"Panda's Paradise Farm" presents the beautiful happy laid back nature of the Myotonic (Fainting) Goat breed......our farm is started a breeding program with premium double registered breeding stock with the Mytonic Goat Registry (MGR) and International Fainting Goat Association (IFGA) in 2018.  We are exceptionally happy with our first herd sire 'Rocky Top'  who came from the "Solis Occasus Villa" Farm in Gasburg VA in March of 2017.  Rocky Top was chosen for our herd sire due to his black and white colors, to preserve the Heritage Tennessee black and white Myotonic (Fainting) goat.  We are so pleased with Rocky Top's sweet nature and friendliness.

 

Solis Occasus Villa Rocky Top Sun gave the farm four beautiful doelings in 2019, and we look so forward to his kids in 2020.  Rocky Top is from exceptional bloodlines.... Sire:  R & R Lazy Acres Gossamer TAG (Black, White & Tan).  Dam:  Painted Quarters Analiesa SUN (Reddish Tan & White).  Grandparents... Sire:  Lickskillet Acres Billy Bob LSA (Silver and White).  Dam: Deer Springs Hootenanny DSF (White and Dark Tri Moon Spots).  

Meet our new sire of 2019!! Bending Tree Ranch Much-A-Do BTR.  We are extremely excited to have this buck delivered to our farm the summer of 2019 from Looking Glass Mountain Growers. Since we retained Rocky Tops doelings in 2019, we had to find another sire for them.   Much-A-Do has served Bending Tree Ranch and Looking Glass Mountain Growers Farms for the past eight years and we really hope he will be with us for several more!  This sire has exceptional qualities that are unmistaken to say the least.  Not just his amazing build, but his attitude, which is key!  This buck was never befriended until now.  It took time and trust and now this gentle giant loves attention.  Look for amazing kids this 2020 year!!

'Panda' was our first introduction to Fainting goats, which there was no doubt in our minds the farm had to be named after her!  With the farm being in a beautiful magical maritime forest, located deep in the woods on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, it feels like Paradise...therefore the name took shape of "Panda's Paradise Farm".  

Panda came to our farm earlier than expected in February of 2016.  Coyotes were trying to get her and her brother on a farm in VA.....so we took this shy little doeling in and bottle raised her when she was only four weeks old.  Although we have other breeds of goats, Nigerian Dwarf and Pygmy, Panda made us fall completely in love with this very sweet nature laid back breed of goat.  

Panda has Myotonic and Mini Silky Fainting Goat genetics.  When Panda started growing, the silky genetics took shape and her coat is long and silky on her hind legs and the ridge of her back, and she has a long white silky beard.  Our first experience with "fainting" was when Panda got very excited for her milk bottle......she would fall over with stiff legs for just a few seconds, then look for her bottle immediately after.  The Myotonic (Fainting) goat does not loose conscious, their skeletal muscles lock up when they get excited or startled, therefore they will sometimes fall over due to the temporary stiffening of their muscles, which will make their legs stick straight out for about 10 seconds.  I have watched my new fainter kids faint on their own and grab a piece of hay and eat while in the locked position....it does not hurt them, however it is suggested to not keep fainters with horses or large livestock due to the possibility of being trampled when they faint.

Meet 'Halo'....she is Tri-Color, White w/Black and Brown) with amber eyes.  Halo is a 5 on the fainting scale 1-6.  This sweet sweet girl came from Pahl's Farm in Maryland and loves attention more than almost all the goats put together!  Her beautiful "peacock" pattern is so flashy, and it turns into beautiful cashmere in the winter.  She is pictured with one of her doelings  Nola.  Nola's twin sibling Angel is a replica of Halo, even her temperament.  Angel and Nola were both retained in 2019.
