automatic stall gate?
I have two very laid back, geriatric horses. One is fat, the other is a little on the thin side. The fat one is dominant and keeps eating the thin one's feed. They have a turn-out barn with their own large stalls. I was thinking about rigging up some sort of stall door so that it was kind of like a screen door. It would have a spring that keeps it closed from the outside, but can be pushed from the inside, so that the horse (with training) could leave the stall. I don't think the fat horse would ever figure out how to get the door open because of his combination of dull brains and laziness. Am I being totally lazy? I have tried locking him up in the stall and actually have forgotten about him a couple of times and he was locked in his stall for hours. thanks
