Fainting goats are special for another reason beside their unusual condition. These goats are a popular domestic breed and commonly raised as pets and show animals. Typically smaller than other goats, they are easy to manage and contain. These goats are typically 17 to 25 inches tall and weigh 60 to 170 pounds. Another distinguish characteristic of these goats are their prominent eyes. Instead of having recessed eyes, these goats eyes protrude from their eye socket. Their coats can either be long or short. Fainting goats are known for being docile and friendly. If socialized properly they make wonderful pets.
Fainting goats are extremely rare breed of livestock and were almost extinct a few years ago. The American Livestock Breed Conservancy and many other livestock breeders fought hard to bring this breed back from the brink of extinction. These are such a special breed of goats that there is actually a festival in Marshall County, Tennessee that celebrates these funny animals!
