Upside Down Goats
In 2006, Tahra and Don Bedwell of New Virginia, Iowa, wanted to get their daughter, Hanna, a pet. Instead of a dog or a cat, they purchased a fainting goat, a breed known for its docile temperament.
Hanna, now 11, fell in love with her goat, Tico, and the family gradually expanded the herd to 30 nannies and one buck. Their 9-acre farm is called Hanna’s Upside Down Fainting Goats.
“We wanted a farm animal that was safe and kid-friendly,” says Tahra. “They are ideal for our small farm, and the kids love them.” Hanna’s brother, Keifer, 4, enjoys the goats, too.
