Now as I stated in another thread about the myotonic breeds, I was always under the assumption that cross myo's do not faint..however, Gyrro's explained that some do stiffen, I do believe if I recall correctly.  So that's a good question for Gyrro's to answer. Smiley

The way she described the goats "faint" didn't sound like what a fainting goat does. I know they are white and she paid a good price for them because of the quality of their fiber.

Even if it had a fainter several generations back, would it faint? Wouldn't the fainting gene be too diluted?

That's what I don't know, just thinking that IF they are the hybrid one, yes, it would be diluted, but it could be there....ya never know.

Myotonia can affect humans, dogs, and cats as well, so, there is a slight possiblility that this goat could have it.
