Bret,not sure were Stover is from me but our local MFA is a distributer for Stay Tuff wire and they were very competetive on thier price. I would highly recommend pipe instead of wood! We just builta NEW fawn pen this spring and we used pipe corners and it was a LOT more work...................BUT............WOW it looks GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I used about 800 wood posts to build all of my holding pens and alleys. My preserve is right on Lake of the Ozarks and this area is very rocky. Pounding wood posts into rock was a nightmare and we ended up having to pre pound a metal spike first to open up the hole and then pound the post. I learned my lesson on wood vs metal in rock!

Try Beem fence at www.beemfence.com Mark uses metal pipe for his fence and will sell it or install it. We've seen fence he put up in New York state where it is solid granite - so he has the know how and equipment. He put up our fence and after 15 years it is still straight.
