Cows do well on Alsike (a white tall field clover). Horses not at all and it should be avoided either as pasture or in cured hay. Red Clover (Arlington) is not so much an issue.
I used to frost seed clover on my cow pastures (that were also cut for hay.. first cutting). I always used Arlington Red Clover because some of that hay could find its way to the horse barn.
Ah okay. Yeah, up here there's at least two different types of clover, but we've never had issues with it before. This field is mowed down to nothing, and she used to be in a field where the grass was as high as your knees and it was filled with clover but again there was no issues with any of the horses.... We had up to about 7 horses on it
