Information on Goats at Grimm Acres, Diversified
Fainting Goats Tennessee
We have two breeding bucks, Luscious Luke and Ranger. Luke is a
beautiful, all black, long haired goat from Indian Creek Fainters in
. Ranger is a
sweet, polled, black and white guy who is smaller than Luke. With the two bucks
we are able to have separate families and so can now offer breeding pairs of
As of January 2015 we have three breeding does, June Bug, Gracie
and Mocha. The girls are sweeties, and we so enjoy their company.
The kids (people type) that visit love to see them “faint”.
We ensure our does are current with CD&T and revaccinate as needed to
ensure they will have had the vaccine within one month of the expected kidding
date. We worm all of goats according to The FAMACHA method. You can read about
the FAMACHA program in detail on the website @www.scsrpc.org.
In the winter or anytime the weather is at an extreme we move our expectant
does near the house so that I can keep an eye on them. We have ‘hoop houses’
with plenty of clean straw and heat lamps for cold weather.
During the summer, if the pasture is good and it is not rainy or “crazy hot” I leave the does to pick their own spot to kid. Fainting Goats rarely have problems kidding and are excellent mothers.
