Get him out yesterday. I'm surprised you let him become so far gone before deciding to remove him from the situation, have you not been able to get to the barn?
Bring a truck and trailer, friends or police if you have to. Have someone grab all of your tack while you're loading your horse, get in the truck and drive away. Have your proof of ownership in hand, pay them what you owe them and get out. IMO if a horse has been neglected there's a breach of contract right there and you no longer owe the barn 30 days' notice. If they can't keep up their end of the deal, you don't have to keep yours. Pay the last of your board in check and don't look back.
