A good thing, indeed!!! We have a Belgian also, and that girl can eat!!!
We have 3 pastures to use, all 3 are huge, but we only use one which I am estimating the one we are using is 10 to 12 acres....we thought it was big enough for only two horses. We were wrong...they've severely injured the grass in the field...it may need reseeded come spring....
I feel so bad about it....but we have never had to do pasture management before....so I asked the property owner...he said the one pasture was surely big enough for only two horses, so we didn't rotate..... and now we have a pasture that may not recover.....i blame it all on the Belgian!!! She is a feathered lawn mower!! And if she's hungry enough she not only eats huge mouthfulls of grass by the blades, she'll pull it out by the roots!!
