From infants to preteens, children flocked to the large white tent outside Burns Hall for the annual Children's Day at the Carroll County 4-H/FFA Fair. Volunteers from various 4-H clubs offered noodle necklaces, stamped bookmarks, paper flowers, face-painting and animal cutout crafts. Despite the sweltering temperatures Tuesday, the tent stayed full, except for a brief respite during lunch, for the entire 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. event. Several day care centers brought their children. Moms and a few dads, along with some grandparents, followed little ones around from craft to craft, adding to a goody bag already filled with projects for the kids to do at home.

It's a legacy passed from generation to generation.The 100-acre site in Timonium is an oasis of agricultural Americana in an urban setting. Even though farming and homemaking methods have changed over the years, here is a place where city children can still come to see live calves and baby pigs, chickens hatching from an incubator or the largest pumpkins in Maryland.

Approximately 50 horses will be on display for auction at the Carroll County Agriculture Center in Westminster on Sunday, Feb. 26. One is blue, another has stripes and another has balloons. Another has the scene of a fox hunt painted on its side. Yet another comes with two tickets to a Broadway show. These horses don't eat much and can easily fit into your car - they aren't real, but rather a mix of ceramic statues, wooden models and others - all created for the "Horses of Many Colors for a Cause Retreat Round-Up," a fundraiser hosted by the Horse of Course 4-H Club, and benefiting The Retreat at Beckleysville.
