Build up sandy soil?

What is the best way to build up sandy soil? Some areas have no vegetation just sand. What can I plant to build up the soil for hay? I was thinking of Hairy Vetch or Crimson Clover.

Pasture grasses for horses, and serpentine soils?

Hi - We are moving back to the Illinois Valley after 4 years away. When we lived in O'Brien for 17 yrs we had an old flood plain valley and good grass. Here in Maine we have learned a lot about Orchard Grass and Bluegrass, and have learned just what is involved in making good weed-free hay. Now that we are looking again I'm wondering if we end up on serpentine how that might affect the horses. What are the best pasture grasses we can grow in Oregon? I don't expect to still make hay, but I know knapweed will be a problem, and I hope not star thistle. In Maine we learned the only way to eliminate bedstraw was to spray. As I recall that was also the case in Oregon with knapweed & star thistle. Any publications you can steer me to or advice you can give, will be appreciated! Thanks, Kathy Ethier, Harmony, Maine
