: : I'm writing for an American magazine and need to know if the British phrase "put out to pasture" is equally meaningful in the US.

: Yes, it is. In fact it's so common I would've assumed it was an American phrase!

Yes, as an American, I can certify that it is common here. Especially in horse country.
