News clip featuring fainting goats.
Fainting goats, the black sheep of the goat world, are afflicted with a rare condition in which their limbs become locked and stiff when they are startled, causing them to topple over.

Watch the “falling-down funny” fainting goats in this news clip from YouTube.
