Genuinely, I'm curious and confused. I really don't know; is it cruel to breed myotonia in goats? I've heard about fainting goats before but I just looked into what they are and I'm baffled. They are a very handsome breed, I'm just confused if the fainting is their main selling point or a unique trait to identify them by? I read that it's not painful, but doesn't it kind of disable the goats? And why breed a hereditary disorder? I know they are bred for meat, and produce lots of cashmere in the winter but honestly I need to know more. Right now I'm just in the dark completely.
