Fox tail or wild grass?

Asked July 5, 2019, 1:38 PM EDT

Can you please identify the pictures attached and let us know whether this is fox tail or a different kind of wild grass? Most importantly, we would like to know if it is not fox tail.

This is not a foxtail. I have attached links to the most common foxtails in our area for you to review.
This grass is most likely a type of Perennial Ryegrass, I do not believe from the photos that it is wheat.
