Tennessee Stiff Legged goat

The Tennessee Stiff-Legged breed, sometimes called the Tennessee wooden-leg, nervous goat, scared goat, fainting goat, fall-down goat, or myotonic goat, was reportedly first brought to Texas from Giles County in central Tennessee.[14] Mason[7] lists the breed as imported from Asia, possibly India, in the early 1800s. The breed has a condition called myotonia congenita. This disease state is not detrimental to the production of this breed, which is known for its heavy muscling (Fig. 1). Lipicky and Bryant[15] have implicated the role of the chloride channel-1 (CIC-1) gene in the disorder.
