How To Get Goats In The Sims 4 Horse Ranch

The Sims 4 Horse Ranch is a brand new expansion for the ever-popular sandbox life simulation game. While we've seen plenty of animals and pets added to The Sims 4 in the past, such as through the Cats & Dogs expansion from 2017, Horse Ranch finally adds rideable and trainable horses to the game. 

In Horse Ranch, players have a number of new lots to explore, including the dance hall and equestrian park. The expansion also adds in a selection of new cosmetic items for your sims, and plenty of ways to customize your horse companions. A core part of this DLC is how your sims will bond with their animals, which isn't limited to just horses. Players can add mini goats and sheep to their lots, which they can care for and raise in their very own ranch. Below, we'll go over exactly how you can get goats in The Sims 4 Horse Ranch.

To unlock and add goats to your ranch life in The Sims 4, you'll need to purchase them. Fortunately, there are two different ways to purchase goats in Horse Ranch, both of which are pretty straightforward:

  • Purchase goats from The Bits and Bales Mercantile in New Appaloosa
  • Purchase goats from the Ranch Animal Exchange, accessed via your Sim's phone or through a unique bulletin board. 

How To Raise & Care For Goats In The Sims 4 Horse Ranch

With your goats now purchased, it's time to learn how to care for them properly. Like most pets and animals in The Sims 4, goats have needs that you'll have to maintain. Players will need to ensure their goats are kept happy, fed, and clean. This means monitoring and filling their needs bars for Hunger, Hygiene, Fun and more. 

Goats will also age and grow, like other animals. You'll be seeing them through to maturity, ensuring they live happy, healthy lives. But it won't be for nothing: goats will give players milk which can be sold or used however your sims see fit. Goats will even help to keep weeds and pests at bay. Eventually, you'll have a full, working farm on your hands. 

And there you have it. Everything you need to know about getting and raising goats in The Sims4 Horse Ranch.
