||Five days old|
||Charlotte, North Carolina, USA|
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
