With the 3nd Annual Fainting Goat Festival approaching (October 7th & 8th), I took some time to learn more about the unique qualities of Fainting Goats.
Some are big & ugly (in a good way)…
…But they ALL faint!

Information About Fainting Goats
Thanks to the International Fainting Goat Association (IFGA), you too, can find out more about these interesting animals:
- What is Myotonia? …more about this condition that causes Fainting Goats to stiffen and/or fall over when startled.
- Why Do They Faint? …rest assured, it is not painful or traumatic for the goat. These Goats Have Their Own Festival!
- Lewisburg Goat Festival …held each October in Lewisburg, Tennessee.
- About The Fainting Goat Festival …a behind-the-scenes look at the festival.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
