Is there any type of tube gate that would keep the goats IN?
We now use wire filled gates for our Nigerians and mini nubes they seem to work great, but I just like the look of tube gates better. So if you know of a tube gate for goats please reply. Thanks!

We had old cattle gates that I didn't want to just toss away. We added wire to our gates. I just cut a piece or welded wire that fit and zip tied it on. It works for us. I would think you could do that with tube gates but I'm not sure if it would have the look you want.

Sorry. That's not really the look I want. I would think that might look chinsey on tube gates. I just wanted it to look like a normal tube gate, but thanks for your reply!

I like the idea of cattle panel on them also. However we already had the welded wire with the 2x4 holes so I cut a piece to fit and used stainless wire to tie it on. I think it turned out good. My husband says he will get the welding machine out "one day" and weld it on for me.

They do sell the tube gates with wire on the bottom portion also if you are wanting a more Professional look

Bayouboergoats. We use the gates from tractor supply on the link that you gave me for our kidding stalls. They really are great. The little houdinies can't get out of them. I was really wanting a tube gate that would keep the escape artists out. Thanks for the reply!

Thanks for your replies everyone. We have just decided we are going to use wire filled gates for the new goat pasture.

Thanks for the replies though!

Caden,
