Is this a question about a particular OSM editor, or a map based on that data, or something else?

I'm not aware of any actual tag including "grazing". The general starting point for any "managed" grass which isn't the neatly manicured grass found in city centre parks is landuse=meadow

For an area used for keeping grazing animals you then add meadow=pasture or meadow=paddock where horses are kept for example https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:landuse=meadow

Hi, Briefly, pasture is grassland suitable for grazing. Grazing is the act of animals consuming the grass from the pasture.

I'm referring to tagging areas used for animals eating grass.

Your initial question was "what is the difference?" That question is answered above. What should you tag it as is a different question. For farmland that is sown with grass for grazing or for hay you could use landuse=meadow meadow=pasture as per https://tinyurl.com/45yhkh9w For areas not part of farmland landuse=grass.

Although grazing can be used to describe an area of grassland, literally, grazing, and to graze, means to consume. To graze: [verb] is to feed on growing herbage.
