All weed killers will require animals not to have access for a while. Generally I use Roundup.

Any area that is overgrazed will end up with not much grass and weeds taking over. Pretty darn common site at stables and nothing you can do as a boarder will abate it. Takes the stable owner/manager deciding they want grass in those paddocks and pastures. Why? Because they have to limit the amount of time and number of horses in those areas along with taking on practices to promote grass growth.

If you look at the way the OP typed in the title, you will know why I actually thought she meant this:

"There, I wee'd in the stables", meaning, 'ok, I finally pee'd in the stables.
Get it? I kid you not, that's what I thought this thread was going to be about. What is wrong with me?

I thought the same tiny. I also thought of the "herb" type too, like someone was smoking it.

the reason that came to mind is that we often do "wee" in the stalls. But "weed" (the herb kind?" well, not so much.
What's your excuse?

CountryStar - The pasture would have to be mowed. Or if you sprayed it, the horses would have to be off the pasture at least until the weed killer dried, depending on what the instructions say.

Honestly, I don't use it. Never have. But I do know several that do.

lol my first thought was the herb kind I thought she found out someone was growing it at the stable...At my old barn people would pee in stalls all the time, I never got that desperate tho I'll take a port-a-potty over a stall

Usually after we spray, we keep the horses off the pasture for about 12hrs with the sprinklers off. Then, we turn the sprinklers on and let the horses out after it has done a complete round.

Yeah, if you had these weeds growing at you stables, you would have the mellowist horses in the area. However, they would be knocking you down for more treats!! BWAHAHA!!
