Of course our new gate would not be complete without a Lucy access door.

Couldn't the goats get through the door if they figured it out?

(My neighbor just got a black lab and named her... Lucy!)

I had a similar set up for our Great Pyrenees. It didn’t take long for the goats to discover it and I had to seal it up. I hope you have better luck.

Nayan and Ned --- Luckily, this gate doesn't separate goat pasture from garden. You're totally right --- our goats understand these doors just as well as Lucy does. This is the gate between garden and great oudoors...and the deer have, thus far, not been quite as bright. :-)
