Question Paddock Size, Dirt Work, Etc.

Im making some new paddocks. We've cleared a 160 foot by 160 foot space. My original design was going to be each paddock 75X150 for 2 paddocks with shrubs in between. But I'm thinking of doing 4 paddocks 40X150 temporarily to try to establish grass and allow for more rotation. I only have one horse going in this area so he would be in each section a week or so. I have terrible clay soil. I've just moved here and am struggling to try and maintain grass in this area. Should we mulch or just disc? Anybody know of grass that can maintain in terrible clay? I was hoping for Bermuda.
