Chain Link Fence Keeps Horses From Wrecking Gate
"Now when horses kick the gate they're kicking wire instead of sticking their hooves through the gate pipe and bending it," says Turner of Frankfort, Ky. "The chain link fence also keeps horses from biting on the gate, and from sticking a leg between the pipes and then bolting and breaking a leg."
He used a steel rod and a come-along to stretch the fence tight against the top of the gate, then wired it on with high tensile wire. Then he repeated the procedure on the bottom and ends of the gate. He also spray painted the chain link fence black.
"I wrapped the high tensile wire through every other loop of the fence so it's on there to stay," says Turner.
