There were thoroughbreds and foals, muscular lines and wavy manes, but all without horse trailers and with a much easier cleanup Sunday. Saddles-n-Spurs, the 4-H horse club, held its fourth annual model horse show Sunday at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. Instead of riders lining up at the gate to a show ring, young girls carried their entries of model horses to the center tables and dusted them off before the judges gave the models a scrutinizing eye. Like their real-life counterparts, the model horses were judged on the body and build of their breed, said Rebecca Lawson, a judge from Boonsboro.

Faye, one of 125 goats entered in the fair this year, will return home with Patterson to Kearneysville, W.Va., as the Overall Grand Champion in the Youth Division for meat goat breeding classes, which were judged Wednesday. “I don't have any interest in eating goat,” Patterson said with a smile.
