When a pig is saddled, it can be controlled with a carrot on a stick. Point the stick in the desired direction, and the pig will follow, similar to holding a carrot without mounting. The pig will gradually eat away at the stick's durability, though, leaving a regular fishing rod when the durability is used up. When the carrot on a stick is right-clicked, a quarter of the durability will be spent, and the pig will temporarily double its speed.
| Carrot on a Stick|
- The Carrot on a Stick was an idea from Dinnerbone, who is the same developer who came up with ender chests, flower pots, and item frames.
- Carrots on a stick are perfect to use while pig racing since players can use them to control their pigs.
- A carrot on a stick cannot be crafted if the fishing rod is damaged.
