Hello! I'm Lacy, and welcome to Midwest Fainters! Our goat farm is ran by a village we like to call our family including: myself, my two kiddos, Carson, 10, and Kynley, 7, along with my husband Geoff.
Our name came from living in the great Midwest, our passion for being outdoors, and our new found love of fainting goats!
In May 2020 we got our first two fainting goats from a registered breeder. Hank and Opal were the perfect additions to our "farmily". A short three months later we said our good-byes to our sweet Hank. Opal is now thriving with her new companions!
We currently have 3 does, Opal, Shimmer, and Shine. Along with our buck, Ralph, a wether Nigerian Dwarf, Snowie and just added a wether Boer named Blaze! We also house a black angus yearling named Angus and two miniature donkey jennies named Penny and Poppy!
ABOUT OUR MIDWEST FAINTERS
One thing to know about fainting goats is that they rely on companionship. Many breeders recommend having more than two goats.
Fainting goats: also known as Myotonic Fainting Goats, Tennessee Fainting Goat, Falling, Stiff-legged-Nervous Goat. They have a hereditary condition called Myotonia Congenita, which causes them to stiffen or fall over when startled. They can reach in heights anywhere from 17-25 inches tall, and 60-175lbs.
Our fainters are grade 5 fainters, meaning they have all "fainted" or fallen over sideways. They provide our family so much love and entertainment, and hope they can yours too! Our goats are 100% family raised and perfect additions to our little "farm family".
We take pride in providing the best for our goats, as well as keeping them well groomed, healthy and vaccinated twice yearly.
