CWF Myotonic Meat Goats specializes
in goats with myotonic breeding. Myotonic goats are sometimes called Texas
scare goats, fainting goats, or wooden leg goats. None of these names are
accurate. These goats have a genetic condition known as Myotonia
Congenita. Google it! People, horses, pigeons, dogs, etc can all have this
condition. No one really knows where these goats came from, but we do know
they make hardy goats, with lots of meat and great mothering skills.
My goats are, for the most part, raised on pasture, with a minimum of
human intervention. This is the way goats were meant to be raised. When it
is done correctly, however, they can easily be moved onto a smaller

These goats, when bred correctly, carry an amazing amount
of meat on their bodies. Using a myotonic buck on
commercial does will add meat to your offspring. Your buck
is much more than half your herd!

goats', and think, they look just like sheep! Goats are not supposed to
look like sheep, so please do not be fooled. Show goats are NOT always
Unfortunately, many myotonic goat breeders have chosen to go the 'pet
route'. This focuses on the smaller and less meaty of the breed, and often
times results in the sale of stock that is inferior. Because each goat is
a beloved pet, they will keep sorry mothers and scrawny goats. This is NOT
good for the breed as a whole.
While our goats make great pets, you are guarunteed not to
buy an inferior goat from CWF Myotonics. We have
everything from commercial myotonics and crosses to
TexMasters to full blood registered myotonic goats. We
cull our weak, our bad mothers, anything that is not the
