We would like to tell you a little about our product POUNDS.

POUNDS ingredients are formulated to work together to correct biological malfunctions and feed waste, aiding in the six stages of nutrition -

Diet, Digestion, Absorption , Circulation, Assimilation, & Elimination.

Thus your horse uses his/her feed much more effectively, helping to eliminate digestive problems (Which may result in behavioral problems).  You should see not only a healthier animal after using POUNDS as directed, but a much happier one TOO!

POUNDS was developed for use on each horse according to the results needed. Larger amounts during heavy training and lactation. Smaller amounts during light training and idle times.

Also see feeding instructions

BASIC HORSE NUTRITION: N: To develop a good feeding program, it's important to understand the horse's unique digestive system. *This article covers the basic of the horses digestion system and what is need to maintain balance. Below this article we've listed what POUNDS has in it, all from natural sources.. no synthetic vitamin or minerals are used in POUNDS.


Teeth are important. A horse must be able to chew or food will pass right through. Back teeth should be checked regularly for sharp projection, or hooks, which can interfere with the way the horse chews his food. The hooks can be filed down or floated by a veterinarian. Food is chewed, swallowed and passed into the stomach. The stomach mixes food, starts the digestive process and acts as a reservoir to keep the small intestine continuously supplied. The horse's stomach is relatively small; food moves through it quickly. Because horses don't vomit, overfeeding can cause serious problems including colic and stomach rupture. As a precaution, horses that need a high quantity of feed should be fed three or more times a day.


Food enters the small intestine, where enzymes that digest soluble carbohydrates, fat and protein are secreted.  Carbohydrates are turned into glucose and other simple sugars that are absorbed and used for energy. Proteins are broken down into amino acids, which are used as building blocks for the body.  Bile secreted in the small intestine helps digest fat. Many minerals are absorbed in the small intestine. In the large intestine, large populations of bacteria help the horse digest fiber. These bacteria also help synthesize many B vitamins. Efficient digestion is influenced by a number of factors.  Feeding your horse certain rolled, cracked or crimped grains allows the horse's enzymes to work more effectively.  However, cooking does not improve digestibility, and feeding large amounts at once can decrease digestibility by increasing the rate at which food passes through the horse's body. The faster food moves through the system the less time bacteria have to act on the fiber. Light exercise has been found to slightly improve digestion by slowing the rate of passage. However heavy exercise can decrease digestibility.


Energy is supplied by carbohydrates protein and fat. Carbohydrates are the primary source of energy. Protein is mainly used to build body tissues. Any excess protein is used to supply energy or is stored as fat. Fat is a much more concentrated source of energy than carbohydrates or protein. Fat supplies unsaturated fatty acids horses need for healthy skin and coats. Feed supplements high in these fatty acids can help speed springtime shedding and make coats shine.


Horses require at least 22 mineral elements. Seven are considered macro nutrients, because larger amounts are needed. Trace minerals, or micro nutrients, are required in small amounts.The amount of minerals each horse needs depends on a variety of factors, including the horse itself. Young horses need more than full-grown horses, as do pregnant and lactating mares. Genetics also plays a role; some horses are prone to deficiencies. Bioavailability, or how efficiently an element is absorbed and utilized, affects the quantity required. The mineral's chemical and physical form influences its bioavailability. For example, iron in ferrous sulfate is readily available, while iron in ferric oxide, or rust, is almost useless Other minerals and nutrients in the diet influence bioavailability. Feeding high levels of one mineral can lead to problems. While the best way for horses to get the right balance of minerals is naturally, through their feeds, this isn't always possible. Feeding a multivitamin/mineral supplement can help provide the necessary nutrients within a reasonable balance.

Vitamins are organic compounds the body needs for normal functioning.The fat-soluble vitamins, vitamins A, D and E, are stored in the body. Excesses of these vitamins can be toxic. Water-soluble vitamins including the B vitamins and vitamin C are flushed out in the urine when the body has too much.
VITAMIN A: Essential for normal vision, skin, hair, nerves, growth and reproduction.
VITAMIN B1 OR THIAMINE: For nutrient metabolism, energy utilization and nervous system function.
VITAMIN B2 OR RIBOFLAVIN: For healthy skin, hair and nerves; energy utilization; and normal healing
VITAMIN B12: For blood building, a healthy appetite, and proper growth.
VITAMIN C: Required to form collagen. Synthesized from glucose in the horse's system.
VITAMIN D: Works with calcium and phosphorous to build and maintain strong bones, joints, and teeth.
VITAMIN E OR TOCOPHEROL: Works with selenium to help prevent tying up and white muscle disease. Promotes healthy muscles, body tissues, skin, coat and reproduction.
VITAMIN K: For normal blood clotting.
BIOTIN: For healthy skin, coat and hoof condition.
CHOLINE: For fat metabolism, cell structure and nerves.
FOLIC ACID: Helps form red blood cells.
NIACIN: For healthy appetite, nutrient metabolism, proper growth, skin conditions, and nerves.
PANTOTHENIC ACID: For healthy skin, coat, appetite and nerves.
WATER: The most important nutrient is water. A horse can live for weeks without food but only a few days without water
Dehydration occurs when water loss exceeds water intake. Inadequate water supplies, severe diarrhea, excessive sweating, or the physical inability to drink can cause this. A horse can be expected to drink 2 quarts of water for every pound of feed. A sedentary, 1100lb horse may drink up to 10 gallons a day. An active, hard-working horse requires much more, especially in hot, humid weather. A lactating mare needs about 5 gallons more water than the average horse. Horses should always have fresh water available and should be allowed to drink all they need. The only time a horse shouldn't be allowed to drink is when it's overheated after exercise. Watering a hot horse shocks the system, and can lead to founder. Once the horse cools down let him drink all he wants.


macro nutrients; Calcium, Chlorine, Sulfur, Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorous

micro nutrients: Iron, Cobalt, Fluorine, Selenium, Tin, Arsenic, Iodine, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Vanadium, Nickel, Silicon, Zinc, and Copper.

In this day of scientific revelation, it is easy to forget a few basic facts.  When a horse ingests synthetic vitamins, all they get is an isolated vitamin. On the other hand, natural vitamins are derived from fresh, wholesome ingredients.  Scientists first discovered vitamins in natural ingredients, not in the test tube.  Nature really did invent vitamins; scientists did not.  One measured unit of a natural vitamin is worth five times as much or more than a synthetic.  Beware of the numbers games being played by synthetic supplement companies comparing the amounts of their synthetics to their competitors'.  They are practicing the old Irish proverb, "If a little is good, a whole lot more is better."  In addition, synthetic vitamins and mineral horse supplements do not contain natures amino acids.


The best supplements are made from natural ingredients.  POUNDS blends natural ingredients into a meal for two reasons:

1) In the process of forming a pellet, valuable nutrients can be destroyed.

2) The bonding agent used in the pellet adds weight, which the customer pays for when buying the supplement.


Unfortunately, today's grasses do not have all the nutrients necessary for maintaining healthy animals,  Left to their own devices, your horse could actually suffer from malnutrition.  Even stored hay loses a large percentage of its nutrients.  Supplementing feed is necessary to insure your horse is getting enough nutrients.


POUNDS is made of 25 high quality natural ingredients. POUNDS ingredients are formulated to work together to correct biological malfunction and feed waste.  The idea is to aid in the six stages of nutrition - Diet, Digestion, Absorption, Circulation, Assimilation, and Elimination.  This aids much more effectively, helping to eliminate digestive problems (which may result in behavioral problems). You should see not only a healthier animal after using POUNDS as directed, but a much happier one!

No synthetic vitamins, chelated minerals, artificial preservatives, hormones, steroids, artificial color, or taste enhancer's have been added.

We at Gremida wish to maintain the integrity of the vitamins it contains, and to insure the customer the best product for their money

Donald Heath, President Gremida Inc. Manufacturers of POUNDS, All Natural Supplement for Horses

On a cold winter day, in Oregon early in December 1983, the first bucket of POUNDS was sold to a horse enthusiast. That day culminated a lifelong desire that started in Agriculture School way back in 1943, to develop an all natural supplement for horses. It never was a case of mind possessing an idea!! I was the idea always possessed my mind.

During the last ten years, many natural ingredients were tested separately and in various combinations at our Research and Development Ranch "Shaliko Acers," that has been the home to three Champion Quarter Horse Stallions, a band of broodmares and many colts and fillies. The final formula of POUNDS was arrived at in 1983 and serious testing of this formula began, both at our research ranch and art some of the most prestigious labs in the country. Laboratory test proved that I had developed a profound natural supplement for horses. Continuous testing is an on going commitment here at the ranch. There have never been any side effects noted from POUNDS and all blood screens have been in normal range.

The POUNDS formula is secret: it's ingredients are not! Exact proportions of 25 ingredients have been blended to produce a meal rather than pellets, so as not to destroy the value of the natural vitamins. These measured natural ingredients act upon one another to correct biological malfunctions and feed waste because they are a definite aid to the SIX SRAGES OF NUTRITION!! Die, Digestion, Absorption, Circulation, Assimilation, and Elimination.

Thousands of buckets of POUNDS have been sold since that firs one in December 1983. Horses that were conditioned on POUNDS HAVE WON Stake Races, Futurities, Grand Championships, Halter Classes, Performance Classes, State High Point Awards, World Championships and the Canada National. Horsemen tell us that they can really see the difference in their horses in just two or three weeks and it has improved their horses health, coat, hoofs, and general appearance while reducing stress, nervousness, and post-work-out letdown. POUNDS is sold on a money back guarantee and there has not been one bucket returned for refund.

In this day of scientific revelations, it is easy to forget a few basic facts. When a horse ingests synthetics, all it gets is an isolated vitamin.  On the other hand, natural vitamins are derived from fresh, wholesome ingredients.  Scientists first discovered vitamins in natural ingredients, not in the test tube. Nature really did invent vitamins; scientists did not. One measured unit of a natural vitamin is worth five times as much or more than a synthetic. Beware of the numbers games being played by synthetic supplement companies comparing the amounts of their synthetics to their competitors. They are practicing the old Irish Proverb, "If a little is good, a whole lot is better."”

In 1984 we advertised winners that had been conditioned on POUNDS ”and testimonials (not Paid) from their owners.  In 1985 we are going to advertise a series of educational type ads as we are committed to the following principal: What is good for the horse? Watch for these ads in this publication and other leading equine journals. Why not feed your horse something his body knows how to digest? “POUNDS” is 100% natural!: What did horses eat before synthetics were invented?  As far as we can tell it was natural grasses and grains grown out of our green earth. Natural feeds have always been the best. Why argue with success?”

So many times when we go to the feed store we're faced with a huge decision. What vitamin shall I buy?  Without going into lengthy detail there are only two ways to go, either artificially made synthetic vitamins or 100% natural vitamins.  Which one is the best choice?  What would you rather eat?  Fancy packages and big guarantees have nothing to do with what is inside. We trust you will do what is right for your horse. After all, his LIFE is in your hands!

Lets Talk
            FACT:  Your horse is a creature of nature, not a product of a science lab.
            FACT:  Your horse needs essential natural vitamins and minerals to maintain perfect health. If your horse was developed in a science lab, feed him synthetics.  If he wasn't, feed him an all natural supplement.

Don Died in May of 1986, "RIP"

This is my story!

Sandra Poirier, President Gremida Inc. Manufacturers

Of POUNDS, All Natural Supplements For Horses

December 2005

When Don died in 1986, I opted to keep POUNDS going as I have seen so many remarkable results and have many great testimonials.
In 1980 I was a Northwest distributor for another natural product that was formulated for a different area. This product we felt didn't have enough selenium in it and we now have selenium from four natural sources. I was aware of Don's degree in agriculture and asked him why we couldn't come up with our own All Natural Product. And so we started working on it. Don would give me a list of things to investigate and I became a researcher!

We researched, analyzed and tested multiple combinations, ran analysis on our horses and finally we started to see a vast difference in how our horses looked and acted. Our customers who brought their horses in for breeding, our boarders and people who came to see our foals wanted to try it on their horses so we sold to them. Don would sit in the viewing room and talk, while I saw to the general operation. I finally decided that there was enough interest in our product that it was time to name it and see how it sold.

So then in 1983 our first bucket was sold and from then on it became the supplement of choice. Our customers told their friends and acquaintances and it just kept going. One of the things that has hampered the over all sales of POUNDS is that some of the people thought it was just for putting weight on their horses and weren't informed that it was a supplement that could be fed year around. So we revamped the brochure and then sales picked up some more.

When Don died a lot of people thought they wouldn't be able to get it anymore, and I was fortunate enough when I sold the ranch to keep the same phone number and have managed through the years and with the help of Joe (whom I married in 1989) to continue manufacturing POUNDS. We haven't really done any advertising and we both had other jobs. So what has happened is that by word of mouth it has become more than a part time job and we feel that we are ready to grow!
