"The Wombat is a Joy, a Triumph, a Delight, a Madness!" ~ Dante Gabriel Rossetti
For a moment I thought you were serious. Happy New Year!
Now, Marja-Leena, why do you assume I'm joking?! I'm going to breed them very tiny so that city dwellers, too, can enjoy the glory that is the fainting goat. I weep with joy.
OMG...I heard about it, but this is the first time seeing it.I want one!!
The poor little faun* Zone exhorts:"Kees Thee GoatS--Thee Goats will set *You* FREE! " :D*"Pan's Labyrinth"
There's farm in Tennessee that specializes in raising these goats. The farm and the goats were featured in an episode of Dirty Jobs. Truly hysterical watching Mike Rowe running around trying to scare the goats to make them faint. (It's a hereditary disorder that makes them faint but I can't remember what it is.)
So weird- I heard about these goats quite a few years ago, and now La Wombat, Mythbusters and apparently Dirty Jobs are featuring them.I believe there's some sort of chemical physiological change that stiffens the muscle of their legs...it's pathetic, but freakin' funny.
The zeitgeist strikes again!
