The Ultimate all rounder feed!

A supplement for a shiny coat and a healthy horse





Elbow grease and rugging can only go so far in producing that ‘showroom’ shine. For best results you need to start on the inside – with a good feed. Volta receives 80g per day.

Barastoc Groom is the way to do it. This grooming mix has been carefully formulated as both a coat enhancer and conditioning concentrate. It contains a blend of high quality protein meals, live yeast culture, vitamins, minerals and oils -all of which are designed to improve the overall health, appearance and well-being of all types of horses.

Mixed daily with grain and chaff, Barastoc Groom helps to bring out the dapples and “bloom” in a horse’s coat. Your horse’s coat will become a window to its inner health, and the benefits of Barastoc Groom will soon shine through.
