I think many NPCs/mounts need AT LEAST new skin/paint coating. Could use same old crappy model but new skin would make a huge difference.
I dont see them update the old models.
Why would you remake the old model? You'd have to remove the old model to update it to the new model.
And while you do so, you would make some people unhappy. You just could add the new models as new mounts & making both group of people happy.
Probably not all people, since some people always have to fcking complain, but you get the point.
Honestly? New ones should be added. Also if you ask me, one remake should be done. The Wotlk drakes look stupid because we sit on their neck. We really should sit behind their wings, on their backs, like with cataclysm drakes. (And I mean the start of wotlk drakes, not the Ulduar ones, Proto-Drakes). Rusted Proto-Drake is still my favourite mount!
Would be nice if the undead horse mounts actually opened their jaws completely instead of being fused at the teeth. Looks so weird!The lower jab bends in such a weird way if you do /mountspecial.

I would love to see a human horse puts it's head down like my hippogryph when galloping.
Another cool option I could see adopted/assimilated from Wildstar is the temporary /sprint move mechanic they have, like you see in shooters. You can haul ass for 5-10 seconds. Giving mounts a gallop and a canter animation, players with their normal run and a different haul ass animation than the rogue sprint,... I'm going into some dangerous places for these here parts. I'd better put on my helmet.
