    I have some "short" gates that I inherited when I bought the place. From what I can tell, the previous owner hacksawed off the bottom rung or two. It seems to work okay.

    If the horse will tolerate them, the "Lende"-style shipping boots are excellent. They go on and off really fast and they are not hot.
