Ever since the first expansion for Lord of the Rings Online was announced, most fans have been wondering what kind of mount would be willing to traverse the immensity of Moria's underground networks. It certainly wasn't going to be horses, as eventually stated by Turbine itself. New screens from the Mines of Moria beta have surfaced showing a tester purchasing and riding around on what appears to be some kind of goat -- or ram.

While the image and concept of the goat is subsequent to change -- it being a beta and all -- we have to say that we're big fans of Turbine's choice. Horses were nice and all, but give us a goat/ram any day. We're looking forward to getting our goat on later this year when Mines of Moria finally ships.
