I've always known "red top" to be red clover.
Be aware that red clover can grow a fungus on it after a rain, and if harvested for hay when it has the fungus it can cause your horse to slobber when eating it. Most people say it's not harmful but it is pretty ugly looking to see your horse slobbering uncontrollably. There are some people who say if you horse happens to be highly sensitive to it, it can make them slobber to the point of becoming dehydrated, but I've never seen it happen that badly.
Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.
