    [RC] Another feed question - alfalfa - Rebecca Rohwer

    Hi all,
         I need some information about alfalfa.  I have just purchased 4 acres of what was/is an alfalfa field.  I will be fencing it for 2 horses.  I will also have a corral so the horses will not have the total run of the whole pasture.  Of course, it is winter now, the field had been cut so there is just stubble.  Anyway, I was just wondering about grazing horses on straight alfalfa this next summer.  What do I need to know?  I'm familiar with grass hay fields.  Do the same principals apply, or what.  Would I be wise to try to seed some grass in it as soon as I can?  What do you all think?
