I'm sure they enjoyed, and we have to secure somewhat the gates as she learns extremely fast how to do things like that. This weekend I found out someone (I bet Jemma) took off the heater from water bucket, unpluged it from the extention cord and dragged it all way to the field. Plus someone kicked the on/off switch on barn (it had ball of mud all around the plug).
How is she getting the gate off? Ours are just plain tube gates from Atwoods or TSC . A lot of people make the mistake of putting the top pin facing up so they can just slip the gate over the pin when attaching it to a post. I always put the top pin facing down so the horse/cow whatever can't put their head through and lift it up off
the pin. Check how yours are installed at the hinge end. The top pin should face down and the bottom pin should face up. Make sense? The top pin bracket on most gaits are bolted on so its easy to just turn the pin and redo it.

Sorry had to edit this in... I put the cord of my tank heater through a piece of PVC pipe so they can't get ahold of it. Its a submersable one though. For the floating ones try wireing it down to the tank. I quit using the floating ones for that reason, they were always pulling it out of the tank.

I think you are right and they put pins in wrong position. So we secured them yesterday. Lol!

I don't mind to have snow, just not ice like last year (was complete ice everywhere for week).
