yes, definitely put a sign up.
they should not have to be a mind reader nor should you have to TELL them not to feed your horse. people should know not to feed treats to other people's horses without permission. most people wouldn't feed a dog a treat without asking the owner. why do they think they can feed a horse treats no questions asked?
I would put one with "* WARNING*MEDICAL* DO NOT GIVE TREATS of ANY KIND! "
people tend to respect that more than just a sign reading no treats. as they think it won't hurt giving just one.
sadly I had to do this at a couple barns I was at as I kept discovering candy wrappers in his stall.
people should NOT feed treats or food to your horse except with permission.
