A neat tip a vet gave a friend of mine on tying is to put the rope through a rubber hose.  This way the horse can't get tangled.  I've never tried it but it seems feasible. He suggested splitting the hose with an exacto knife to make it easier to insert the rope.  Hope this helps!

The cattle feed probably has monensin in it, which is fatal to horses.
