Some of these are kinda ambitious for a farm gate but they all go together basicly the same.

My homemade gate.

First you make it work, then you trick it out!

Sharpen some pieces of 3/8" re-bar to a point that will puncture a tire.  You don't want it too sharp in case some idiot steps on it.  Attach these to a piece of steel or a plank and bury them in the tire tracks so just enough sticks up to do the job, fix and lock the gate, and wait ;D ;)  These should be buried in both wheel tracks for the best effect.

Here is a picture of the gate I made. I had a sleezy neighbor that logged with horses and he though my mowed field was for pasturing his horses when I wasn't there. I put up a couple of those concrete guard rails with a cable but he used the horses to pull the concrete posts out.

This gate has been very effective at keeping unwanted things out since then. It is constructed of 6" well casing posts that were concreted at the bases and filled with concrete. The gate is constructed of 2" and 1-1/2" pipe. I added a u-shaped  piece that is hinged on one side and drops over the pipe to keep the two sections aligned. This is then locked with a large padlock and some 3/8" grade 80 chain. A section of tractor tire inner tube was attached with a hose clamp to cover the lock and keep it dry. Has never froze up on me yet.

Neighboring horse logger has since moved away but I think the gate will stay just in case he ever moves back into the neighborhood.
