Many feed stores have "Hay Cubes" for feeding horses ... as-is or with a little judicious glue and paint, they'd probably do the trick in a pinch.

Or, some white glue and water mix, a large plastic ice cube tray, some real hay, and a pair of scissors would probably do the trick.  Just remember to spray the ice cube tray with some kind of non-stick coating first.

     Mine are made of larger sawdust particles glued. I've been thinking about trying grass clippings, dried then glued.

I don't know if they have them out all year, but last Fall I bought some at our local Michaels Craft store for use on my "Pumkin Express Train". Wal Mart had some, but they were  too large. The ones at Michaels came in a pack of 6 or 8 bales per pack.
They look very good sitting in my short sided gondolas.
