Can you graze an olive plantation? or are olives bad for horses?

Troppo. Loco. Round the twist.
Some trees are toxic to horses. I believe Olive trees , or some species of them are toxic to horses,for example the Russian Olive tree. If you google, you will find a list of trees toxic to horses.

Goodluck. I wouldnt risk it

We have a ten acre paddock on our property that has many, many olive trees and we've always had horses on it, never had a problem Smile

My horse used to live under an olive tree. He even ate a few (but very very rarely) and never had a problem.

Completely Insane
One of my paddocks has a small olive grove in it - probably about 30 trees Twisted Evil
I have never seen my TB either eat the fruit or leaves of any of them.
Good luck finding a property.
