Tarastone, I feel ya. I moved to a new stable and lasted 4 weeks. Last straw was a gelding that came after me, then my horse. I second what paintmares said and, although its less than ideal, I would encourage you to move.
In the meanwhile, grab a whip and don't be a chicken like I was lol, use it!
I know how tough boarding is. It puts you at the mercy of other people's decisions (BO, other boarders, etc). I moved 48 hours after the gelding incident, have been at this million dollar farm now for a month and, as life goes, we are moving on Jan 12 b/c a trainer I've wanted to work with for a year now has a stall.
If all else fails, tell the BO this mare is dangerous and u want them to pull her first, or catch her before you get your horse... Tell them you are not feeling safe. Put the liability on the BO and keep yourself safe. Start looking and talking to people about moving, you may be surprised by what's out there.
Good luck and sorry you're in this spot, it stinks! (But not as bad as a wicked vet or hospital bill!!)
