Goats right now, in 1.17, are completely useless. Not offense to the development team, but they add little to nothing to the game. They're just neat. But how can that be fixed? Just add a few extra things that make goats a bit more interesting.
In certain betas, goats dropped mutton and had 1-7 babies when bred. That was SO COOL, why was that removed? It's a fast way to get a pretty okay food source. It's not quite beef, but it would be a fun a unique way to breed mobs. Lots of a mobs, but little amounts of food. It would even be fairly balanced.
But those are just things that were once apart of the game, but now aren't. How about some new things? Well, for one, goats have a lot of excess hair, what if you could trim their beards for a bit of string? They could grow them back just by eating grass, like sheep. Maybe 1-2 string, something small, but something that is actually really useful. It's a completely harmless string farm.
If these small changes were made to the goat, they could become a very interesting and fun mob to farm. With the goat horns coming in 1.18, and with these proposed changes, goats could become a mob everyone wants!
