We try to keep our pastures brush hogged after things get to be in the 1-2' range. For one, we planted grass seed this past spring and letting the weeds get too tall chokes out the good grass. Then we also have grasshoppers galore so keeping the pastures maintained helps with that. And riding gets a little tricky. Our black clay gets a lot of cracks and holes in the summer from drought and I like to be able to see these. So I don't know, it may not be dangerous so much, probably more of a nuisance after it gets too tall. They don't really eat the tall stuff anyway.
