"Fainting goats"? - As in goats that just randomly faint? - do they have some form of narcolepsy?
How the hell did they not become extinct! You would have thought evolution would have chucked that bad apple way back! Picture this, a goat is just lounging around doing whatever goats do when suddenly a viscious predator jumps out of a nearby bush and makes a B-line for this small defenceless animal. Instinctively the goat takes off (not literally of course, it's not strapped to some type of rocket) and tries to outrun it's predator. Then fate steps in and plays it's cruel hand - in a split second the goat goes from 35mph (or whatever speed goats can manage) to 0mph. Tumbles along for a few seconds, totally oblivious that it's about to become a fast food. There you go - end of goat.
Thats how it would be if they were wild but, they are raised on farms, never lived in the wild. You see back in the 1800's some guy's goat in had a kid (a baby goat) and after a wile it grew up.One day the guy's son jumped out at the goat; it fell over, the boy thinking he had killed the goat ran over to it and discoverd it had just fainted.As the goat grew the guy and his family began to grow fond of the goat's fainting abilty and the guy not wanting the fainting abitly to die when the goat did serched all over the USA trying to find anthoner fainting goat, one day he did. He bought and brought and put it in the pin with his other goat.The rest is all history.
So you see faiting.
goats are a freak of nature.But thanks to some guy the freak of nature now thrives on farms across america.
