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.
gotcha on the clover. This actually looks a lot like brome not clover at all
Did some research not a legume def a grass & a very acceptable hay but had not heard of it...planted intentionally by this farmer because it is hardy
Well taken care of fields..no weeds
Just went to look at it 1st... nice bales so bought 250 hope the horses like it
