    A couple strands of electric fence and a charger will make you life a lot easier.

    I will be using barbed wire arond the bottom of the fence to help of set the cost and I have no where to put a charger aas I will be boaring the the hog at the same place I board my horses. The only fence charger is about 500 feet away from where I will have the pen. Also can any on think of any more suupplies I will need.
