MSFGA is a privately owned organization developed to meet the growing interest in the Miniature Silky Fainting Goats, also known as Mini Silkies. We are dedicated to providing information and registry services for everyone interested in this new and exciting breed of goat.
There are links from this page to the standard for Miniature Silky Fainting Goats, which is in printable format. There is also information on how the process of getting a goat into the registry as a foundation animal, to view that information, click on the “Printable Information” link in the above menu. Your application and pictures will be reviewed by our committee. If the committee agrees that your goat conforms to the standard, your goat will be registered as a foundation animal in the MSFGA herd books. The books are open and will remain open for the foreseeable future.
You must have your herd, business or farm name registered with the MSFGA in order to register your goats with us. There are forms for you to register your herd name and information on how to go about that in a printable format, click on the “printable information” link in the above menu. Information and Applications of registration for kids out of registered parents are also in a printable format which can all be found on the printable information link to the right. For those of you are interested in how it all began, should check out the history page which has pictures and information.
There seems to be some confusion on whether Mini Silkies have to have Nigerian Dwarf goats in their background or not. There is no requirement that the Mini Silkies have to be crossed with Nigerian Dwarf Goats. We encourage all who are interested in developing this breed to submit your goats for foundation approval, regardless of what their backgrounds are. Mini Silkies are not required to faint, so if you have a goat that looks like a Mini Silky, but it doesn’t faint, we would be interested in considering it for foundation status. We are striving for a particular look, if you go to our Visual Standard page, you will see photos and explanations of what a Miniature Silky Fainting Goat should look like.
