To be put out to pasture

Significa retirar algo. Leí el dicho quedarse en barbecho y quisiera saber si
el significado es iqual y si aquel dicho es común afuera de España.

"Quedarse en barbecho" me parece que transmite más la idea de estar inactivo, como en un año sabático.

"Put (someone) out to pasture" como retiro forzado, no tiene una expresión equivalente que yo recuerde. En los doblajes siempre escucho "lo jubilaron" o "lo mandaron a retiro", probablemente por razones de espacio.

También. Y funciona con cajón en vez de baúl también.

"Poner a alguien (algo) a dormir el sueño de los justos." -> Dejarlo olvidado, como si estuviera dormido larga y profundamente.
