Diet analysis and feed

Not everyone gets it. Not everyone knows the magic of a horse, nuzzling your palm on a cold, dewy morning. Or the reasons why weekends, early mornings or the middle of the night are the times when horses come first. But horse people get it.

Having a horse is not just a lifestyle. It’s a whole life. Horse people know that it is about more than just care, or even love. It’s a passion. And horses always come first.

We are horse people too. Supporting your passion is our passion. That’s why we don’t just make feed. We support young riders, local communities and Aussie farmers.

We are Barastoc, horses come first.
