Angry I think someone has been beating my horse, or maybe I'm paranoid??

Normally when I go visit Cinny the first thing he does when I walk into the barn is rush to his door and nicker at me...maybe paw in impatience if I don't get there soon enough. Then he happily gives me loving.

Today when I arrived at the barn, no Cinny at his door. I whistled, still no Cinny. So I walk over to the stall to find his blanket a little disheveled and Cinny cowering in the back corner in the dark with a traumatized look about him. I got him out and gave him some treats and pats until he seemed more relaxed and went to clean his stall. While cleaning it I found a stick freshly broken in two places in the middle of his stall. Yesterday I sifted his stall so I know it wasn't there until today.

Please tell me there is a logical explanation for this and I'm just paranoid because I'm really really thinking someone beat my horse this afternoon.

Anybody know where to get a cheap "nanny cam" I can hide in his stall?

Maybe play dumb and show the broken stick to your BO and ask him/her how something like that got into your horse's stall. You'll get an answer whether it is through spoken word or not.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I don't want to alarm you, but this happened to me once. I went on holiday and came back and my horse had completely changed. Every time I went near him he became a quivering wreck and quite dangerous too. I was really frightened because my first thought was that he had a brain tumour (although for a 4 year old that would have been unlucky). The yard owner where I kept my horse had gone away for the weekend to a show and had left his (at the time) head groom in charge.
I later found out from another groom that the head groom (a really twisted girl) had been beating my horse and had even stuck things into his anus. WHY? because he wouldn't stand still while she pulled his mane.
What a freak. Needless to say when I found out all hell broke loose. Now the horse (nearly 5 years on) is a changed horse forever, he gets really stressed when you try to get near his tail and goes mental when you touch his mane.

I hope you can get to the bottom of this, and quickly... x

Is there marks on him or his blanket?

Is he boarded or at your house? A camera would need to record to something, so need to know if you could store the hard drive part of it somewhere or if it would transmit to your house.

Does the barn have people that clean the stalls? How many other people are at your barn? I agree with the post saying play dumb... That's really strange!

Good luck, hope you find out what happens soon!

The stick could've came from his hay. Every now and then there will be sticks in our bales (typically the ones made from the hay at the edge of the field).
