Oak Grove Farm in the town of Kinnickinnic outside of River Falls is home to a herd of miniature fainting goats, such as this 5-week old baby. Goat breeder Ali Egan said fainting goats are also known as myotonic goats. The genetic disorder, called myotonia congenita, causes goats to stiffen and fall when startled. Some goats stiffen slightly; others completely fall over. (Herald photo by Sarah Young)
