    You bush hog the weeds down, then reseed the pastures.

    I see you already have a thread about this. Why make another one?

    Perhaps you should refer to all the replies that were given in the last thread you posted on this same question: there I weed in the stables

    Maybe because all the answers involved 'work', and the OP is hoping for some kind of magic bullet so they don't have to actually break a sweat?

    Whoa there. This is my best friend you are talking about here. You don't have any right to accuse her of this. Cassidy is rather forgetful, and rarely checks her email, so she must have forgotten and made a new topic.

    EDIT: It's not like she got very many helpful replies anyway. Everyone was talking about how she forgot to add an "s" to "weeds" and were just talking about drugs.

    Easy way, weed killer. Keep the horses off of it! Round up has a 'burn off' time
    It will kill every plant that gets sprayed. Wait the time specified as listed in instruction phamplet, lightly 'disc' the area, plant your seed, make sure it is a grass suitable to grazing, is endophyte free if for grazing, spread the seed, cover the seed with dirt, add a light layer of mulc or fertilizer for lawn starter, water and cross your fingers. Oh,, don't walk on it !

    Every county in the U.S. Has a County Extension Office. Every extension office has information specific to their locale, and sometimes even manpower and money, to help people reduce weeds and improve pasture.

    I overseeded two weekends ago....got new grass coming up now.

    I mowed, then spread the seed with a broadcast seeder pulling a drag harrow behind it.

    I put out Kentucky 31 fescue and annual rye grass at 30 pounds per acre.

    This summers drought left me with almost no grass....so I'm happy to see it doing so well....now if it'll just rain.

    I plan to spread fertilizer in the next few days.

    I'm sure you'll get your rain. We went about 103 days with no rain (really unusual for us) and good old mother nature has been making up for it.

    Do you all use your own horses dropping to fertlize your fields, or do you use something else or lime it?
    Personally, im getting ready to clean off a pastue of about 4 acres with a dozer, so there will be nothing left but top soil. There is mostly briars and talls weeds on the pastue right now, but it is some very rich soil.
    Ill probably go with Kentucky Fescue to seed it back down with, and ay on it this winter, so that it comes back up in the spring.
