Spraying for false dandelion (the tall dandelion)
Although I cannot seem them yet, are they (false dandelion) growing at this time? In other words, if I spray now, will it be effective on them? They were a serious problem in my pastures last year. Is Weedmaster the best product for them, or something else? I'm talking about horse pastures. The horses are off the pasture now and will not go back on for a few weeks after spraying. Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. I"m not sure how to interpret "keep animals off until the plants are completely gone." Are they ever completely gone? Seems like they would be there until ... they decompose? Which takes ... 6 months? year? Would I be better off to mow with a bagger? I've done that before but it takes forever to mow 2 acres with a yard mower. Tractor mowers don't come with bags. Thanks with any help for my dilemma, I know false dandelion is not good for horses.
Thanks again, appreciate your explanation!
A friend suggested I should try rental goats. Sounds environmentally sound. Thoughts? I know, it would likely cost more than another other options ;-)
Goats would work but since the plants are perennials, they would have to make sure the plants are totally defoliated for maybe a year (just guessing). That would exhaust the root system and kill the plant.
