I got a problem...

Theres this gate to the Forest Service Land on the SouthEast corner of our land...



I open these type of gates all the time while timber cruising,
but most of them are used continuously during the summer so they are stretched.
We have a few of these scattered around here,
separating us from the Forest Service side.




But this one is old and its got lots of barbed wire....

And its what they call  "tight as a tick".



This is the hinge side...





This is opening side...

The idea is to slip the barbwire loop over the shorter post to open it.




This is the bottom of it - because i cant get it open...




How on Gods green earth can I loosen this to open it without resorting to cutting & mending wire?




And
 Ebony is alarmed because he's pretty sure he can't climb under it with me...




Is there a special Cowgirl trick to opening the "tight as a Tick" ones 
without using a Cowboy or a Forester?



Help?!!
