I plan on planting the new mare/foal paddock with Endophyte free fescue seed.

So if I breed my mare again in the future will it be safe for her to be put in that pasture for the last trimester to graze ?

I just figured I might as well sew it in something that I would not have to worry about later on, so will this work even if a field below is sewn in regular fescue ?

I have been researching how to treat our pastures for this fungus. Around here we have to put our mares on dry paddocks because of this issue. So I am just starting down this path with fescue. I would love to learn more!

Just a thought: We have SUCH an issue in the midwest with this and our farm has loads of it as well. We are re-doing our farm (one field a year). We have been using timothy seed on some fields that we HAVE to have because you can top dress it and you don't have to disc or turn the top over (killing your grass out). Timothy will actually "smother out" fescue pretty quickly.

We are doing some of our fields that we can afford to turn over and disc and planting them in brome.

One of the best resources for finding out how to turn your pastures over to "horse friendly" environments is to contact your local feed/seed stores and have them give you their advice and/or your local farm extension center/agriculture office. These guys are a great wealth of knowledge and can hook you up with resources.

In South Carolina, the endophyte is rampant. One thing is that I have known people that try to eradicate it and/or plant new endophyte free pastures. The seeds from the infected stuff will travel and down here, anyway, they have problems with it getting back into the new pastures again.
