Rotational grazing is a ranch management practice that we use with our yearlings. We have several fields that we rotate the yearlings through, moving to a different field every few days. This allows the yearlings to always be on fresh green grass, which meets so many of their nutritional requirements. This system also gives the grass a resting time which encourages new growth. It’s amazing how quickly the grass regenerates.
Moving yearlings every few days provides many opportunities for the kids to log a few more miles in the saddle. It is an easy ride, perfectly suited to young kids and young horses.
Today was a windy day, with gusts that sent my daughter’s hat skipping across the field as we rode home. It was Dad to the rescue!
