You could do it yourself. The company that put up my pipe section fencing doesn't sell it it, anymore--go figure. =/
The Amish close to me are using three "rails" of 4" diameter pipes that are bracketed to 8"diameter, 8' long (3' in the ground) fencing. My posts are set about 12' apart.
I was inspired to pipe fencing from the 1950's/1960's vintage fencing I've always driven past and a LOT of it is still intact--just seems to last forever and is still safe, unless it's got a rusted out, sharp section.
If you've ever had electric, done by somebody else and NOT maintained, you wouldn't want it. I had that, when I rented space for my horses. I came out on day to see my 18yo pony with a piece of fenced wrapped around his front r pastern, and this can happen with any wire around a horse.
Besides good old wood, I like metal better, too.
