June 7, 2009 update: My mares did really well with their boxes for six months. Mine had the slide in/out grid panel and I had hardware cloth in the bottom. Then, when they learned to spill the box over and removed the sliding frame from the top of the unit, we mounted them to the outside wall of the barn, moved the grid to the bottom of the box and placed them on cinder blocks prior to mounting. That way the soaked hay (my mares have allergies) the water just runs out the bottom grid/hardware cloth onto the ground. I still really like my boxes, but I have no top. They are just open. I have not had time to work on these. Don’t know if just adding new grids framing would work now that the mares can no longer tumple them over. Maybe. Honestly, the mares were able to rip the wood from the screws! I was left with no grid channel and raw screws which I had to remove immediately……………
This week, I am going to work on some new hay feeders; and this time I am doing the rain barrel w/the grid….I like that one.

where did you find the grate for the feeder? How big are the holes? I really need to build some for my horses! I have a horse with ulcers and I'm sure the way we have fed him added to the problem.
I would be so grateful for any information you can give me!
