How do you manage wild cherry trees in the pasture?

I am planning on moving my two beautiful girls home by the end of the summer. First I need to finish the fence, shleter and clean up the pasture. We have over 4 acres of established pasture. My question is how do you manage the wild cherry trees that come up? I have walked it over and over and everytime I walk I find a tiny cherry tree coming up. It's driving me nuts! Will it hurt them if they eat any of the leaves? Is the fresh leaves ok?, I just want to be sure everything is as perfect as I can get it before I move them here.

I'd find out from reputable sources whether they were toxic to horses, & edible for humans. If edible for humans, I'd fence them off & enjoy the cherries. You can chop down the excess; seems that an orchard wants to grow there!

Every dangerous plant list I have seen for horses says cherry trees are poisonus to horses, besides they are wild cherriy trees with no cherries on them, and if I put a fence around each one of them I wouldn't have any pasture left.
