“Although this goat was not a beloved pet, I adore this photo of it with my eldest daughter, Adeline, now almost 7. This scene played out at a pumpkin patch petting zoo five years ago. The two have the same expression, and even Adeline’s pigtails and the goat’s ears match. The image embodies the love of animals that runs deep in my family.” –Jessica Roberts , Camarillo, California

“Our family owns Stikeleather Genetics, a show pig operation. ‘Were you raised in a barn?’ applies to our son, Briggs. From day one he has tagged along, and he’s developed a deep love for Duroc pigs. He can’t wait to start showing them this summer.” –Hannah Stikeleather Laura, Ohio
