Goats will eat almost anything that is green. They are browsers. They will eat your ornamental plants before they attack the grass. They are also escape artists — and will attack your neighbors' ornamentals if they can sneak out.
Goats do well on a small plot of land if you feed them hay (for roughage) and feed pellets formulated for goats. On a large pasture, they will do well if there are shrubs or "forest edge" plants available in addition to grass. They can share a pasture with cattle or sheep as these latter will graze the grass first, while th goats will browse everything else.
Many towns and almost all cities are not livestock friendly and Homeowner Associations usually forbid livestock as pets. That usually includes potbelly pigs — these originated in Southeast Asia as combination pet and livestock and often live as family pets.

And there is still one large, non-KSS option, quite possibly everyone's favorite hobby ... sex!
