    That's what I think about goat !

     

    spawn: - plain

           - forest

     

    drops: - fur

           - goat meat

           - goat's milk (with right click on it with an empty bucket)

           - wool

     

    specificity: - she runs towards items what can she eat when she is thrown to the ground

                 - it can charge the player and inflicts damage

                 - it has different coat colors

     

    dimention: 1 block high 2 long and 1 wide

    One unique thing about Goats is that they sound like humans when they yell.  (Look it up on youtube, it's scary).

     

    To that end I would suggest that the Dev team yell into a microphone and then use those sound bites for the Goat Mob. 

     

    Can you imagine just walking along the Extreme Hills and then all the sudden Dinnerbone or Jeb is YELLING at you?

    Maybe they could be tamable and you could ride them up steep cliffs since goats are known for being able to climb really steep walls? They could spawn in extreme hills.

    Please explain why they should be added. Where would they spawn? What would they drop? What special features would they have?

    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.

    Yes, but only if they try to taste different weird items like buckets and books

    Yes!! I love goats! I think it'd be great if they were like the horse mob - as in, a spawn egg would spawn you a goat from a whole bunch of varieties. Some could be spotted (black, brown, gray), some could be solid, some could have socks, etc. The goat could also be male (big ram-like horns) or female (smaller horns). I think it'd make sense if they spawned in hilly/mountainous biomes like mountains (duh), taigas, extreme hills, etc. as well as in tundras.

    I’d support this, especially with the additions in the comments!! Maybe add something adorable for baby goats, like jumping around like they do in real life?

    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.

    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.

    I could get down with goats. My friend has a pet goat, and they are pretty cool. Personally, I'd like them in the Mountains, but llamas are already there; unless if goats and llamas hate each other and fight over territory.

    This has literally no information. How did this get so many upvotes? What is there to review? Please DON'T add goats. They will be useless if no information is given.

    Spawn: Mountains are a goat's natural habitat.

    Drop: Goat milk, goat meat, goat cheese, leather.

    Behavior: Ramming their heads into living things. When ramming into a passive mob, no damage will be inflicted, because they're just playing & players will find it amusing. When ramming into an aggressive mob, damage will be inflicted. It would be especially funny to watch them ram golems & trees.

    Food: Anything that grows, dropped leather, wool, hay, vines, lily pads, berry bushes, leaves. They aren't consider a nuisance for nothing.

    I like the Idea of Goats. I think they should:

    1. Yell. Goats Scream. I think it would indeed be cool if Mojang's sound crew recorded goat sounds (Bleating, Yelling like a person, etc) and added them to the Mob

    2.Kick, and Headbutt. Goats attack in this fashion, and it could be useful in fighting other mobs.

    3.Be Tameable, and Rideable (with them occasionally going their own direction while one is on them, as opposed to no control at all) They could be useful to ride in the mountains (Extreme Hills) as it would make it a bit easier, but not quite, to get up. They would be smaller than horses, which helps. (Also, they would be another pet)

    4. Be a sort of annoying, but still quite silly nuisance. (Because lets face it. They're goats.) Such as, jumping out of their pens, and eating crops, causing a sort of, but not quite easy problem to fix.

    5. Spawn differently. (Depending on biome) The Extreme Hills biome could spawn mountain Goats. (The plains just, Goats. Maybe when in forests they could have a chance of having a broken horn. And more for each biome.

    6. Baby goats could play with each other using the previously mentioned kicking and headbutting, except that they wouldn't hurt each other as often as they would other mobs.

    7.Spawn in other Dimensions, because goats Would do that for no reason. In the Nether, they'd have a "Demonic" looking coat, (as a joke to the fact that many people think of Goats as Demonic. This would go along with the other mobs accepting them) they'd be great at escaping falling gravel, and avoid all lava. In the End, they'd have a semi-transparent coat, that looks mysterious, and just jump around, playing while you fight the Ender dragon. Maybe even teleport. (Maybe playing with Endermen) (Maybe the screaming like a human that they do would happen more in the nether.)

    8. Have multiple different coats just like horses.

    9.Attack when Provoked. (Illagers, mobs, Players, etc. )Like wolves, if in groups, will gang up on them.

    10. Be included in Pocket Edition, if included at all. Please. 

    So please, Please add Goats!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Goats should be able to do the move headbutt, which knocks back the enemy to the equivalent of knockback II, can disable shields, and weakens armor effectiveness by 40%.
    It's horns, when placed it the middle of the shield, allows you to knockback an attacking opponent( there will be a slight indicator that's tells you when able to shield bash) and a slowness effect for 2 seconds.
    Cooldown will be 10 seconds

    Goats aren't really fitting for Minecraft, in my opinion. If you included features like MacchuPicchu96 said, then I might consider it.
