new pasture help

I'm bring my horses home soon :) the pasture is less then 2 acres so I will be feeding hay year around 24/7. There is "some" grass but of course that will be LONG gone by the time the horses get to it. I know there is some poison ivy in the pasture and I have looked lots of stuff up and everything I have read said most horses aren't effect by poison ivy. Also there is a lots of weeds around all the big trees. What can I use to kill the weeds and some of the poison ivy that's safe for the horses?

Just mow or weedeat the poison ivy and weeds. Horses won't eat them anyway, and they don't seem to be affected by poison ivy.

Yes, I would just mow the weeds. If they're choking out the grass you can kill them with a 2-4-D weed killer. It's safe for immediate grazing.
