1) I may have, but not a horse one. Personally, I think its admirable.
2) As long as you can care for the horse, give it love and attention I see nothing wrong with it what so ever.
3) Same thing. I would put the horse on a senior feed, probably some weight-gain supplements.
4) I'd drag out the boarding contract and show it to them and ask why they aren't feeding my horse like they promised. If your horse continues to loose weight because they aren't feeding your horse I would bring them to court. If you can't bring them to court, look for a new barn. When you look for a new barn look and see when and how they feed the horses and if they do. That way you don't have to keep moving barns because they aren't feeding your horse. Some barns have a 'fixed' grain for all horses. My barn does, however I'm sure if I supply the grain that they would feed it to my horse. They also let horses have supplements and feed it to the horses every morning.
A horse that is in her 30's will have a hard time keeping weight compared to a 15 year old. I know some horses that have that problem in their 20's.
...Wow I just typed all of that...LOL. Oh well.
