The bottom line here is: how much food/bedding/supplies does it take to maintain your horse at a healthy weight? How much does this cost monthly/weekly. Regardless of whether she "asked/told" you, your mother has an obligation to maintain the horse in good health while it is in her care. You agreed to contribute towards that care. So, looking at the cost of maintaining your horse, what do the above mentioned supplies cost? How much, exactly, have you been contributing? If you can't afford to pay what it takes to maintain your horse at a healthy weight and meeting its routine costs, then you need to find someone who can. It was clearly established that your mother expected you to maintain your horses needs financially, and you are falling short. The RESPONSIBLE and caring thing to do is find your horse a home, for both the horses benefit, and your mothers (it isn't okay to dump a horse on someone, not pay as agreed, and still expect to be the owner). Were the horse in your backyard, without money, or ENOUGH money contributed as needed, you'd have an unhealthy rack of bones. You are unjustly expecting your mom to cover your shortfalls. Perhaps there is more that you have not mentioned, but based on what you have already said, I think you owe it to your mother and the horse to find a home where paying its needs isn't such a burden.
