Where are all the goats? (and sheep)

Maybe it's because I grew up on a farm, maybe it's because I like the weird side of the history of exploration, maybe it's because I'm crazy ( highly likely ). But! I can't help but thinking... "where are the goats?!"

We have cows, pigs, alpacas, thrumbos, chickens, and 3 kinds of domestic dog ( we can even milk an elk! )... Yet the most widely consumed red meat and milk producer world wide isn't a thing? Even historically speaking, explorers brought goats along with them ( among other things ) to turn loose in to new found lands so that future exploration parties years later ( and stranded whaling ships ) would have something reliable to eat. Ask somebody from New Zealand, Australia, or Hawaii how that went...

So I ask this, is anyone willing to help create either

A: Project Capra = Throw a few goats in to the game! Likely a Saanen goat for milk, Boer for meat ( or a kiko!), and a Cashmere for fiber? I'm open to any and all suggestions though!

B: Project RimFarm = Throw the goats in with more livestock that people would like to see!

I can handle coding them in ( I hope ) but as far as art goes I'm not the greatest so I'm hoping for help in that department. Though any help, advice, suggestions, or feedback are all greatly appreciated ( even if it's just to tell me I'm off my rocker [be gentle with me please] )

Side note: The goats would be able to haul a bit as they're used as pack animals IRL already.

I could make a VERY basic mod for this, I want something to work on. The art would even be OK.
Rimworld: A game where you're kept as entertainment for thousand year old robots, and you just don't know it yet.
Any mod requests?

The question is whether you would want a wild variant, what it should be called, what animal I should base it off of, etc.

Wild variant yes! It could just be called "goat" to keep things simple. I'm just thinking it could be like a mini muffalo giving both milk and "wool" but in lower quantities. (Its not technically wool that they give but oh well)

If you do wind up making this I really appreciate it!
Sorry for the delayed reply, I haven't had nearly as much time to come on here lately as I normally do.


Also very interested. I've just started dabbling in mods myself, and I'll help if I can. Goats and sheep need to be added, and I really think a farming mod would be good to have as well.

Even if they are lonely, rubber boots aren't a thing either.
