This whole thing sounds really sketchy to me. Yes, it is the BO's responsibility to feed and care for the horse according to the contract, but it is your responsibility as the horses owner to make sure that they are in fact being cared for. If you have been seeing this horse regularly and you are only now taking action, then the neglect is your fault.
Honestly I was on your side, having only read this thread, until I started seeing the replies you gave to people who asked questions in order to determine how this happened so that they could help you. You either got defensive or ignored the questions completely. That doesn't strike me as someone who hasn't done anything wrong.

You're right, you don't need to explain anything, but if it were me and I was in fact not at fault, I would WANT to explain. Even if that explanations was, "I made a mistake." it would be far better then defensiveness that will make many people decide you are in fact the neglector in this case.
