(Seguin) -- Although gates open tonight, dozens of little cowboys and cowgirls have already gotten a sneak peek of this year's Guadalupe County Fair thanks to the annual Barnyard Tours.
A number of children from Seguin ISD schools, daycares, home schools and private schools took advantage of visiting the special animal exhibits that are again on hand at this year's fair.

Whether it was chicks, pigs or goats, each child got a chance to get up close and personal with some new barnyard friends. Children this year were also introduced to the new Cowboy Bootcamp Ag-Ventureland.

The new hands-on exhibit is located next door to the petting zoo and includes several stations such as milk a cow, lasso a calf and even allowed some space for tractor riding.

Enjoying the morning tour on Wednesday were students from Ball Early Childhood Center.

Toma Rodriguez was among those enjoying the pre-fair activities with her granddaughter, Rebecca Howell, a Pre-K student in Mrs. Christa Green's Class. Rodriguez says visiting the fair early has definitely encouraged her to come back with the whole family.

"I'm having an awesome day. I'm glad I was able to come out here. I think it's awesome. I mean these kids are getting really excited about it -- seeing everything (and) the animals," said Rodriguez.

Also joining her son on the tour was local mother Sarah Kent. Kent says she really enjoyed the time learning new things with her 3-year-old son, Elliot.

"It's fun. It's really fun to get to see them interact with the different things in a more calm setting without all the carnival and actually learning things about agriculture and things like that. So it's really neat," said Kent.

The petting zoo and Ag-Ventureland are included in the fair’s admission price. Additional tours will continue to be held throughout today. Fair gates officially today at 5 p.m.
