At Nature’s Seed, we understand that horses aren’t just animals. They’re companions. That’s why horse owners demand the highest quality horse pasture grass seed that will provide palatable, nutritious forage for grazing. Our team of rangeland experts have designed a horse pasture seed mix for every region of the United States. The following considerations were made during the design process for each regional blend:
- Environmental elements such as soil conditions, sun/shade preferences and heat tolerances
- Genetic attributes such as nutrient content, grazing tolerance and disease resistance
- Water requirements
Unlike other grazing animals, horses are selective grazers. This means horses will eat the most palatable plants first, such as the young soft grasses, while leaving the less palatable plants alone. Horses are also very particular not to graze were they defecate. This can often lead to overgrazing in some areas of the pasture.
To help prevent overgrazing, horse pasture grasses need to be productive all season long. They also need to be highly palatable to ensure even grazing throughout the pasture. Grasses should be aggressive and able to tolerant close, heavy grazing.
We've taken these factors into consideration and developed our regional horse pasture seed blends. Each horse grass seed blend contains a mix of several high quality grass species, as well as a proper percentage of legumes to keep your horse happy, healthy and ready for your next adventure together.
