What really bothers me is seeing fields in my area full of weeds, and horses out there grazing or farmers cutting then selling as horse hay. The horses will stay away for the most part but a healthy well managed field should have no weeds or very minimal, usually when you see weeds it means the ph is low in the soil and that goes for many varieties, I have worked at a few golf courses and am educated in the turfgrass industry, I am relatively to horses but common sense tells me these weeds are relatively easy to manage and that's exactly what needs to happen, but not everyone has the knowledge but in today age the material is available from many sources for free. I have boarded at a few places now and neither really knows how to properly manage there fields I offer to help but they don't take up the offer, probably because I am a city boy of sorts:( but one thing I can do very well is manage turfgrasses and I hate weeds, anyways sorry for ranting but I can't wait to get my property so at least I know my horses will be eating properly, and I can have piece of mind knowing exactly what they will be eating.
