Last weekend the horses got to go out in the back pasture.  They were so excited that they had to run around like nuts for a few minutes.  I don’t know what it is about new fresh grass but you would think they would want to start munching right away.  Instead they have a good romp then get down to the business of eating.

I have 2 fields in the pasture management rotation.  They do not go out on these till the grass has grown to 6 inches for a second time. I cut it down to 3 at the beginning of May and then it grew back to six lusher and fuller.  The sand lot behind the barn is known as an Animal Concentration Area (ACA). We don’t expect this area to grow much and they are fed hay while out there.
