MOTHER'S readers send in their best tips.

The photos show our "farm gate." We have a pasture that is cross fenced with electric wire and we needed a way to get from one side to the other, while still keeping the horses contained. We found an old metal headboard from a bed and it works great! Been using it for 20 years now. How's that for recycling?

That's my husband Frank in the photos, along with Cappy.
