When your horse has ‘put in’ for you, it’s your responsibility to
ensure it has a healthy retirement.
Older horses have special nutritional needs. Their digestive
efficiency is reduced so they are not able to extract as much
nutritional value from their feed as they used to. This problem is
compounded by teeth that may be missing or worn.
Barastoc Senior is specifically formulated with cooked cereal and
fibre sources to improve digestibility and palatability in the older
horse. It contains an increased level of highly digestible fibre and
live yeast culture to maintain healthy gut function, and has natural
vitamin E included.
To compensate for decreased absorption of protein and soil
deficiencies, Barastoc Senior contains high quality protein from
soyabean meal and is fortified with vitamins and trace minerals.
And for increased palatability it also contains molasses.
Even horses with little or no grinding surface on their teeth can be
fed Barastoc Senior, as the pellets are easily softened with water
to form mash.
