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 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.

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

tent provides a nice place to get out the sun and chat with some friends before your next class.
Stop by, even its it’s just to say hi!
Mary’s will be hosting a FREE Horse Health Seminar on Wednesday, July 23rd from 4pm to 6pm.
For today’s sport horse, health is one of the most important factors when he is expected to perform at his prime. As a top athlete, it is up to his caretakers to provide him with the attention to detail and knowledge that will prevent and recognize any injuries or illness the horse may (or probably will) encounter.
We welcome three highly trained guest speakers that will discuss and share their experience and training with us. Dr. Philippe Benoit, former French Olympic Team Vet and one of the top international horse show veterinarians in the world, will be approaching the topic of solving sore back issues in sport horses.
Dr. Mark Silverman, of Sporthorse Veterinary Services, is a 3 day Team Vet Consultant and will be discussing Laser Therapy in equine practice. Laser therapy is a scientifically proven procedure and provides pain relief, a reduction in inflammation and accelerated healing.
Dr. Richard Markell is an FEI International Veterinarian since 1990 and consultant to members of the American, Canadian, Argentine, Japanese, French and Mexican Olympic Teams as a private treating veterinarian. With many years of experience treating horses at international shows, he will be sharing his new thinking for old problems and how sports medicine has changed.
This is a free seminar you don’t want to miss, whether you have just started riding or have trained top of line sport horses for years. We encourage all ages to attend. Please do RSVP to reserve your spot! 858-755-2015.
Since Grand Prix hunt coats have so many variations, Mary’s is hosting a “Wine and Cheese, Hunt Coats Please” VIP evening March 19 from 6-8pm. Krista, from Grand Prix, is flying in from the East coast, and will provide expert fitting assistance, plus swatches and examples of custom piping and collars.
“We have a good stock of tech fabric Grand Prix hunt coats,” said Mary’s English Apparel buyer Robin Wicker. “But many times our customers want that extra customization such as a different base color of coat (like hunter green, brown, French blue or grey) with contrasting microsuede collars and piping. This event will enable them to order exactly what they want to have their own individual look in the show ring.”
Several styles, including the Riley, Quinn and Tech Lite, will be available to try on and customize. AND, for every GP custom hunt coat purchased, the customer will receive a Mary’s Gift Card equivalent to 15% of the purchase price. The gift card can be used on other items within Mary’s.
“Wine and Cheese and Hunt Coats Please “ is free, but you must RSVP. The event is March 19, Wednesday evening from 6-8pm. Mary’s Sales associates will also be in attendance to answer any questions you may have about not only hunt coats, but anything else within Mary’s that interests you.
RSVP to 858-755-2015.
