Just go to whatever other spot you have picked, and don't tell them where.
People have been telling the OP that for quite some time. There is obviously MUCH more to this story that is not being told to us (or there is less to the story ). Otherwise no responsible horse owner would still have their horse at that barn.

Can not hurt anything. That is for sure! Good thinking.

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, I haven't had the chance to be on a computer.
Anyway, these people are driving me insane.
Friday night the owners were bringing rumour and Sonya into the barn for the night. Rumour was being a foal and was running around, so naturally Sonya followed her. So the BOs were walling around trying to get Sonya, but she was running away.
So one of the BOs, the husband, yells "if that horse doesn't come here she is staying out all night without food!"
at that point, my friend who had been watching the whole thing(I wasn't there), grabbed a handful of grass and smooched for her to come over, which she did. The BO then yanked her halter out of my friends hand and kicked her with his steel toed boots on. Sonya screamed.

Yesterday Sonya did the same thing to me. But I didn't chase her, I gave her a minute to calm rumour down and I tried again. She was fine. Sonya has never done that to anyone ever before. She is a little bit afraid of being caught now because of this.

I am calling every barn around her finding out there info.

So rumour is getting super big. She is a fast learner to. She stood still for a good 5 minutes letting me groom her. She is also letting me pick up her feet. And she isn't even kicking out with her bak feet now! I'll put some new pics up today!

It took that for you to look for a new barn?

Well, I am glad you finally had the straw that broke the camels back and you are looking.

Tip on that - when moving them (in those early days when mama freaks out if she gets more than a few feet from the foal) lead the baby, let the mare follow. Doesn't matter that the baby isn't halterbroke - one hand on the halter and another hand on the rump you can guide the lil ones about anywhere.

Anyways, yes, get them out of there ASAP. I'd have been concerned no matter what - but if the mare actually screamed, and that statement isn't put in here for dramatic effect, I'd be calling the vet again. A mare just given birth getting a kick hard enough to make her "scream" would be very, very worrying, especially if that blow was aimed at her gut. Keep a close eye on her.

Honestly WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?!? Nobody kicks my horse. I had a farrier kick my first horse when I was younger - didn't take a moments thought to fire him on the spot.

To do it to a mare that recently foaled is just digusting.
