People walking/driving through field!

I rent a pasture for both my horses from a friend if a friend. It has so far been really great. It is full care except that he has to take water to them. He also owns some trailers that's he rents out that are right down the road. Well I was out the other day and one of the family's that rent a trailer ( grandpa, son and grandson) coming walking through the field. I then realize that they are camping in the back pasture. Then Sunday I go out and there's tire tracks through the field and out the back gate lots of them! I'm really uncomfortable with this! Rowdy does not really like men especially strange men, cowboy has also been showing some aggressive behaviors(10 month old stud colt). Rowdy also is aggressive with vehicles he will attack them moving or not! Whenever I or the guy I pasture with has to enter the field we pen him up and I am always there. So now I'm wondering did these people pen my horses and if so how!? I am worried about them messing with them as they have come down while I'm there and talked about how much they like them and how sweet rowdy is(daughter, mother). The mother goes on and on about how gorgeous rowdy is and how she wishes she had a horse like him! Then I find out that they starve and beat their own animals(dogs) all the time and animal control has been called twice on them! Now I'm really worried I have not seen the guy I rent the pasture from in a week. He is a really nice guy and I really don't want to move. My mom says I'm over reacting about this and that nothing's going on but I can't help but worry! Any advice is welcome thank you!!

I'd be VERY worried if it was me. You need to call the guy you rent the pasture from immediately and get it sorted out. Is the pasture owner a horse person? A reasonable guy?

I am afraid to say that you need to consider moving your horses elsewhere. It goes to safety of your horses and safety for the interlopers who, in all likelihood, will cry foul and lawsuit the minute someone gets bitten or run over.

In theory, you could talk to the land owner to have everyone kept out of the pasture but I somehow don't think that will happen.

Before you give yourself a fit of hysterics over this, talk to the man from whom you're renting the pasture and find out exactly what's going on.

If your horses are as nasty and uncontrollable as you state, I'd be worried too. After all, if they attack anyone, that expense will be on you and you could very well be required to euth them as dangerous animals.

The blather about the people starving and abusing their own animals has nothing to do with the topic, so not sure why you threw that in.

He is a horse guy as he has a mare he keeps in a seperate pasture. He tends to be to nice something of a push over a lot of the time. I'm really not wanting to move as good pasture board is hard to find! But the safety of my boys is very important to me also so I will if I have to. I have been looking around just in case. I would call him but he works opposite shifts from me( second shift) so the only time I can is weekends sadly. I'm not going to be at work tomorrow though so was thinking I may show up randomly( I have a set routine) just to see what's going on and to hopefully talk to him about it.

I wouldn't say nasty and uncontrollable but they have to have someone handling them that knows what they are doing. Rowdy I worry about mostly because he dislikes men a lot! He was badly beaten by his previous owner. I'm not using it as an excuse but its a work in progress that the guy I pasture with is helping me on. I mentioned the talk about the abuse because if they do it to there own animals they could do it to others which is what worrys me.

Ummm...understand that pasture board is hard to find...

Also understand that you worry about the safety of your horses and the humans that maybe should not be in the pasture space YOU pay for for your horses use, not theirs regardless of why they are their!!!

We should all change up our routine sometimes...keeps people on their toes and aware that we are aware...

Personally, that phone would be ringing in his ear already.
Truly don't care if he works opposite shift from you or not...this is a serious issue you raise and are letting it go by in time as a wait and see? What are you going to do if your horse gets out, hurts someone or someone hurts them or gets hurt by them...
You posted this from a "mobile device" and everyone has time for a lunch/dinner break, coffee break, or bathroom break...use it constructively and make a phone call! Obviously a cell phone is available to you...if you should wake him up, so be it...you have concerns and need answers.

Honestly... I would be more than looking for new pastures.. the situation sounds bad and so do the cryptic comments passed by those people...
If your gut is telling you to react and move...DO IT!!

jmo...

Do they have to go through the field you rent in order to get to some other field in the back where they are camping? Or are they camping IN the field you rent?

Maybe start with talking to the owner of the land, and putting up a few NO TRESPASSING signs.

They have another way but it crosses someone else's property. I found out today he has been gone so had no clue they were even camping back there. He is going to talk to them and tell them they can't camp there and to stay out of the field. We also talked about putting a padlock on there gate to at least keep them from driving into the field.
