Horses - Diet and Nutrition/breed of grass


hello ma'am, what grass can this be? should the grass in the pasture be short or long? just mention the length of grass blade please!!!

Hello Rohit,

Thank you for your question.  It is almost impossible for me to distinguish the types of forage the horse is grazing on in the video.  One would have to have a close-up in order to do so.  I'm not sure what kind of comments you're looking for with regard to pasture length.  the field does not appear too overgrown nor does it look overgrazed.  But I can't correlate the grass length to a suggestion on forage quality.

Thanks, Corlena
