The hay bale looks like light brown fondant with little random lines marked in it with a knife.

I agree. It looks like a golden brown color with carvings in it. Then the painted something in the cracks. You can see it dripping down the side. You could see if there are an mats with a similar pattern in them.

AYeah thought it was most prob flat fondant marked out and painted thanx for the help. Going making my fondant a light brown and do random lines around the side and stickle the top some how lol and then get a sponge and maybe dab abit of a darker brown to create the shadowing look may look if there's a mat for this style first will make it easier if there is lol Will post a pic on how it turns out when I've done it.
