I had a strange episode yesterday - I was singling out certain goats that needed worming, vaccinations and hoof trimming. I have a 2 year old pygmy cross wether that had his head in the hay feeder with a bunch of sheep and I quick grabbed his collar and pulled him back out of the crowd. The next thing I knew, he was on the floor and I stumbled over him. I thought "what in the world"!! When he stood up, his back legs were stiff for a few seconds and then he was fine - it looked like he fainted! His grandfather or maybe greatgrandfather was a fainter and I never saw any sign of fainting babies until this episode - maybe he just faltered and I fell on top of him, but it sure seemed like he fainted. Is this possible that the recessive gene can still cause fainting?
