So I researched this a little bit. Looks like you need the plane that represents the ground and a vector representing the light position and run it through this function:

 

/* Create a matrix that will project the desired shadow. */
void
shadowMatrix(GLfloat shadowMat[4][4],GLfloat groundplane[4], GLfloat lightpos[4])
{
  GLfloat dot;

  /* Find dot product between light position vector and ground plane normal. */
  dot = groundplane[X] * lightpos[X] +
    groundplane[Y] * lightpos[Y] +
    groundplane[Z] * lightpos[Z] +
    groundplane[W] * lightpos[W];

  shadowMat[0][0] = dot - lightpos[X] * groundplane[X];
  shadowMat[1][0] = 0.f - lightpos[X] * groundplane[Y];
  shadowMat[2][0] = 0.f - lightpos[X] * groundplane[Z];
  shadowMat[3][0] = 0.f - lightpos[X] * groundplane[W];

  shadowMat[X][1] = 0.f - lightpos[Y] * groundplane[X];
  shadowMat[1][1] = dot - lightpos[Y] * groundplane[Y];
  shadowMat[2][1] = 0.f - lightpos[Y] * groundplane[Z];
  shadowMat[3][1] = 0.f - lightpos[Y] * groundplane[W];

  shadowMat[X][2] = 0.f - lightpos[Z] * groundplane[X];
  shadowMat[1][2] = 0.f - lightpos[Z] * groundplane[Y];
  shadowMat[2][2] = dot - lightpos[Z] * groundplane[Z];
  shadowMat[3][2] = 0.f - lightpos[Z] * groundplane[W];

  shadowMat[X][3] = 0.f - lightpos[W] * groundplane[X];
  shadowMat[1][3] = 0.f - lightpos[W] * groundplane[Y];
  shadowMat[2][3] = 0.f - lightpos[W] * groundplane[Z];
  shadowMat[3][3] = dot - lightpos[W] * groundplane[W];

}

Push your matrix then multiply by the shadowMat and try drawing. Let me know how that works.
