    yes please!! i grew up raising pygmy goats. this would be great! i agree w/ a lot of the comments.

    my ideas:

    1. Forest goats = pygmies! they can climb trees too! maybe they could be 1 block shorter and 1 block wider lol

    2. baby goats would ride around on mama's back! they do irl

    3. goats could jump up on your roof! they like doing that

    4.they could rarely spawn a bezoar when killed, to be used in potions. bezoars were thought to be powerful antidotes in medieval times, and could be powerful antidotes in game too.

    i think this last ability would really be the thing that clinches the deal for ppl who don't have a special love for goats and need in-game reasons to put up with their annoying nonsense. plus it'd add to their mystic shenannigans, give magic/alchemy oriented players loads of fun and in-game profit. they'd be items of high value for trades. history books say bezoars were worth 10 times their weight in gold, which gives us a pretty exact and even estimate for trade value.

    Goats can be used for many things in real life, so it has a lot of potential in Minecraft. I've seen suggestions for meat, leather, milk, and wool, but wanted to add that they would make a good pack animal, similar to how llamas are.

    Spawn mountains
    Drop horns and fur
    Make goat helmet
    With 5 fur and 2 horns
    Equal defense to Chain helm and small speed boost
    1x2x1
    Breed with wheat
    Rideable with saddle. Little slower than horse but you can put a chest on them for portable storage

    They should spawn in mountains, They should give milk, meat, and wool. However, they should have a chance to randomly headbutt you if you get near. Its similar to how llamas sometimes spit on you.

    Goats will produce wool, meat and milk.

    They will live in mountain bioms, taiga and desert

    They will replace cows, pigs and sheeps (those should not spawn there). It is unnatural to see pigs, cows and chicken everywhere except ocean. Pigs and cows spawn should be restricted to plains and forest. They can not live in all bioms. There must be some bioms where pigs and cows are not exist. So goats will take their place.

    You can have all from one animal (goat), but for balance each one ingredient must be worse than frome other animal (sorry for bad English)

    Wool texture could be different, animal dye for breeding is not possible, meat shall be less nutrient, etc

    You can dye goat wool but you can not dye goat itself unlike sheep. Goats can be white, black and grey.

    P.S. Goat should eat cabbage :)

    Goat drop suggestion!
    I definitely side with the players shouldn't be rewarded for killing passive animals - so here's my way around that to give us a cool new item - the ram's horn!

    Goats should be neutral mobs, when attacked by each other or a player they should turn and ram them with their horns (giving a small amount of damage but a lot of knockback) when goats ram horns with eachother while aggravated there is a small chance for their horns to "break" and drop the ram horn item. This item could have multiple uses but here's a few I thought of to start with:
    1. Can be used decoratively when placed on a tripwire hook
    2. Can be crafted into a horn instrument that a player can use - this produces a sound that can be heard from a distance (this item does not work underwater)
    3. This item can be crafted into a gunpowder horn that can be carried in either hand - this item allows players using an elytra to craft fireworks in midair! Great for long travels and flight.

    Goats like sheep have lived alongside mankind for thousands of years, they are believed to be among the first animals humanity domesticated. Thus I think goats should be tameable via bells, when a goat is tamed using a bell it will cause a small to appear around their neck on a collar. This bell can be heard jingling from a small distance away that way the owner of the goat always knows where their goat is. Also when tamed goats take on their own unique skin, skin to those of domesticated goats.

    If interacted with using an empty bucket goats will give milk, which through some process (idk how Mojang would want to do that) could be made into cheese.

    If killed goats should have a chance to drop wool and/or leather, horns, and one or two legs of goat meat.

    Goats should be difficult to pursue, being faster the sheep and able to scale high or shear mountain sides just like their real world counterparts. Maybe jumping 2 or 3 times higher than other mobs and less likely to take fall damage.

    Goat should spawn in small groups or pairs (as they exist naturally in the wild) and I think should have at least three or four natural variants either white, brown, grey, or black just like sheep, with darker colors being rarer and each goat dropping the same color wool as its fur.

    A villager called a goat shepherd which can spawn with goats around him. Goats could fight between themselves. Goat milk would take away negative effects but not positive ones.

    Goats in the hills and mountain biome! Obtain goat milk! This could add to farming diversity! You can have one person raise cows, you can have your horse farm and with goats the pigs and sheeps would be complete! Goat milk could add a new recipe and again a new shop item for a Cafe!

    This is a great idea!

    Hopefully comes with this Minecon's biome vote for mountains.

    It makes sense, as there are no unique mobs in the mountains, and mountain goats have potential for things like horns and goats milk

    I like the idea of goats coming to Minecraft and think they will add a nice amount of life to the mountain biomes. That being said I think there are some essential things I would expect to see if goats come to Minecraft.

    Like many of the new Mobs I hope to see unique mannerisms like eating, sleeping, Etc... in addition to that goats of many unique mannerisms of their own in real life that I would love to see implemented in their design.

    Head-butting: a goat may head but other goats and it's herd and if tamed May headbutt the player. This causes no damage to the player but is more of a friendly gesture or greeting.

    Screaming: if a hostile mob is nearby a goat will scream causing all nearby goats to faint or run away.

    Fainting: if a goat is attacked by a hostile mob or by the player it has a chance to faint. Essentially it would perform a death animation but the body would not disappear, nor would it award XP or loot. Hostile Mobs will lose interest in a fainted goat and will withdraw, once the enemy is at a safe distance the goat will then stand up and resume its daily routine. Goats may also faint if a player runs up to them from behind, fireworks go off, TNT blows up nearby, or anything considerably startling happens.

    Nibbling is a behavior I would like to see implemented! Goats don't actually eat everything, but they do nibble on interesting things as a way of exploring. I've had goats nibble on my hair, clothes, and fingers, and have seen one nibble on a chicken's tail feathers (the chicken was not very happy afterwards). I think nibbling behavior would be a fun, true to life addition to goats.

    They could spawn in the normal passive mob locations, as well as mountains.  They would be neutral mobs and could be milked.  They should drop horns.

    I know many people think goats should spawn in the plains, but I suggest they spawn in the mountains and in villages only.

    Some added info

     

    Biome Spawn: Mountains, Extreme Hills

     

    Drops: Leather, and the occasional Goat horn ( which can be made ( with leather ) into a boomerang, which when shot into trees, 1/5 brings an apple back.

     

    They are neutral, when provoked, the run and slam their horns into you, causing 2 and half hearts of damage

    Well adding goats in the game would be a good idea. different biomes can have different types of goats like snow goat,desert goat etc. spawning of goats is as normal as other mobs such as cows and pigs. The goat gives leather/wool milk and mutton(meat) and Goat horns. there is a 10% chance that they give the horns. later this horns can be crafted into some new weapon or can be used as trading with the clevic villager. Also goats will eat wheat or haystack and spawn baby goat. Goats spawned in villages wont attack the player but the other biome goats will attack the player if provoked. 

     

    If goats were tamable then they may help you climb mountain regions....also spawning them in mountain biomes would be a good idea. tamed goats(if allowed) can  charge on other and help you in a tight situation. Goats are afraid of vindicators as they roam with axes(more fear options can be discussed). A goat can be customed and requires a saddle to roam.

    Minecraft team truly believe the Goat addon should be added into the game

    I always figured many of the nonhumanoid mob sounds (cow, pig, sheep, ghast) were dev team members' own voices anyway.

    If attacked by a mob or the player and a goat doesn't faint it could also have the option to fight back using a charge or head butt attack that has a chance to push the attacker back. If the goat is on the loses enough HP it will simply flee back to the nearest cliff or mountain side and find a nice safe spot to sit where it's difficult to reach and away from danger.

    If goats are added, maybe ivy could be added, so the goats could eat it.

    It's good idea .
    That's what i think about goats :
    Drops : leather , wool , bone , goat meat
    When right click it with bucket , give goat milk (goat milk for faster regenration health )
