Do you have to use the mineral oil with it? How much do you feed - does the 1/2 cup sound about right?
Our horses get round bales of hay and are fed in rubber tubs. We set the rubber tubs down in old tires that are tied to a fence post. That way, they can't tip the feed tub over. They really can't! Unfortunately, they still stick their feet in the tub and paw a bunch out on the ground for some stupid reason, then eat it off the ground. Go figure!
