If you and the other boarders are willing to pay for the replacement feeder, I would think that was persuasion enough.

Also, your initial question is not worded in a way that will get you the results you seek - if I understand you correctly, you what to know about injuries related to having a *cattle* round bale feeder used for horses?

And you want to replace the *cattle* round bale feeder with a *horse* round bale feeder?

I am happy to report that I spoke with the barn owner about two out of four horses being injured in the pasture since the metal cattle round bale feeder appeared. I then asked if he'd be willing to move the feeder and he said, "no problem."
Glad simple communication was the answer in the end.

There is a difference between a cattle feeder and a horse feeder. I would not use a cattle feeder for horses. However, if your concern is that it is metal, there isn't anything wrong with a metal horse feeder. We have had our horses hurt on a horse feeder, but that was because it was dilapidated. We went and purchased a new one (metal) and the owner offered to reimburse us. They haven't been hurt since.
