    and the other white one is Gracie (she is about 2 months into her pregnancy)...They are all spoiled rotten !

    I use to have a fainting (myatonic) goat, they are very nice goats, very laid back and easy to work around! Even though he was a stinky buck!

    Quote:That's not a stupid question....What is called fainting, is actually a stiffining of the muscles caused by the goats being suddenly frightened. If they happen to be walking, they will fall over and in about 10 seconds they are back up again. If they are standing still when frightened, they can usually spread their legs out and continue standing.
