    Funny, but who builds a cattle gate that doesn't swing both ways? I always open the gate in the direction the cattle will move. Opening a gate into a herd wanting to move to the next field isn't the way I would do it.

    My gates on roads going up/down hill only open one way. If it opened both ways, it would be too high off the ground when closed.

    His appeared to be on a hill, too.

    Why not just put in a cattle guard gate and not worry about a gate left open or closed.

    I have always run the fence line and gate towards a level spot. This also helps when you accidentally (eventually?) don't set the brake.

    Cattle guards are not allowed on my property. Having seen the legs cut off a horse and a cow getting them out is not pleasant.

    My property is not level and some gates can only open one way.
