Can we talk about paddock gates? Is bigger REALLY better??
Do I really need a 16 foot gate on a 150 x 225' turnout-paddock? I was reading through threads and in typical COTH fashion I find "bigger is better," is the recommendation, but it tips me into thinking I need a smaller gate for daily use then...so now I need 2?
Also, 2" tube steel good enough? I am planning to get the nicer TSC one, unless someone has a brand that they recommend that is distributed around SD/MN/IA/NE as I can't imaine what shipping a gate would cost.
And finally, I thought I read somewhere that the mesh filled in gates could be dangerous, but I'm not seeing why? I mean this type: http://www.tractorsupply.com/wire-fi...14-ft--3610993 Also on this one, the 14 would be stronger than the 16' because the posts are closer...just saying. It just seems like if you are trying to keep dogs or something out this would be a better gate.
