I would be piiiiiiiiiissed if that was my horse. I would put up a trail cam or closed circuit monitoring and put up a sign telling people they will be held liable for any injury or sickness caused to the horse and tell them that the premises is monitored 24/7. Electric fencing is not a bad idea either.
I don't like other people touching or feeding my horse. They can transmit disease, cause behavior and health issues and in a show horse can cause positive drug tests. The coffee thing would have thrown me right over the edge, especially close to a show.
If your horse choked, was poisoned, etc.. it would be heartbreaking! First and foremost we have to protect our horses. If little jimmy loses a finger then oh well maybe mommy and daddy should be letting him play with a large, young animal over a fence on someone else's property without permission. No trespassing signs are always good as well.
