See Pics of the Adorable Baby Animals at Indian Ladder Farms in Altamont

We couldn't have asked for a better Sunday to hang out at the baby barn at Indian Ladder Farms in Altamont. Full disclosure, I was tempted to sneak home a baby lamb. Thankfully, I resisted the urge, but man these goats, piglets, lambs, and calves were too dang cute!

The sun was shining on a cool April day, the perfect backdrop for family fun on the farm as Brian and Chrissy hosted the annual event announcing the new names of the super-cute babies added to the barn.

Guests were invited to submit their best suggestions, and 8 babies got new names.

See pics of the sweet, furry animals (with their exciting new names) as well as a bunch of other pics taken throughout the fun day we had at Indian Ladder Farms in Altamont.
