Horse Pasture Managment

[Post to this category]
From: Dena McCulloch
Gladstone, IL
I purchased approx. 6 acres and currently it has tall grass in some areas, quite a few weeds and some really over grazed areas. Sandy soil, one small wooded area of brush, small cedars, oaks, cactus and poison ivy.

I have 2 horses and a mini donkey.

What is the best way to get adequate grass to let them graze approx. 12 hours per day?

I don't intend to harvest any hay since it is such a small acreage.

Should I have it tilled up and replanted? Should I mow it off and spray to kill weeds, then overseed?

What is the best pasture mix to plant?

Any help would be appreciated.
