Should be able to make one pretty easy

I made mine like that but longer and wider I also have a chain welded on it so I can adjust it to fit the cattle I am working. I can make it work on 2000 lb. bulls or 350 lb. calves or I can lift it up and hook it to where its not even down in the alley. stick a pipe in front of it and it will work as a stop to where they can't even go up the alley if needed

I second (or third I guess) the pipe. We actually got a smoothed off 1 inch thick, 6 foot long fiberglass "rod" from the guy who semen tests bulls for me and I wish i had another. It doesn't shed fibers into your hand and is light enough to throw around in a hurry, but will hold if one of our cows or bulls (several over a ton) ram into it. They have tried, but cannot break it. I'm sure that eventually, it will succumb to age, but so far (3 years of nearly daily use) and it is holding up. I wish I had more of them...

Glad I’m not the only one. Broke my Oakley sunglasses in half I was wearing on top of my head.

DAM, that's what I'm doing wrong. I suppose I'm not supposed to stick my head through the head gate and have them catch me either!
