Cool Stance

Cool Stance is premium quality coconut (copra) meal, made from the white part of the coconut, which is dried, baked and ground. It is totally natural and is chemical and GMO free. It is assured quality and routinely tested for Aflatoxins.

The oil in Cool Stance (coconut oil) is saturated and rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCT). This means it is highly stable (not prone to rancidity) and can provide your horse with ready, non glucose energy.
Most horses love the taste of Cool Stance. It is rich in quality protein, and the oil assits with coat condition. Cool Stance contains only 11% NSC (sugar and starch) and has a high content of digestible energy. Cool Stance may support horses with metabolic disorders including tying up, laminitis or excitable behaviour.

Cool Stance copra is a unique horse source of energy because it has low Non Structural Carbohydrate (NSC), and yet has a high digestible energy content. Cool Stance is packed with ‘cool' energy from coconut oil and fibre in coconut meal. Cool Stance copra is suitable for most horses and can be given to support a natural state of gut health and insulin sensitivity, ie normal insulin metabolism (see The post feeding glycaemic and insulin response to copra meal in horses)

Cool Stance copra is made from the white part of the coconut, which has been dried, baked and ground. It is a totally natural product and is chemical and GMO free.

Key Benefits

  • Cool Stance copra has been administered as a quality supplement to horses for over 30 years
  • Provides high-density ‘cool’ energy from oil and digestible fibre (15 MJ DE/kg DM).
  • Contains <2% starch and may reduce the effect of hot or fizzy behaviour in horses
  • Contains < 11% Non Structural Carbohydrates (NSC) making it a source of low GI energy
  • Contains coconut oil, which is a saturated oil and is not prone to rancidity or oxidation
  • Rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) which are absorbed directly into the portal blood and provide readily digestible energy. MCT are unlike most other oils (soy, corn, flaxseed) which are polyunsaturated, and are slowly digested.
  • MCT from coconut oil may have antimicrobial actions from the Lauric and Caprylic acid
  • MCT are thought to support a healthy gut
  • Highly palatable, even for picky eaters
  • May support normal body, hoof and coat health

Will the high protein content of Cool Stance harm my horse?

When looking at the protein content, you must consider it as part of a complete diet. Cool Stance has high protein (21% crude protein), however it is designed to be administered in conjunction with lower protein materials like grass hay. Therefore when considered as part of a complete diet, Cool Stance makes a valuable contribution to satisfying a horse’s protein requirements in what may otherwise be a diet which is marginal or even deficient in protein.

How to administer CoolStance wet or dry

Which horses can you administer Cool Stance® to?

Cool Stance® can be administered to most types of horses - working, spelling and breeding.  Cool Stance® contains low levels of NSC (<12%) and may also be administered  to help support normal insulin sensitivity in horses. Foals may be given Cool Stance® in a creep feeder. It may also help keep condition on older horses. . 

Why does Cool Stance appear brown?

Cool Stance® is brown because the white meat of the coconut has been heated during processing to mechanically extract the coconut oil.

Does Cool Stance® contain the husk or the shell?

Cool Stance® does not contain any husk or shell. It is made from the white meat of the coconut. High fibre (20%) comes from the flesh of the coconut.

How does Cool Stance® supply energy?

Cool Stance® provides readily digestible sources of energy from:

  • Oil - Cool Stance® contains 8-10 % oil; medium-chain-triglycerides
  • Digestible fibre; and
  • Protein - Cool Stance® contains the gluconeogenic amino acids asparagine, glutamine, arginine, alanine, valine and serine, which can be used to produce glucose for energy.

How is Cool Stance® different to other oilseed meals?

The oils in other meals such as soybean and canola contain mainly Long Chain Fatty Acids (LCFA), which are polyunsaturated. This means they are digested slowly, and are prone to rancidity during storage. Some commercialised oils are made using GMO seeds/grains.

The fatty acids in Cool Stance® are mainly medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and are saturated.  This means they are readily digested, absorbed by the horse and are not prone to rancidity during storage. Cool Stance is GMO and chemical free.

Is Cool Stance® palatable?

Cool Stance® has a unique aroma and taste, which most horses like. A small number of horses can find the product unusual and can be slow to take to it. Start with small amounts and build up slowly. Persist, as the results are worth the effort.

Do you administer Cool Stance® wet or dry?

Cool Stance can be administered dry or as a wet mash. Some horse may prefer the texture of Cool Stance® when it is wet.

When Cool Stance is soaked in water, it will swell to at least 3 times the volume.  If we give it dry will Cool Stance swell up and hurt my horse? The answer is that because horses eat CoolStance slolwy, oit will hydrate slowly with saliva.

One of the major attributes of Cool Stance is that it will swell in water, which helps to rehydrate horses. When Cool Stance is given dry, the horses eatmore slowly, and by having the water trough away from the trough, they have to walk away to have a drink of water. This helps to regulate consumption. 

How should I store Cool Stance®?

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Are there different types of copra meal?

Copra meal is the coproduct of coconut oil extraction either my mechanical extraction or solvent extration (using hexane). Mechanically expelled copra meal contains approx 10-12% coconut oil, whereas solvent extrated contains only 2% coconut oil. Some copra is direct dried abov a fire and has a burent aroma. Some is indiret dried by the sun, or on a heating tray. Cool Stance is produced only from indirect dried, mechanically expelled copra.
