I don't have experience with studs, but can it be just jealousy? He'd been by himself and got all your attention, but now it's not the case.

If you ride that much and him being around that many horses I would not worry about, I have a gelding that gets to be with a horse about one or two days a week other that that I ride him and he can see other horses when I am on his back if your with them enough they will want to be with you more then another horse. I don't see any thing worng with the hay ring, it's going to be safer with out thoese things they can get there leg in.
Kansas_twister I going to ask a dumb ? was your hay ring for cows or horses? They make horse ones for horses so they don't get hurt.

I have seen home made versions of those set higher off the ground, made out of wood that looked much safer. With my round ring, it is a possibility that a horse could put a hoof through one of those rounded bars - that would be scary. Hasn't happened yet - not to say that it can't.
Of course panel fencing, cross ties, hitcing posts, and a lot of other equipment made for horses can be hazardous to a horse in the right situation.

We can make things as safe as we can, but sometimes horses are still hazards to themselves

We ended up doing feeder ourself from wood. Not just to save money, but my horse had bad habit on knocking on metallic round feeder at boarding farm, so at least knocking on wood is safer.
