What is the meaning of shooting a dead horse?
"shooting a dead horse"means that you are repeatedly doing or saying something that is pointless because of the fact that the said "problem" you keep addressing has already been resolved. this is comparable to shooting a dead horse because if the horse is already dead, shooting it again isn't going to make it any more dead. Plus that would be a tremendous waste of bullets...

What is the explanation of the proverbs of what good is the grass if the horse is already dead?
At the present time, people grow grass mostly for reasons that have nothing to do with horses, but there was a time when horses were the main method of human transportation, and the main use of grass was to feed horses and other grazing animals such as cows and sheep. This proverb warns against futile effort. If you no longer have any horses, perhaps you should not bother to cultivate grass. I could also say that if a candidate has dropped out of a race, you should not waste your time campaigning for that candidate. We need to act for reasonable purposes, so that we can accomplish something.

For example, when beating horse to death, if you continued beating it after it was dead, that would be beating a dead horse.
