Myotonia Congenita is the condition that causes Fainting goats to stiffen and/or fall over when startled. This condition is caused by a combination of recessive genes. Fainting goats can exhibit varying degrees of myotonia. Some will fall to the ground with their entire bodies perfectly stiff and rigid when startled. Some will fall onto their backs with all four of their legs straight up into the air. Others will only stiffen in their limbs and will not fall to the ground. The condition lasts for ten to fifteen seconds, after which time the animal will rise and begin to walk off the remaining stiffness. This condition only affects their external muscles. The Goats are fully conscious while they are in a myotonic state. There is no known documentation stating that myotonia effects the life span of the goats possessing this gene.
The origin of myotonic goats, better known as “Fainting Goats”. has been sought after by a number of people but it only traces back to the early 1800's when a farm worker appeared in Marshall County, Tennessee, with three does and a buck that fainted. It was thought by his dress that he might have come from Nova Scotia. He was a quiet man and wouldn't talk to anyone so whatever he knew will remain a secret forever. He eventually parted from Marshall County but before he did he sold his goats to Dr. H. H. Mayberry. Fortunately Dr. Mayberry propagated them and tried his best to research their history. He could find no evidence of such a breed anywhere else in the world. He was convinced they were a breed because their unique traits are hereditary. (Sited from: IFGA information)
FEATURES:
Fainting goats generally have large and prominent eyes. This feature is often referred to as bug-eyed or pop-eyed. These terms can be misleading, though many have eyes which seem to protrude form their sockets most often it's the structure of the eye socket itself that produces this feature.
The ears should stick out straight out from their head, perpendicular to the ground. The ears should not stick straight up unless the goat is in an excited state or getting ready to head-butt. The ears should not be floppy at all.
Temperament :
Fainting goats very laid back and gentle. The Bucks will be more playful and head butt at times, but it is generally in a playful manner. They are not like the “billy goats” you always here someone tell a story about bending over, and well, you know the rest. They are very affectionate animals and bond easily to humans. They are great around kids as well.
Fainting goats are known as being easy kidders and excellent mothers. Remember there are always exceptions to every rule. Reproduction traits differ and some are seasonal kidders while others will breed year round. Some goats will breed back in the same year and some may not.
Fainting goats are easy to raise and easy to contain. Your fencing does not have to be that strong however; it does need to have good support. You can use a less expensive wire fencing and just have more stakes or posts and this will suffice. The goats like to rub their bodies against the fence to get a good scratch. If you do not have enough posts the fencing will easily bend. If you live in an area with larger predators that would prey on goats for an easy meal, you will need stronger and taller fencing. You may want to consider having the bottom of the fence buried or attach a less expensive type of fencing like chicken wire to the bottom of the fencing and bury that.
What color and coat type do they have?
All colors, combinations, patterns, and markings seem to exist. There are the classic black and whites with varying patterns, different shades of brown, whites, creams and tans. There are unicolored, bicolored, tricolored and particolored goats. Hair coats can vary from short to long, soft to coarse, with many animals producing a noticeable amount of cashmere during the winter months.
General Description: As stated from IFGA
1. The Tennessee Fainting goat is known by a number of names such as Stiff-leg, Nervous, Wooden-leg, and Scare Goat. They are generally a medium size breed. Their breed type is determined by distinctive head and facial features along with body conformation and an inherited muscle condition called myotonia congenita. This inherited trait leads to an increase in their overall muscle mass. Young animals should show visible signs of increased muscle mass and this increased muscle mass becomes more apparent as the animal matures. Fainting goats should be stocky, with obvious width for height. Their body is full, wide, and deep with heavy muscling evident throughout. They are alert, good-natured animals with a conformation that is smooth and functional.
Breed Characteristics: As stated from IFGA
Head: Short to medium long with a fairly straight profile, not convex (Roman nosed) as seen in Boer or Nubian breeds. Nose medium in length, wide and flat. Muzzle broad and slightly rounded not snippy. Jaws should be full and well formed with an even bite. Forehead is broad and the eye orbits are prominent, especially from above. They protrude outward further than in other breeds, giving the head a distinctive appearance with the eyes prominent and obvious. This eye feature is often referred to as bug-eyed or pop-eyed. Normally an evident dip is present at the level of the eyes, separating the head from the facial region. Ears are usually medium in width and length, most often held horizontally from side of head, with possibly a slight twist at the base making them somewhat forward facing. The ears may have a noticeable ripple halfway down the length of the ear, at which point they may bend slightly downward. Both horned and polled animals are typical.
Coat: Coat length varies from short and smooth to long and shaggy. Some animals show a skirting effect around their front and back legs even though the rest of their coat may be short or medium long. Many animals grow abundant cashmere during the winter. The only coat which is not acceptable is one that hangs from the animal in curly ringlets like seen in the Angora breed.
Color: Though it has been told that the original color of these goats was black and white, today all colors, combinations, patterns, and markings exist. Though the most common coloration remains black and white all colors and color schemes are acceptable with no one color or combination being better than another.

Body Conformation: As stated from IFGA
Neck: Well muscled, moderate length. Rounder and more full than dairy breeds. Females more slender and feminine, with males more muscular and masculine. The neck skin on many males tends to be thick and wrinkled.
Forelimb and Chest: Forelimb should be somewhat muscular, well angulated from the side, and tightly attached to the body. Point of the shoulder should be somewhat behind the most anterior portion of the sternum. Legs from the front should be straight from the shoulder down. Joints should be broad, and legs should show good bone density. Chest should be moderately broad.
Back and Barrel: Back strong and level, broad and well-muscled. Ribs well sprung, providing for large capacity in chest and abdomen. The body should be deep and full.
Rump: Neither steep nor level with medium width and length. Tail should be symmetrical, wider at base narrowing at tip, usually carried over the back. Hips show some dairy character. Pin bones slightly lower than hips, wide and fairly pronounced. Thurls placed high and wide apart. Muscling evident throughout.
Rear limbs: Rear limbs should have good angles from the side with no tendency toward excessive straightness (postiness). From the rear leg set should look moderately wide apart, and should be reasonable straight with little tendency to be cow hocked. Pasterns should be resilient, short, and straight. Rear limbs should show good bone density and muscling should be very evident throughout.
Feet: Feet should be proportional to the goat, strong, well-shaped, and even. Hooves should be symmetrical with good heel depth.
Skin and Hair coat: Skin should be clean and resilient with a clean shiny coat. Skin and hair coat reveal the general health of an animal.
Mammary System: Udder proportionately medium to large in size with no tendency to be pendulous. Texture to be free of lumps and scar tissue, fairly firm and smooth. Rear attachment should be symmetrical, high, with halves evenly balanced. Front attachment should be well forward without pocket, blending smoothly to the body. Teats should be two of uniform size and length, symmetrically placed on the udder and free of deformities.
Reproductive System Bucks: Testicles should be 2 of equal size, fully descended, and showing firmness. Teats should be 2, symmetrical and nonfunctional. All bucks entering the IFGA herd book shall have no more than 2 symmetrical and nonfunctional teats.
