Apart from holding the food that the animal like and walking, is it possible to transport animals over long distances?

I'm thinking about what happens if I find a mushroom biome on a boat trip with Mooshrooms; would I be able to transport them home?

    Minecarts are your friend – user28379 Nov 4 '12 at 2:14

Thanks to 1.4, you can just build a nether portal and transport them that way! You'll still be holding the food and walking (or building a minecart track), but the distance is 8 times shorter.

  • Ah, so they would follow me through the portal and then I can use the space dilation effect to shorten the journey home. Good idea! Although I imagine the walk could be dangerous. – sync Nov 5 '12 at 11:32

    @sync: Indeed could, but you can always build a tunnel or minecart track, and a journey in the overworld can be quite dangerous aswell, with all the ravines, cliffs and surface lava pools. :) – Xeo Nov 5 '12 at 19:15

You could build a minecart track and put them in carts.

  • Yeah this one had occurred to me but seemed unrealistic if it was a really long distance. Wish there was a boat equivalent! Thanks – sync Nov 5 '12 at 11:33

    I had to build a 2K long underground track to get villagers to where I wanted in my world. That sucked.... But, took less time than I thought, Diamond Efficiency IV pickaxes are fast! – John Nov 7 '12 at 3:22
  • Efficiency V is even faster! But against dirt it sometimes is too fast and leaves ghost blocks for me... – jrtc27 Nov 7 '12 at 7:06
