She is getting treated badly here at this place. She is not getting enough to eat by a long shot, and probably spends most of her time being chased away from the hay.

Move her, or pay for her own stall and pen and go out and feed her yourself 2x a day.
I'm not sure if you saw the last few updates of this post. I'm going to go with "no." Hope you get to see the updated, happier pictures of her, and take note that I moved her months ago. <3 Thank you so much for the concern for her wellbeing, though!

Hoping she gains her weight back soon. she should in about a month if she is on that grass and getting supplemental feed as in forage (hay) or pellets. good luck.
hope your new private barn will be the right fit for you and your horse.
