We moved some cattle Friday and part of them went up the road to our other farm. After we got them through the new gate J latched it and said, "I don't guess that needs a piece of wire on it."
He stared at it a long time, tested it, said he didn't think that the cows would lick the chain off, and very slowly started to walk away. I said that it didn't matter to me because I didn't use that gate. He immediately turned around and added the piece of wire.
