I used to work at a "stable" that had a herd of about 25 horses that ran loose on 80 acres. I got them hooked on mashes by letting grain soak on a bucket of hot water with brown sugar and molasses mixed in, when it cooled i'd put it out and they'd slurp it up. After a few times all it took was for them to see the particular bucket i used to mix it in and they'd follow it anywhere.
Also, I don't know your set up there, but would it be possible to feed them on the other side of the gate? It sounds like it's fairly close to your house, once they were through, shut it behind them and they'll be out of the garage. I used to haul hay on tarps behind my POA into the far pasture when we needed to block them out of the main 60 acres. it worked like a charm once I convinced him he couldn't walk backward and eat at the same time.
