Many of you have met Merle in the nursery but what you don't likely know about Merle is that she and her husband, Brian, have a small farm, where they raise their High Roller Miniatures. They will be bringing several of these small horses to the nursery on Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm for a meet-and-greet. So bring the kids, (or, the kid in you) to see these sweet animals. Photo ops a plenty - bring your own camera or if you prefer, let High Roller Miniatures take your photo and burn it to CD (for a small fee) as a lasting memento. To learn more about miniature horses you can visit the website of The Northwest Miniature Horse Club (Northwest Miniature Horse Club) and if you would like to see a few more photos of the horses, go here.
You can also catch Merle in the parade - look for her and one of her babies, Shake Em Up. After the parade, come on down to the nursery at 3528 NE 50th Avenue to meet Shake Em Up and his pal Ante Up! The parade is scheduled to start 10:30 am. This promises to be a really fun day - I hope that you'll be able to stop by!
