There are thousands of varieties of grasses, grains and legumes. When selecting the right mix to put into your paddocks, you need to consider many things: the condition and type of the soil, the current percentage of weed contamination, the climate, haymaking suitability and most importantly what species of animal will be grazing the pasture.
Because of their different digestive systems and evolutionary needs, pastures that are good for fattening cattle or sheep are often not suitable for horses. Cattle can thrive on high sugar varieties such as rye and clover. However, because they have evolved to eat low sugar, high fibre grasses this combination can be detrimental to horses causing behavioural issues, laminitis, equine metabolic syndrome and a host of other physical issues.
