DLF HORSE PADDOCK

Long term horse grazing with an option to produce a quality hay crop.

Long term horse grazing with an option to produce a quality hay crop. Horse Paddock is designed using diploid Pernnial Ryegrasses, Timothy and Creeping Red Fescue. Sward density is a key consideration as both grazing and winter feed are often produced from the same area. Timothy is much favoured by horses and in particular gives hay a sweet smell and is very palatable. Creeping Red Fescue is key to keeping the sward together and because of its growth habit quickly repairs the turf when damaged by hooves.
