Out to gander pasture

Posted by Bill on September 08, 2011 at 08:13

: I know that 'out-to-pasture' is generally understood as the practice of putung a 'worn out' stud horse to pasture to live his last days. In my neck-of-the-woods during my youth the phrase "put out to gander pasture" was commonly used. I think it means the same as 'horse' pasture. Who has also heard the phrase and can you confirm meaning. It is not findable in online engines.
