For those of you who gave creative, good advice - thanks. I needed to vent a little on it and I was looking for some creative solutions to my situation.

For those of you who weren't so tactful or kind - I'll try not to take it personally. I don't know why it was necessary to rip me to shreds and find out the smallest details of my life, but okay. I hope you find a Joe in your lives and then maybe you'll have a little empathy.

Recommendations...
1) educate your parents so that they understand why the other horses are detrimental. Explain that there isn't enough grass to support that many, and once it turns to dirt how difficult it will be to reestablish pasture after it becomes a dry lot.
Also, how that many horses in a small space have more behavior issues and chances of injury. There is also the feeding pecking order and health of your horse to bring in.
2) offer up several solutions. From asking Joe to remove his horses to suggestions on how to expand the pasture. If its expansion, work it out so that Joe's horses move to the new field and suggest he pick up some costs for the addition. You can also approach him to help build it-after all it's to benefit his horses.
3) the old tack- offer to sell it to fund the addition, or trade it back to Joe for services rendered, AFTER he helps build the fence.
4) if all else fails buy more round pen panels and create a new pen on your own.

Advice can change depending on your age. As a minor, you essentially have no rights. As someone who has reached the age of majority, you have rights, but only if you are the legal owner of the property.

Unfortunately, your parents are the property owners. And, apparently, your parents (unless they signed over Rusty to you upon your 18th birthday) are also the legal owners of your horse, and therefore, can do what they want with him.

These may seem like small details to you, but these details are how we can try to help you determine the best course of action for your situation.

I would fence in the other area with your dad or whatever,and then move Knight and Rusty there, that way they can bond and you can love on them in "Their pasture." If there's a way for half of the run in to be in the new pasture, and half with the others, you could split it, and then you don't ever have to worry about Joe's horses...

I'm sorry if I missed it OP, but do you pay for hay or do your parents? If you pay for hay, I would decide how much your horse eats and say you will only pay for x amount, your parents will have to buy Joe's hay. If your parents buy hay then there really is nothing you can do about it, and as frustrating as it is to see your parents get taken advantage of you just have to let it go. If they realize money is tight and they need to cut down expenses, then suggest they stop paying for Joe's horses. Until then, it isn't your money, so try to forget about it.
