I have read several different sources that state the fainting goat breed tends to respect fences more, and thus are not as difficult to keep fensed up. Just wanted to see if anyone here had experience with them and could substantiate the claim.

I have Kikos and electric fence without any issues. Pick the breed that fits your need best.

Have not had any trouble keeping goats contained with an electric fence either.
