A healthy well maintained pasture should not need spraying each year; however weeds can begin to grow in even the healthiest of pastures.
This is not a problem and can be dealt with by using herbicide that is suitable for the eradication of the particular problem. This is performed when the weeds are actively growing. It is vital to control the growth of weeds as without management, they will take over your grassland. The main weeds encountered are thistles, docks, buttercups and nettles. Although not necessarily harmful to horses or other livestock they are unsightly and can diminish the quality of grass in the paddock.
Ragwort is very poisonous to horses. Sprays can kill the weed, but it is vital that the dead plant is removed completely before horses return to the pasture.
