Ok Well really all you have to do is think about whats important, if you want to go to college for something other than what your father wants then you do it. There are plenty of ways for you to pay for college without their help. There are scholarships, grants, student loans. I suggest going to see an admissions and finacial aid councelor at your prefered school. They also have dorms and work study. You can live and learn and work on campus and you would be completley self sufficient. I know what you mean by needing your animals around you as they are your friends and part of your family. Im blessed to have a great human and animal family. Im 22 and married. My family has owned horses, cattle dogs and such since before I was born they know how much the animals mean to me. Just keep thinking that once you get out of their house, into college and having a job then you can buy a horse, buy more animals to your hearts content. I know that may be easier said than done in this days economy but just remember, only the rocks last forever. You have total control over your fate.
I do get what your saying though. :)
