine wheat the bale is composed of.
