    While the horses are on it, he wants to seed. Nope, they will kill the young grass by ripping it out by the roots.

    haha!!!

    No, not a good i-dee. Horses are far harder on ground than cattle - and they will just destroy seedlings and in general make a bit of a mess on a newly tilled seeded area. And, their paths, wether the feild is "naturally watered" or irrigated, will channel water (seeds in the path will never see the light of day). Dividing it is best...move, plant, move, repeat.

    When we added 3.2 acres of new pasture, we waited 14 months before we let 3 horses on the new grass about 12 hours a day, it almost killed the new grass in just 2 months, it was recommended we wait 2 years..... wish we had.... after the 2 years, the 3 horses are on it 24/7 and no problems.

    We used 75% Fescue and 25% Rye on very good soil with all the additives per the advice of soils tests.

    Dirtroadangel they would probably consume it as it came up. Or else trample it down. I would wait at least a month before letting them on it then again it depends on the type of grass you are planting. Shalom
