"Wheeled Gates" Add Character To Farm
Ernie Herschberger, Humboldt, Ill. likes to make big, beautiful gates that reflect his love for horses. He has made three gates, all of which are at least 10 ft. high, that feature steel wheels off old horse-drawn cultivators.
  The main gate to his farm uses a small cultivator wheel as part of an overhead metal span, which is attached to the top of two telephone poles. Two metal cross bars contain the wheel while a chain of welded-together horseshoes adds to the charm. The bottom part of the gate consists of two large cultivator wheels supported by some cross bars.
  An 8-ft. wide double gate is part of an enclosure for his five horses. In the past, the enclosure was also used for some white deer that he was raising. The gate consists of two 4-ft. wide gates with a frame made from sq. tubing. The bottom half of the gate consists of expanded metal with a 4-ft. dia. cultivator wheel welded to it. The wheels are welded to the tubing. A series of metal bars extend vertically above the expanded metal.
