Hmmm, that is tricky. Could you get some grating that is square and cut it to size? I have seen people use hog panels cut to size before.

Just a follow-up on my TWC and the slow feeder. I have been able to remove the grate now. We are able to put 3/4 pads of hay in the box with very little mess in the stall. Much easier to gauge how much he eats between feedings. We give him about a oz of yeast every 2 days (Amish vet recommended for my horse Cody when he started to develop ulcers). Blackie has put on about 200 pds and piles have been normal since we started the yeast. We ride him 3/4 times a week and he is doing great.
We are going to a Buck Brannaman clinic in March, should be very enlightening.

Guess I can't call it a slow feeder anymore since he can now have all he wants.
