We have a small pasture for our 2 mares; we have a slight problem at one end of the pasture the mares will only eat the grass there and its going bare and to add the pasture on this end was washed out a little this spring. On the other end it has weeds in it and they wont eat it. So I was wondering could we fertilize it and what kind of grass seed do we use?
Will the fertilizer hurt the pregnant mares and when could we let them back in the pasture?

thanks

Daniel,
Go to your local feed/farm store. Most of them can give you information on what is best to plant/seed in your area. There are horse safe fertilizers out there that you can broad-spread in your pastures...We do ours at least twice yearly. I want to say we use 16-16-16, but I could be WRONG...I'd have to double check.

Down here in texas, we seed Bermuda in the spring, and use Rye in the fall. Both grow great, but they are indicative to Texas and tolerate the weather we have.
If you don't have any luck with feed stores, contact your county agricultural extension office. They will have all the information you need free of charge.
