I bought my water troughs from a dude that was growing weed in them (in his college DORM no less!) my BO swears there is still residue in them and that's why my horse has mellowed out lately.
tinyliny and waresbear like this.

I think my high strung TB would benefit as long as she doesn't start getting paranoid! Although she eats enough as it is, I don't think I could handle feeding a horse with the munchies

Sorry to the original OP! Hand pulling weeds is probably the safest way to get weeds away if your worried about chemicals and your horses, there probably is something 'green' you could use, I just haven't heard of it yet.....although when it comes to large properties and weeds, Round-up is your best friend!

Get it? I kid you not, that's what I thought this thread was going to be about. What is wrong with me?
This is to the letter exactly what I thought....

I wonder if human "wee" would bother a horse if it were to be, um, "passed" every so often in a stall?

My barn has what I always though of as this GREAT BATHROOM; it's big and nice, I "wee" there before every lesson, sometimes change clothes there, etc...


I WILL NEVER WEE, OR OTHERWISE, there ever again!!! :0)

If your horses are in a stall part time, pile the manure outside on gravel and turn it so it dries out then burn it. This ash is excellent to spread on the pasture and it gets rid of the manure. I burn some of mine in a barrel in the summer to create a smudge which is a lot of smoke. The biting bugs don't like it and take off, giving the horses a reprieve.

Well this thread sure sank to the depths of toilet humour really fast didn't it!!!
I now have a total fit of the giggles.
You can buy weedkilling chemicals that only target the weeds - not the grass - like Grazon, Roundup will unfortunately kill the grass too so you have to 'spot spray it. Depends on how much acreage you need to clear
Mowing weeds before they flower and seed will help reduce further growth and if the area isn't too large you could pull by hand.
The best way to avoid weeds in pasture is to not let bare patches develop by over grazing and poaching in wet weather - not easy if ground is in short supply - and remove weeds from surrounding areas where they are most likely to blow in from

Quick clarification -- is this a stable that you own or one at which you are boarding, the phrasing is somewhat ambiguous on that point.
If it is the former, I would strongly suggest seeking the advice of your local extension agent who can evaluate the property, the tpyes of weeds, etc and advise you on what the best way to move forward would be with respect to your local soil, best grasses to grow, etc. You would want to carefully read and follow the directions on the specific chemicals you choose as the "safe" time can vary widely from one product to another. If is the latter, the answer is to defer to the actual property owner.
