Name this plant, please

Cedarhill(8b)July 12, 2013

This grass-type plant grows in damp logging roads and pastures... horses won't eat it and neither will burros. It is 1' to 2' tall. Local loggers call it n(word) head. This plant must have a not so awful name. Please help me identify it so I can set folks straight when they use the locally used name.

Juncus effusus, the common rush. Haven't seen that name used in reference to a plant since going through some old plant specimens from Texas circa 1950. Fortunately I've never had to work with anyone like that.
