About Miniature Silky Fainting GoatsAbout Miniature Silky Fainting Goats



Miniature SilkyrnFainting Goats are a small-sized breed of goat that are colorful and have longrnflowing coats and an abundance of facial hair such as bangs, beards and muffsrnon the cheeks, giving them a Silky Terrier-like appearance. They should bernphysically balanced and proportionate, with a sleek, elegant appearance. Therernis no minimum size for either sex, however, does ideally, should be 22.5 inchesrnor under at the withers and must not exceed 23.5 inches. Bucks ideally shouldrnbe 23.5 inches or under at the withers and must not exceed 25 inches. Any colorrnor combination of colors is acceptable.

The coat is the definingrncharacteristic of the breed and is quite important. Ideally, the coat isrna single coat that should be consistently long, straight and flowing, drapingrnover the entire body, reaching nearly to the ground. A slight wave to the coatrnis acceptable. The coat should have a silky, high luster appearance and, whenrntouched, it should feel smooth and silky, not dry or brittle.  Angora-typernor Cashmere-type fiber is not desirable. The coat should include an abundancernof chest, neck and facial hair. Ideally, they will have long bangs and cheekrnmuffs that cover the eyes giving them a Silky Terrier-like appearance.rn
There is no weight standards or limits on the goats but the bucks arernlikely to be somewhere between 60 and 80 pounds when mature. We do not marketrnthem as meat goats but rather as competition animals. Their lean, sleek framesrndo not lend to good meat animals.
