I bought the galvanized cattle hay ring that has the full ring around the top and just took my 4" grinder with cutting wheel and cut out part of the bottom ring at every other vertical tube to have a section for them to reach in once the hay got so low. I then took the flapper disk and smooth all the edges out so there would be no sharp edges to cut or scratch them as they went between to get at the hay. I couldn't see spending $250 for a horse hay ring when the cattle ring was only $149 and could spend 20 minutes making it a horse hay ring. I use the cattle ring upside down so that the vertical tubes are straight up and down rather than making them deal with the slanted tube.
If need be I can take pics this evening when I get home.
