CoolStance

Description

CoolStance copra is a unique horse feed because it has low Non Structural Carbohydrate (NSC), and yet has a high digestible energy content. CoolStance is packed with ‘cool' energy from coconut oil and fibre from coconut meal. CoolStance copra is suitable for most horses and can be fed to maintain a natural state of gut health and insulin sensitivity, ie normal insulin metabolism.

CoolStance 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which horses can you feed CoolStance® to?
CoolStance® can be fed to most types of horses - working, spelling and breeding.  CoolStance® may also be fed successfully to horses developing or suffering from metabolic disorders. It can be fed to help maintain insulin sensitivity in all horses. Foals may be fed CoolStance® in a creep feed. It may also help keep condition on older horses. CoolStance® contains low levels of NSC (<12%) which may be suitable for horses at risk of insulin resistance, laminitis and tying up. It may be useful in the diet of horses affected by Cushing's disease to reduce the NSC intake.

Why does CoolStance appear brown?
CoolStance® is brown because the white meat of the coconut has been heated during processing to extract the coconut oil.

Does CoolStance® contain the husk or the shell?
CoolStance® 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 CoolStance® supply energy?
CoolStance® provides readily digestible sources of energy from:

How is CoolStance® 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 CoolStance® 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. CoolStance is GMO and chemical free.

Is CoolStance® palatable?
CoolStance® 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 feed CoolStance® wet or dry?
CoolStance can be fed dry or as a wet mash. Some horse may prefer the texture of CoolStance® when it is wet.

When CoolStance is soaked in water, it will swell to at least 3 times the volume.  If we feed it dry will CoolStance swell up and hurt my horse?

One of the major attributes of CoolStance is that it will swell in water, which helps to rehydrate horses. When CoolStance is fed dry, the horses eat the feed more slowly, and by having the water trough away from the feed trough, they have to walk away from the feeders to have a drink of water. This helps to regulate consumption. Wetting feeds can also prevent dust irritation.

How should I store CoolStance®?
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
