Ordon Goats are animals from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. They are a domesticated breed of goats from the Ordona Province. They have blue fur and a single circular horn rather than two separate ones. The villagers of Ordon Village rely heavily on their Milk and meats, a favorite food produce being Ordon Goat Cheese, apparently a delicacy. They also use the horns of Ordon Goats to decorate their houses, as many are seen on signs and roofs. Ordon Goats can also be found in stalls in Hyrule Castle Town. The Light Spirit Ordona resembles an Ordon Goat.

The Ordon Shield features a design based on the distinctive horns of the Ordon Goat. The Ordon Sword is infused with strong Ordon Goats' horns. Before he goes on his quest, Link is a goat herder, working for Fado at Ordon Ranch. His skills for handling runaway goats make themselves useful later on when fighting Gorons. Also, during one of the final battles of the game, Link must fight in a similar manner to wrestling with Ordon Goats. There is a photograph of an Ordon Goat on the wall of the first floor of his house.

Ordon Goats can be seen and interacted with anytime during the day in Ordon Ranch. They can be petted, though if attacked, they suddenly glow an angry red and begin stampeding around the ranch in an attempt to crush Link, much like Cuccos in other games of the series. They will also attack Link's wolf form on sight. If Link is hit by one, he is knocked to the ground, but takes no damage. In a potential head-on collision, Link can grab the goat and throw them to the floor in an identical manner to the early stages of the game.

Interestingly, unlike most other animals in Twilight Princess, Ordon Goats cannot be spoken to when Link is in wolf form. They are also one of the few animals shown to be hostile to Wolf Link.

Outside of Ordon Village, Ordon Goats can be found in a stable in Hyrule Castle Town near STAR Game tent. Since they are in their stable, they will not attack Wolf Link should he come near them, however, they will not talk to him either.
