Here in Southwest Georgia, if you want to clean up some overgrown land, you use goats, or Brahma cattle you supplement with molasses. Something about the molasses makes them eat a lot of things they normally wouldn't. Anyway the Chief had a herd of goats. You fenced in the land you wanted cleared and turned the goats loose. When they weren't clearing land, they stayed in a pasture at the home place right behind the barn. Among the herd were some Myotonic goats, fainting goats. The pasture was close to the porch of the big house. When Chief had some guests, and they settled in for tea on the porch, the goats saw them and started to bleat. They wanted to be fed, as they were used to visitors providing handouts. When in one of his moods, Chief would go into a rant about darn goats causing problems, getting out, getting their heads stuck in fences and making noise and stinking up the place.  Then he would go in the house and come out with a shotgun loaded with a blank. He would go to the end of the porch, aim at the goats and shoot. Well the fainting goats would fall over with their feet straight up in the air. The guests didn't know what to do or say. After a while, the Chief would start laughing as the goats got up and went about their business. That is how some folks got introduced to the famous fainting goats.
