Gate Latches

Some Ideas for gate latches that make life easier.     Also  a gate in the shed that swings and can be taken around the sheep or you can slide it back if the sheep are in the way.    There is also a picture of a lure sheep used at the end of the race to help lure the sheep in while you dog brings up the rear.

Swing gate and lure sheep in background

This gate is used in the shearing shed. It can slide down the side of the pen, it can swing open.   It has a chain on both ends so that it can be closed no matter what end lands up when you close it.     The lure sheep in the background helps the first sheep to go in.    This sheep can be of the breed you own so that the sheep can recognise its own kind.
