I agree a padlock would pose a safety risk... but a rather large note strategically placed far enough away from a curious horse mouth but close enough to the stall as to not be missed in huge bold letters stating the horse must stay IN. Something along the lines of "Thank you for checking on me, but please LEAVE ME IN THE STALL TODAY!"

Hopefully now you have written a letter your family should understand. The above suggestion is a very good idea, although even signs like this can be ignored. I have a friend who has a very large sign on her mare's stable which reads 'DO NOT FEED ME TREATS!'. We still catch kids giving her polos!

I hope Comet will be OK and you don't have any problems like this in the future. X
