The puzzle of the goat, the wolf and the hay

A man wishes to cross the river with a wolf, a goat and some hay (don't ask me why!) He has a small boat, but unfortunately, he can only take one thing across at a time. What is worse, if he leaves the wolf and the goat alone together, the wolf will eat the goat, and if he leaves the goat with the hay, the goat will eat the hay. How does he do it?

Click on the wolf, goat or hay to make it enter or leave the boat. Click on the boat to make it cross the river (either way).

It is possible. Honest!

Solution - but don't click here until you've tried it for yourself. The solution is more fun, and makes more sense, after your own attempts.
