“I think he’s jist thrawn, there’s nae benefits o stooks ower big roond bales.”
stooks: tied bundles of cut straw (sheaves) stacked – as in 10 to 12 lent against each other – in groups with the grain to the top in a field to dry. The binder pulled by the horse that cuts and binds the crop can be seen in the background. The one I knew had been adapted to be pulled by a tractor.
“I think he’s just very very stubborn, there is no benefit of stacks of sheaves over big round bales.”
The Scottish Word: stook with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
