Coryn Dykhouse, 15, walked a miniature horse named Willow around the stables Thursday during the Cape May County 4-H Fair. Coryn lives in the suburbs of Middle Township, but is competing in equestrian events this week on her huge chocolate-chip colored horse named Solomon, which she boards a few miles away… Cape May County’s 4-H is reaching out to more of these suburban kids at this year’s fair, with new activities and contests such as a rabbit show, pet show and color run open to non-members… The group started as an outgrowth of the university-based Cooperative Extension System 100 years ago. The Rutgers Cooperative Extension is dedicated to farming research in New Jersey… The fair has a new Children’s Discovery Farm and bounce-house playground. Kids can show off their pets in the pet show or participate in the new 5K Color Fun Run on Saturday. And there’s a new reptiles exhibit inside the fairground’s Lockwood Center.
