Weed ID please

Asked May 27, 2020, 8:39 AM EDT

This weed grows in the horse pasture. You don’t usually see it when all the grasses have seed heads but eventually the horses eat around it. Can anybody help me identify it?

Washtenaw County Michigan

The plant in the pictures is Red Sorrel. A soil test of the pasture is recommended to correct soil fertility as this plant typically persist in soils with a low pH.
