Birth announcements can be pretty exciting. Perhaps even more exciting, is when those announcements are for new baby animals in our area. Here is where you can check out the newest and most adorable additions to zoos and farms in the New York area. We just love us some animal babies!


Baby goats at Brookhollow’s Barnyard

Take your kids to see baby rabbits, multiple goslings, and even two baby kids (goats) over at Brookhollow’s Barnyard. They're learning to walk but still have lots of growing to do. They're an adorable addition to the barnyard and your children will love how they interact with the other farm animals.
