Haybale, the Pet of the Day
Name: Haybale
Age: Five days old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fainting Goat
Home: Charlotte, North Carolina, USA
   This is Haybale, a female fainting goat pictured here at only two days old. She is a fainting goat because when she gets scared or frightened her legs will stiffen up and she will fall over for a few seconds. When she faints it looks as if Haybale has died, but she quickly gets back up and resumes her playing and cud chewing. It does not hurt her at all, it is just historically a defense mechanism for these goats.

    Haybale is full of life and love and has became our favorite goat. She is just adorable, and already so full of personality and spunk! Haybale is now five days old, but just as cute! She will eventually grow up to be around 30-40 pounds, like her mother. We look forward to watching her grow, and to the inevitable adventures and trouble she will get into! We love her very much.
