Ramgoat

A Ram-Steed

Eastern Middle-Earth was home to a breed of large animals (Kh."Gamil-ibatharâg", Wm."Orain") of the goat-antelope family who were used by some Dwarves and Easterlings as beasts of burden and sometimes even steeds.

Commentary

Tolkien's Books never mention any Dwarves riding Goats or Pigs, however dwarves riding small Horses and chamois are a traditional part of the alpine myths and fairy tales.Riding Pigs is a symbolism usually linked to celtic and norse deities such as Arduinna, Freya or Freyr.
