Coconut Oil for Horses - The Good Oil

CoolStance Story

Coconuts are grown in tropical countries either in plantations or by small landowners. Coconuts are harvested by hand and form a large part of the economy of these third world economies.

The white part of the coconut that is separated from the shell is called copra. The copra is sun or indirect dried, and then the coconut oil extracted by mechanical expellers. The resultant meal is called copra or coconut meal. It is hammermilled and then bagged into CoolStance bags.

CoolStance is synonymous with Quality.  CoolStance is only manufactured in factories with high levels of bio-security and ethical work practices.

Stance pioneered the feeding of copra meal to horses, and has conducted extensive research to understand why CoolStance gives the results that it does. The Stance research supports the claim "It works because it simply has to".
