Every breeding season the team at Barastoc is excited to celebrate with you the new crop of foals. This year we’ve celebrated each week some truly lovely foals and enjoyed seeing their antics. 

At Barastoc, we also know what hard work it is caring for mares and foals and are pleased to be able to announce the winner of the Favourite Foals competition is Jessica Kent’s very lovey Chip. Jessica wins a special prize of a seasons end holiday we hope she has some one at home she trusts to mind Chip while she takes a much earned break. 

Other special mentions are Memphis, who won the judges special prize for being truly eye catching and full of spring!

Our loyal Barastoc voters also had the chance to go into the draw for a holiday voucher and we’re pleased to announce them here. 

Best of luck planning your breeding program for next year and we look forward to seeing the crop of 2023 this time next year. Until then you can keep feeding Breed N Grow as a introductory feed for your foals and to keep the condition on those lovely mares. 

Congratulations everyone!

Foal: Memphis

Born: August 22

Caption: “Meet Memphis! A 2022 snowcap Appaloosa colt pictured at nine days old and his first gallop out in the big paddock. Mum couldn’t keep up! This boy is such a character, up for pats and gets excited when he hears our human kids come his way. He needed a spunky name and Memphis fit the bill nicely.”
