Fainting Hills

Raising and Breeding Myotonic Goats


Fainting Hills is a 20 acre farm in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains, outside the small town of Slanesville.

I started raising Myotonic (fainting) goats in the spring of 2006 for my FFA project and since then it's been a rewarding experience.  I'm currently enrolled at West Virginia University majoring in Animal & Nutritional Sciences.  I  have enjoyed every minute with my goats, since I started raising them.  I guess that's what makes them wonderful pets.  Please take a look around the site and give me a holler if you have any questions.

All breeding stock is registered with the MGR (Myotonic Goat Registry) and IFGA (International Fainting Goat Association).  All kids intended to be used for breeding leave the farm with papers, or the papers are will be mailed soon after.
