I am going to use some metal pipe gates for some stalls and they need painted....well...don`t "need" it, but sure would look better...
:

Does anyone know if its OK to just use regular paint for them when they will be used so close to the horses?? I never see them biting or mouthing the gates, but they rub on them from time to time...just thought I would ask to see if anyone knows of any paint I should NOT use...

Thanks in advance for any input....

Normally on wood I would use something lead free just in case they wanted to eat it.

But on metal, I did some gates a while back just using spray on rustoleum because they weren't about to eat or suck on them.

Thanks Marty!!
:

I did not think it mattered but since these would be used with them more in contact with the gates than in an outside situation...thought I better ask BEFORE I got them all done. I have learned a LOT on this forum and one thing is never to take anything for granted...
