Drafts4ever.. when you move will you have a 'dry pen'? Before you put the horses out on the grass give them thier morning hay after they eat put them out. If it is spring grass only at first an hour or so. Then increase the grazing time. I have five out on pasture, they still get some oat hay or grassy alfalfa in the morn and evening. And of course a free choice salt block and water :) I cannot wait until the other pastures are ready for turn out ! I make sure the rass is 4 - 6 inches tall before turning out the horses, so they don't destroy the root systems, or get any dirt while grazing.
