Where we enjoy working to help save the Fainting Goat
What is a fainting goat; A fainting goat is a domestic goat breed whose muscles freeze for roughly 10 seconds when the goat is startled or excited, generally causing the animal to collapse on its side. This characteristic is caused by a hereditary genetic disorder called "myotonia congenita". Though extensive medical research has been performed on these goats, there have never been any conclusive results that indicate why they do what they do.
The Tennessee Fainting (Myotonic) Goat is on the ALBC Conservation Priority List
We do offer fainting goat "kids" when they come along, this not only prevents inbreeding within our herd but also increases the chance of the breeds' survival.
Our fainting goats enjoy interacting with people and are not shy or timid, they are all friendly, healthy and happy.
Fainting Goats were on the conservation list when we first started raising them and their classification was listed as "endangered", this was the primary reason we decided to choose this particular breed of goat to raise. The fainting goat is still listed on the conservation list, however has since been reclassified as "Recovering".
When we originally decided on this breed, they were not easily found and were quite expensive to obtain. Their numbers have increased over the years, which has allowed us to be more selective in the qualities and characteristics that we look to obtain and introduce into our herd.
We register all of our animals, this guarantees their pedigree (Lineage and Purity) as well as documenting their existence
A friendly game of hide and seek
I see you
No you don't
All of our animals are loved and well cared for.
