Goats are small livestock, mainly found in Pandaria, though native populations also exist elsewhere such as in Alterac Valley.[1] Goat's milk is used to make cheese. Their fur can be used to make clothes, such as cloaks.

You'll often find them perched high atop impossibly high and remote stone outcroppings. There are few creatures as sure of foot.[2] It takes unflagging patience and a gentle touch to train obstinate mountain goats for riding.[3]

Although not as wise as the local frost wolves, the goats of Alterac willingly surrendered wool, milk, and sometimes even their life in return for the Frostwolf clan's protection.[1]
