We have a key, as well as the owner. And she still gets walked daily.
So if I really wanted to stael your buckets I would climb the fence in the run and walk in the stall and get out what I wanted.

Well, you need to think of it that way. To be perfectly blunt, your horse will be a krispy kriiter if, god forbif there is a fire......or this unstable manager goes "postal".. Sorry, but I would never think of locking my horse in. Even with a little paddock or whatever you call it. And no, hand walking is not enough excercise at all. It sounds to me like if anilmal control DOES come out, they may just take a few animals. Not sure how they feel about horses locked in. This is really ridiculous.?

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Get your horse out, and then sue her ass in civil court, Your horse lost weight, stole, didnt feed, easily provable.

If your solution is locking everything up (including your horse) to ensure the stable manager doesn't have access, you need to move your horse ASAP to the first decent place that will take and care properly for her. If things are truly as bad as you say, I have to wonder why you haven't moved her already. Go to your local feed /tack store or telephone directory and find a stable who can / will take her NOW. Once she is safe and cared for, then you can worry about finding a long term facility that is more convenient / affordable for you. Don't give the yard owner a second glance. By condoning the managers behaviour, she is just as guilty of neglect, regardless of how sweet she seems.

I would not hesitate to make some calls, ask around, etc. - whatever you have to do to get your horse transported to a better barn!! The situation is inexcusible. I wouldn't spend so much time, worry, energy and gas trying to make do in such a toxic environment. If you're nervous about moving your horse and this happening again, (most likely it won't - there are a lot of good stables out there!), be sure to get references from past and current boarders.
Good luck, and I hope everything works out! Then you can enjoy horseownership again as it was intended. :)

As the other have said - cut your losses and get away from her. She sounds spiteful, will do you no favours and believe me when I say there ARE good people out there. You should enjoy seeing your horse, it sounds like seeing your horse causes you to be upset, why do it to yourself?

As for transport - over here 99% of yards will offer transport. It's in their interest to get horses in, so they are more than happy to do it. If you are enquiring, ask about transport, I'm sure you'll find somebody to help you out.

I would suggest either moving your horse, or suggesting to the property owner that although there are 6 horses, if she wasn't at this property, there is a fairly good chance that other people would move their horses to the yard. By the sounds of her, she's clearly burned her bridges with numerous people, and that will do the property owner no favours to get horses into this yard.

I haven't read all the replies.

Seriously, get out of there. Find a hauler for your mare, go look at barns in your area (you'll save on fuel costs!). Believe me there are tons of barns out there better than the one you are at.

Just because you are close with the owner of the property (I am assuming here, you said she had pushed you to get Delilah, and you don't want to leave so I assume you are close with them), does not mean it's a good situation for you or your mare. Being close with the owners does not mean they have the best care. Go look at other barns, try google/phonebook or if you have a local horse site that will usual have BO's posting when they have an opening for a boarder.

How does your horse's safety and health outweigh your friendship with the owner? You're also spending quite a bit on gas each day I assume, not to mention your time. Find a better situation.

So it sounds to me that this horse is more of a pet then anything. You never said when you ride or anything like that. Not to mention you have her LOCKED in her stall. First I would get the heck out of that place. It just sounds bad all around. Even if you only find something temporarily, and good BM or BO will understand your sisutation and be willing to help. Second, your horse needs to be worked, daily. Consider leasing her out, or selling her. For her own good.

Your horse is an extension of you.
