Myotonic goats have a host of names:
Fainting Goats, Tennessee Fainting, Tennessee Meat, Texas Wooden Leg, and Scapegoats.
The characteristics of this breed is known as myotonia congenita, a condition in which the muscles experience prolonged contraction when the goat is startled. The stiffness with these contractions can cause the goat to stop walking and/or fall down and varies from goat to goat.
Meat (heavy muscling) or novelty pets
Fainting goat are stocky creatures with more muscle mass. These goats have a higher meat-to-bone ratio, generally weighing in from 60 to 175 pound.
Fainting goats are also less likely to jump or climb (re: escape), which means they’re easier to raise.
Notes: parasite resistance
