She does sound motivated for grain so just get in a pattern of bringing her up at a set time (dusk is a good trigger). Halter her, get her out of the pen so the other horses leave her alone plus you have the opportunity to reinforce some good manners.

    Roasted soy beans are a great high quality protein and high fat source for horses.
    iv had her almost 6 weeks and she started loosing weight very slowly

    I just ordered some suppliments for her (Im to far from a farm store to go get them about an hour and a half drive) Im thinking bout hauling all my horses but her to the ranch, but she would just try to get into the pen with my neighbors horses so im at a loss on what to do to separate her and work on her anxiety.
