Coconut Meal? My Horse Won’t Eat That!

updated at: Tue 08 Aug 2017

I get some version of this response (title of article) just about every time I strike up a conversation with someone new about  Cool Stance. But, the truth is, I have yet to meet a horse that hasn’t readily accepted it when transitioned thoughtfully. It’s true that a horse accustomed to eating grains high in starch and sugars is likely to turn its nose up at Cool Stance if you suddenly replace his usual sinful dinner with a bowl of healthy coconut meal (the same could be said about most of us as well!). But, the fact of the matter is, no one should ever transition any horse from one type of feed to another abruptly.

Also, if you’ve ever had a loose horse on your farm or in your barn, you know that when it comes to choosing what (or how much) to eat, horses definitely don’t always know what’s best  for them!

Stance Equine USA offers a recommended protocol for introducing Cool Stance, but I don’t want you to just take the company’s word for it. So in this article, I’m going to share some personal stories of how several of my friends and I have successfully transitioned a variety of horses over to Cool Stance, with amazing results.
