Here on the Vollmer Ranch we raise Miniature Zebu Cattle and Tenneessee Fainting Goats
There are 400 million goats in the world, but how many of them can faint?  Fainting Goats are a slightly smaller version of the standard goat, who, believe it or not, thanks to a genetic condition called "myotonia congenita", actually seem to faint when they are startled.  This breed has several names, the most common are Myotonic Goats, Tennessee Fainting Goats, or Stiff Legged Goats.  The names refer specifically to myotonia congenita, a condition in which the muscle cells experience prolonged contraction when the goat is startled.  The transitory stiffness associated with these contractions can cause the goat to stop moving, stiffen, and even fall down.  This is not a true faint, but a muscular phenomenon unrelated to the nervous system.  The actual degree of stiffness may vary widely from goat to goat and is based on a number of factors, including age, species purity, and degree of fright.
We've just started our Fainting Goat program and have purchased quality breeding stock from some of the best goat herds in the country.  We have purchased premium goats from Jessica Olivier of the Dixie Rock Ranch of Ipswich, South Dakota and crossed them with the goats we purchased from Dave Koop of Black Hawk, South Dakota. Thanks to starting with great breeders we have developed a flashy look of our own.
