    Could be the owner...or maybe someone who realized that waking up the neighborhood with a gate smacking the ground is not a good attention getter...I'll go with the owner though as you suggested!

    If he is the owner, I'll bet he has a gate assist unit on his trailer. That's the only way to drop the gate "professionally".

    I don't drop my gate period. Profoundly bad idea. How long would it last if I was doing that? Not bloody long.
