this inspires me to do mine! lol. awesome job they look all shiney and new!

Different tip for the bars. You can use the rustoleum spray paint. Ive used it on everything from metal tie outs, metal bed frames, xbox 360 controllers, cars etc. It comes in a high gloss version that works quite well. I don't have any examples but I like the stuff, have about a billion different colors of it in my garage just in case haha.

Regarding finishing only one side. I know with kitchen cupboards if one doesn't finish both sides that warping will occur. Will that happen with the stalls boards? If the bars are steel, just sand lightly, wipe with paint thinner then apply Rustoleum or Tremclad. No primer. These two products are made with fish oil and the primer will prevent it from doing it's job of preventing rust. I use a small disposable paint roller for jobs like this. It's cost effective.
