Goat horns are an item dropped by goats colliding with a solid block while charging.


When a goat rams into a solid block, it drops a horn, up to 2 from each adult goat.


Holding use when holding the horn shows the eating animation and makes a horn noise, identical to the horn sound heard during raids. The animation is not visible in first person.

It has been confirmed by Ulraf on a Twitch live stream that expanded use is planned for the goat horn.[1][2]
