Weeds taking over Horse pastures

Asked June 20, 2015, 6:26 PM EDT

Just this year I have a weed that is taking over my horse pastures. It has small yellow flowers on it and a pod that has a seed in it that rattles when shaken. I think it is a form of rattlesnake weed. How do I get rid of it?

Might it be "Yellow Rattle" as described in the following article?:

If not, it would be helpful if you could provide a photo of the weed for identification purposes.
