Proof that 20lb Donkeys are Stronger than Goats

I'd like to thank 20lb Donkey for sending me this link (I love their song "It's All Over"!)

Have you ever seen a goat faint? Did you know that there's a breed of goat that faints when startled? I'm not kidding! Okay, they don't really lose consciousness, but they do stiffen their legs and appear to faint.

Every year, there's a festival in Marshall County, Tennessee that celebrates this particular breed, as the Fainting Goats were brought to the area by a man named Tinsley around 1880.

Check out this video:

Geez, I learn something new every day...
