Y'all made this hard. Really hard. Maybe I should've started with something easier…. like “Show Me Your Laundry Pile!” because that wouldn't have been as cute and sweet and squishy and soft and lovely.
But baby animals? I feel like a monster having to turn some of them away to select my favorites! But in full disclosure, it wasn't totally my decision. The farm hand, aka: the homestud, aka: Stuart, helped me to select a few favorites of his as well.
Without further procrastinating on the matter, let's get to our Show Me Your Baby Animals: Top 10!
1. “Future Supper”
I'm sorry. I shouldn't joke about the meat rabbit baby. Let's just appreciate this sweet little kit for all it's fuzzy goodness!
#2. “Shades of Brown”
Twins are so rare in cattle, which is what I'm most familiar with, so it still surprises me to see goats with so many little babies running around! I love all the different shades of brown!
#3. “Charlie The Steer”
Charlie is serving an important purpose on the farm, but let's not focus on that yet. Let's focus on his fuzzy sweetness and those beautiful brown eyes. Charlie, I love you.
#4. “Mildred The Duck”
I can't stop staring at this picture. It brings my heart joy! I have no idea what breed of duck this is, all I know is I want 74.
#4. “Baby And Bull Calf”
Sure, she's not really a baby, but it sounded good. And how sweet is this?! All the bulls I've know are much less squishy and cuddly.
#5. “The Lambs I Want To Steal”
WAHHHH!!! I MISS POCKET!!! Sorry. I forgot, this isn't about me, it's about these stinkin' adorable lambs!
#6. “Prettier Than My Pigs”
I'm not ashamed to admit it. This is prettiest, and sweetest, little pig I've ever seen! I hope it's a gilt so that she can be bred and bring lots more little cute piglets into the world!
#7. “Let There Be Peace”
…on the farm. Baby turkeys snuggled in with a calf? Fu-get-about-it. I want to get in on that farm sandwich.
#8. “Spotty Ducks”
Which I'm sure is the technical breed name for these amazingly beautiful ducks! Is it just me or are there are lot of cute ducks?!? I want to sit with this crew, sip a London Fog, and contemplate life.
#9. “Mama Llama”
… I know, I know, it's an alpaca. But Llama rhymes with Mama and I just couldn't help myself! Look! She's nuzzling him! It reminds me of me and Will.
#10. “Duck Duck”
Sheesh. I did end up with a lot of ducks! I think my heart is subliminally convincing my brain that our farm needs baby ducks. The duck. The green grass. The stare. It's too much! Stop it cuteness!
