Buck – Myotonic
Wild Haven Walt is a yearling myotonic (fainting goat) buck born in February 2022 from Cowboy and Gloria. Walt is a sweet and cuddly goat who loves pets and being near people. He faints readily and frequently drags his hind legs when startled and will fall completely. With a strong myotonia, he is less playful than some bucks but will joust with bucklings his own age. His coat is soft and full with a good chance of maturing into a true miniature silky fainter.
