Horse pasture is designed to produce a specialist horse sward that is nutritious ,palatable,persistent and with the correct seasonal growth patterns to meet the needs of the grazing horse.
Traditional grass seed mixtures are meant for sheep and cattle and are less suitable for grazing horses.
The bite of a horse differs very much from cows.Cows use their tongues for eating grass,but horses use their lips.
Due to this,horses can graze a pasture much shorter than cattle,and can graze down below the growing point of the grass plant,damaging it.This causes slow and problematic re-growth of the sword and creates open and bare patches in the sward which fill up with problem weeds like ragwort and chickweed, and weed grasses like annual meadow grass, which is a low yielding un-palatable grass.
The lifespan of such a pasture will be shortened,Superior Horse pasture,resolves these problems and allows for healthy , sustainable paddocks.
