Hinge for gate modification

I have a back gate where the ground slopes upward so the gate cannot be flush to the ground without dragging when opened.

This is fine except that we have two rabbits that we like to let roam the yard and they can get under the fence if it's not blocked. I have been placing a 3' 2x10 on the inside of the gate to keep them in the yard. This is a pain because I have to prop it in place while they are loose and remove it when they're not.

I am looking for a spring loaded hinge that I can attach to the 2x10 so I can have a drop down board and not have to keep removing the 2x10.

Is there such a hinge?

How about a heavy duty gate hinge and a hook and eye combination to keep it up when it's not needed?
