[RC] Fwd: [RC-Digest] Vol: 03.4602 limited pasture - Chipnml

--- Begin Message ---
Years ago I read in "The Horse" (magazine) about keeping horses successfully on limited pasture space.  I can't remember exact details in the article, such as how many horses on what size acreage, but what they advocated was to have three paddocks/pastures and rotate them every two weeks, so every pasture would get 2 weeks use, and 1 month rest.  As soon as the horses were taken off, the pasture was dragged to break up and spread manure around, and right before the horses were put onto a new pasture, it was mowed to about 6 inches to control weeds.  I know I have this filed somewhere since it sounded like a great idea.  Maybe they have it archived??
