A Red Bluff veterinarian was honored with the Top Hand Award, the highest honor given to volunteers by the Red Bluff Round-Up.
Dr. Wayne Merhoff who owned the Red Bluff Veterinarian Hospital, has been the Round-Up’s veterinarian since 1977. He was presented with the award Saturday night.
The Top Hand Award is given out annually by the Red Bluff Round-Up to a volunteer who has gone above and beyond the call of duty, giving of their time and talents with the rodeo.
As he has for the past 37 years, Dr. Merhoff will be at the rodeo grounds on Wednesday at 10 a.m., ready for slack competition. Even though he is retired, he’ll be on duty.
