Keeping family traditions going at the Indiana State Fair includes feeding the adorable goats at Goat Mountain. 

Angela and Scott McColgin bring their city-raised family to the fair every year to embrace Indiana's agricultural side. They live on the northwest side of indy, and the fair gives them the chance to experience things they can’t do at home—like feeding goats. 

Ten-year-old Piper and 6-year-old Lydia have fair photos that go back to when they were only a few weeks old. Between the yearly photo ops with cheese sculptures and tractor wheels, Piper and Lydia always make sure to stop and feed the goats.

“Last night when I was tucking our youngest into bed, she said, ‘I’m ready to feed goats tomorrow!’” said Scott McColgin. “This was No. 1 on her list today.” 

The sisters stood at the fence petting the goats and feeding them snacks, soaking up every second of goat time. One goat slightly nipped Lydia, and she pulled away for a second.

The next she was back with more carrots and a smile.
