I'm not sure what this is really called. We call it foxtail barley and once it gets to this stage it is unpalatable for the sheep, in fact most grazing animals. The farm yard area has had the sheep grazing in it but they left any of this stuff and it makes everything look untidy so I was in that part of the farmyard cutting it down. whooo, itchy stuff. We need to remember to rotate them sooner as this grass is taking up far too much time when I could be doing something way more fun.
