Fainting Goat Guild Wether Program


The goal of the Fainting Goat Guild Wether Program is to encourage our youth to become involved with the progress of this unique breed through raising and showing. It is our hope that the youth will learn the much needed life skills with regards to responsibility and animal husbandry.

The participating youth will receive a donated wether (castrated male). Under the supervision of the Program Director and/or breeder of the donated wether, the youth will receive assistance with the raising and showing of the wether.

The Program Director will help by providing support and direction to the youth and monitor the welfare of the wether. The youth’s family will be financially responsible for the care of the wether, including, but not limited to the feeding, housing, medical care, registration, and show entry fees.

Application requirements

The Fainting Goat Guild Wether Program is open to all youth (7-18) and will be based on the availability of kids and the eligibility of the youth.

Youths must be within driving distance of Mojave, CA or Ramona, CA. Additional locations will be added around the United States as more breeders agree to donate a wether to the program. If you are not within driving distance of the locations listed, you may still apply for the program. The Program Directors will work hard to find a breeder in your area that is willing to participate in the Kid Program.

Provide the Program Director with a 100 word essay on why you should be chosen to receive a wether. Be sure to include how you will care for it and where you would keep it, and you name, address, and phone number.

Provide a letter from your parent or guardian with permission for you to take part in the Fainting Goat Wether Program along with their agreement to be financially responsible for the wether (print Youth/Parent Contract Form).

Provide a completed Project Budget (print Project Budget Form).

Applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2012.

Submit your application to Sue Johnson, 8301 Stagecoach Lane, Mojave, CA 93501

The winner of the wether will be announced in April 2012. Actual date will depend on the number of applications received.
