GroundWork Equine Forage, North, 25 lb. is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing so far! I bought a bag about two weeks ago. I tried an area in my horse pasture to see if it would work. This time of year my ground is very wet and muddy so I didn’t need to water it. The small area I seeded took so well! I just sprinkled out the remainder of the bag and covered 3/4 of my pasture. I have three pastures total so I’m going to need to buy more but if it works and withstands the horses walking on it, to me, it is worth it! My horses live outside 24/7 so they are constantly walking on it. They also walked on the small patch that I seeded and the grass is holding up! My concern is this summer, it gets very dry here in the summer so I’ll probably have to water it then! Overall, I’m very happy with this grass seed! I can’t wait for my horses to be able to eat it! For anyone that reads this, my yard is clay and is very soft. My horses have been on this property for 4 years now. It used to be grass but they turned their pastures into mud. In the Spring, it’s like almost knee deep mud! When it rains, the horses have huge swimming pools in their pastures! (I need to level them!). I’ve tried several different grass seeds and they either don’t take or they do and just done work for my soil/clay (the roots don’t get long enough to hold into the ground) my horses eat the grass and pull up dirt with it (haha!). I live in Maine.

Asked by: Shelley74
The Northern version is not recommended for your application. It is recommended the GroundWork Pasture Grass Equnie Forage Mix South 25 LB SKU 6861909. Regular watering for the first 30 days then as needed. If the seed drys out after watering then it will not germinate.

I know the preferred time to seed would be spring, but can this be planted in late August or September in the South?

Asked by: Pstephe
Actually, the preferred planting time would be in the fall, in the south I would recommend by the end of September. This allows the seed to germ in cooler temperature without the stress of summer heat and harden in the soil before frost or snow.

What is recommended for first seeding newly cleared pasture? North Carolina RDU region. Should/can additional tall fescue be mixed to establish more durable pasture? Planted Rye to hold soil & intend to seed March 2020.

Asked by: Kenmet
If you are going to plant in that region of NC, we would suggest planting in the fall for cool season grass like Tall Fescue. Spring planting can be done but the plants need to get really established to make it past the dry/hot summers. Would need to use a summer annual to hold the soil and give some grazing this spring in summer if you wait to plant in the fall months(Sept-Oct). Also, the planting of Bermuda is a option in the spring.

Why don’t you list specifically what is in the seed mix or what is listed on the product bag? As a cosumer who has already committed to doing my seach on your web page it seems like the most obvious place to have the information.

Asked by: joy56
The content of each variety is listed on the actual bag (on the back analysis tag). These varieties, and in some cases the precent to weight, will change throughout the years production. The mix contains forage type Fescue, Perennial Rye, Annual Rye, Timothy, Brome and Clover.

Do horses need to be off the planted area and for how long? 

Asked by: Momtoboys
We would Suggest to leave off the horses tell the plant can get established. This could be from 6-8 inches tall. Flash graze once the grass has reached the 6-8 inches and pull off when plants get to about 3 in stubble height. Allow for the plant to come back and turn in again tell it reaches the 3 in stubble height this will allow for the plants to not get grazed to close and to come back at a faster rate.

Asked by: airboat64
The north version of that Item would not do well. You could use GW 25LB EQUINE FORAGE South and you would need to keep the seed moist at ALL times for the first month then water as needed. It is recommended planting after the summer months, it best to plant in the fall.
