The newest Blizzard store mount is here! The Swift Windsteed!


It appears to be a mix of Chicken, Pony, and Goat so I lovingly call it a Chickonyoat.

Ridiculously Regal

Perhaps there’s a little dragon in there too?  I’m not sure… what do you think?

Idle Animations are Adorable



You can buy the Chickonyoat on the Blizzard Store for $25.00.  However, I’d really like to give one out to one of my readers/friends 🙂

As you may know, I really like referring to things with “uncommon” terms.  Simply reply to this post with your very own made up name for the Swift Windsteed by the end of the day January 18th, I will pick my favorite, and you will get a Chickonyoat of your very own!

Looking forward to your entries!

Antlers of a reindeer, ears of a gremlin (don’t feed it after midnight), and hooves of a goat.

Obviously, it’s a Reingremoat.

First thing that popped randomly into my head was Zygoator. What is wrong with me?? Lol

The Prancing Talbugryphgon! (talbuk gryphon dragon)

I’ve been out of the news circuit and learned about this mount from your post just now… I can’t decide how I feel about this creepy critter!

I refer to him fondly as Mr.Goatymustache. x)

I’ve been calling it the MIGHTY WIND GOAT DUCK. Because I can.

Hmm, why did Mr. Snuggles come into my mind firstly? – ha. Errrrm, I would call him something like Goatashio. Lol.

I am a huge Dr. Seuss fan, so as soon as I see this new flying goat mount my mind immediately named it The Flying Funicular.

Funicular goats were featured in “Happy Birthday To You” written by Dr. Seuss in 1959. The passage mentioning the goats is:

And now, on this Day of all Days in Katroo,
The Asso-see-eye-ation has built just for you
A railway with very particular boats
That are pulled through the air by Funicular Goats.
These goats never slip, never trip, never bungle.
They’ll take us down fast to the Birthday Flower Jungle.

Plus, they look FUN so calling them Funicular’s fits very well.

I would call her Madonna, since she is wearing the nipple shield from Madonna’s earlier days

The idle animation *is* adorable. It reminds me of a stance my little boston terrier used to make. I miss her daily. <3 Her name was Stella but that just doesn't cut it for this quite silly yet regal steed.

NIGHT ELF EARS?! (ewww.) and a bushy WOLF tail. Naturally … I'm going to go with oh, I have not a clue. I'm terrible at names. I can't get over those night elf ears eeeeek.

I got it. it's a worgen druid horse (I think i like your goat).

woadrugot. ok. you twisted my arm.

night elf ears….
