Fescue?!?
 
Ok I'm from Missouri, I've done as much as I could to keep my pregnant mare Cherokee away from fescue but now that the spring grass is coming in. There is a dry lot I can put her in (she is about a month or so out)...is this something I should do? I just want to make sure I'm taking the proper steps. I don't have a foaling barn and her stall is a bit small (10x10). She's got about 40 acres to run and frolic in but the fescue is scaring me:-/

If fescue toxicity is an issue there then you absolutely need to keep her away from it. Your vet can give her a shot that will help with the effects of it if she has already been exposed and feeding on mature fescue.

kill it and reseed with endophyte free grass.
