Myotonic goats have a very distinctive breed type that is based mostly on head and body conformation. They also have a muscle condition called myotonia congenita. This inherited trait leads to an overall increase in muscle mass so that the goats are very muscular when compared to other breeds of similar size. This trait is so distinctive that it is easy to confuse the trait with the breed. However, the Myotonic goat is much more than just a myotonic condition; it has a host of other consistent traits that are very important and need to be conserved for future generations.

Several important characteristics are typical of the breed:

  1. Docile temperament
  2. Myotonia congenita leading to stiffness and muscularity
  3. Abundance of high quality muscle
  4. Good adaptation to low-input forage-based feeding systems
  5. Genetic distance from other breeds such that crossbreeding yields great hybrid vigor.

Our goats rarely need chemical or herbal dewormers.

Our goats are low input, thriving on browse and hay and a quality Dynamite mineral buffet only.

Our goats are quiet.   Adult fainting goats rarely climb.

Our fainting goats are registered with the Myotonic Goat Registry adding value to your investment with the potential for registered kid sales.

We offer mentoring to our buyers, both before the sale and after.

FREE mentoring package included with your goat purchase

Some general points about our herd and sales

Boys for sale as bucklings can be wethered (neutered) at buyer’s request.   Bucklings will not be wethered without a deposit plus a non-refundable neutering fee of $50.  The deposit and neutering fee are applied to your final total purchase cost.

Please carefully review our list of currently available goats.  We are happy to provide additional photos or video, or arrange a live video call on Skype or WhatsApp to finalize your choice.  We do not do on-site kid visits until a deposit is paid, as we have a very full farm schedule (including paid tours of the goat operation).

The price of the goat includes registration certificates OR signed application with MGR.

Kids can be picked up at three months of age or later.  We do this for their social development.

Our kids are dam-raised.  We do not sell bottle babies.  Kids may be shy at first.

We maintain a closed herd and currently have no known health problems. Nevertheless, we do not guarantee our goats are CAE/Johnes/CL free or free of any other diseases or health problems.  We CAN guarantee that all parents were tested and negative in the calendar year of your purchase, and the testing certificate is posted publicly on our website and Facebook page.  Some diseases can lurk and not show up on tests, and it is difficult to entirely remove transmission risk on any farm that has outside vehicles/visitors or wildlife coming and going.

Goats are herd animals and will be very unhappy if you just have one; they need the company of their own kind. Because we care about our goats, we will not sell just one goat to anyone unless they already have goats.

Males are neutered (wethered) using a burdizzo, which causes the testicles to atrophy.  Sterility is within days.  However full atrophy may take 3 months and the wether will retain a small scrotum for life.

Fainting behavior (myotonia) varies by diet, weather and other factors.  Barakah Heritage Farm does not guarantee the frequency/intensity of fainting (myotonia).  If fainting pictures are available for a specific goat, copies will be provided to the buyer.  MGR will accept goats with the degree of myotonia varying from no obvious myotonia to mild stiffening to frequent full fainting, provided other characteristics are consistent with the breed standard.
