Hoof Seminar Recap and Saddle Fitting Clinic

Dr. Mark Silverman discussing the function of the equine hoof.

Dr. Mark Silverman discussing the function of the equine hoof.

Our hoof seminar on September 4th with Dr. Mark Silverman DVM was quite a refresher for some of us and some new information for others. The hoof is a very complex structure, that not only absorbs shock and supports the weight of the horse, but also acts as a pump to help blood flow back up the leg after the hoof makes a step. Dr. Silverman reminded us just how much force and trauma the hoof is dealt on a daily basis. He introduced us to the applications of therapeutic shoeing and the theory of adaptive shoeing.

It’s really true what they say, “No hoof, no horse!” If you attended, we hope you enjoyed Dr. Silverman’s very informative lecture.

Mazuri Chinchilla Pellets, Top Rated Complete Chinchilla Diet!

Mazuri Chinchilla Food, available at Mary's Tack and Feed.

If you have watched a news channel or opened up a newspaper in the past week or so, you’ve probably heard about how over 420 chinchillas were recently rescued from a fur factory in Southern California and are steadily becoming available for adoption from the San Diego Human Society.

Chinchillas are adorable, soft, delicate, and require unique care to stay happy and healthy. One of the most important pillars of any animal care is a complete and appropriate diet. Mazuri Chinchilla Food is nutritionally complete, contains multiple fiber sources, including timothy hay; contains flaxseed; has live probiotics to promote gastrointestinal health; contains natural vitamin E and stabilized Vitamin C; and smells sweet for high palatability.

Mazuri Chinchilla Food is raved about amongst Chinchilla owners and enthusiasts for it’s high quality nutrition, while also being very affordable. A 25lb bag at Mary’s is $19.99, and a 25lb bag goes a very long way for rodent that usually weighs less than a few pounds.

Your newly adopted Chin will be very pleased!

If you come in for a bag, don’t forget to also pick up a bag of Oxbow Small Animal Hay. Not as economical as buying a full bale of timothy hay, but not everyone has room for an 80-100lb bale of hay! Oxbow Hay is also another Chinchilla owner/enthusiast favorite for its high quality and affordable products. It comes in several strains of hay such as Western Timothy, Orchard Grass, Alfalfa, and Oat Hay. Oxbow products are available on our website as well as in store. http://www.marystack.com

The Pack N Go Dog Park Backpack

The Pack N Go Dog Park Backpack is the next hit with all the cool dog moms, and we’re a little bit in love as well! Mighty dog products donned this pack the ultimate accessory with sturdy, durable canvas and well designed versatility.

This pack isn’t your average backpack, there’s a zip away fanny pack for a short trip or outing and a detachable water bladder for long walks and hikes! Multiple pockets give this spacious bag great organization.

Two bowls zip right from a pouch so you can water and feed Fido on the go. A “poop” pocket gives you easy access to doggie bags without having to dig around! (Poo bags not included.) The removable easy-hook carabiner gives you a place to hook up the leash to free your hands.

Now on to the shoulder strap: lots of padding for comfort and a really cool detachable pocket for treats or a cell phone. This bag has lots of room in the main compartment for Frisbees, tennis balls, you name it!

We gave this bag an A+ for the crazy amount of features and accessibility. If we love it, we know you will too! Check it out in store or on-line.

Mary’s NEW Horse Show Booth

The word is out! If you haven’t noticed yet, we have been bringing Mary’s straight to the horse shows at the Del Mar Horse Park. Although our store is a short walk from the Horse Park, now you can grab just the necessities if you find out something was left at the barn (YIKES!) or to get a nice gift for the little ones who won their first blue ribbon.

To every show, we usually bring a few of our favorite show staples: cool shirts, sun hats, helmet visors, saddle pads, horse cookies, doggy poop bags (it happens!), and several samples of our show apparel and tack, along with show essentials (spurs, gloves, hairnets, earplugs, etc.) and new products.

We also try to tag a vendor along with us, so any questions regarding certain products can be answered straight from the source. Even if you don’t need something, our
