Daily Herald report

More than two dozen painted horses are riding through Barrington again this summer, part of an effort to raise money for the Barrington Area United Way while also putting public art on display in the community.

The majority of the horses created for the Barrington Roundup II cam be viewed in and around the village's downtown, but others are on display as far away as Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital and Deer Park Town Center.

For a complete list of where the horses can be found, visit the Roundup II website at www.bauw.org/RoundupII.aspx. The website is also where people eventually can go to vote for their favorite horses to win a People's Choice Award.

The horses will be put up for sale Oct. 13 at the Roundup II gala horse auction, to be held at Good Shepherd. Tickets are available on the Barrington Area United Way website.
