When I first heard about the fainting goats I thought they were kidding, too!

No, they're real. You can clap your hand real loud and all the goats will fall down.

Think of all the possibilities for gene research! Kids, dogs, annoying people. The possibilities are endless!

Phyll, the dogs roaming in packs will chase after and attack the goats. A small donkey (which I plan on getting) will kick and bite back at the dogs. Donkey's also make a real good substitute 'watch dogs'.

Thanks so much for the info, its so funny to me to think I would be able to own animals like we said a a donkey no less!

There's no problem to being afraid of guns - and the way to get over that fear, is to know them. Which is why I suggested taking a gun safety course at the local gun club. You may never own a gun, never hold one again in your life, but this way, you'll know about them, and not be afraid of them anymore. IMHO, everyone should take a gun safety course as part of their elementary school coursework.

First day of school here for my daughter was gun safety presented by the local law enforcement. That was Kindergarten. They are always in the school teaching things. My daughter tells the cops that daddy doesn't always wear his seatbelt but that mommy does!

I think the fear is NEVER being around them, seeing what they can do,and the accidents that happen, Yes, I know that is why I should take a safety course , maybe when I eventually move to TN I may actually get guts and take a course, there is no such thing as wasted learning, whether I choose to ever use a gun or not.
