These fainting goat videos are funny no matter how many times you watch them.

As these fainting goat videos show, fainting goats have a muscular condition known as myotonia congenita that causes them to stiffen up and often fall over when they’re scared, or even just really excited. From baby goats, to younger goats, to older goats, all fainting goats suffer from this genetic disorder of muscle tensing.

Neither the condition nor the fainting are harmful, since it is a hereditary genetic disorder, but it does offer a lot of hilarity for goat owners. Here are ten side-splitting myotonic goat videos that show different things fainting goats found faint-worthy.

The step down from the gazebo.

The exercise ball.

The slide.

The swing.

The car horn.

The swimming pool (don’t worry he’s okay!)

The dog.

The electric fence.

The human.

Just breakfast.

Clearly there is no limit to what a fainting domestic goat might faint over, as these YouTube videos show. How lucky are we for that?

Sometimes called wooden-leg goats, or stiff-leg goats who do the stiff-legged shuffle, these funny animals with hereditary genetic disorders have a special place in our hearts.
