    Horses are sensitive. Talk with your vet.

    I would rotate pastures if you spray.

    i think you can use 2,4-d in pastureland (if there is no lactation). Read the label

    Is that a spiny-type thistle(which may have creeping rhizomes?) Or plain curly dock...or? Is that a daughter plant on the right side of the pic--is it possibly the result of creeping rhizomes? Now cover up that drainage tubing with soil or loose crushed rock. And grow more grass. Way too much soil is visible.

    Make sure your seed is no endophyte
