I figured this was setting up to be a bash on your boarding facility.
Horses get hurt - as I stated before - it's a rule.
Are you positive the gash was from the feeder?
Did a vet verify the reason the horse was out of alignment? We have horses do some pretty insane movements - all by themselves. I never think to check their alignment every time they finish playing 'wild horses'.
