I don't know. I think a donkey would be the best choice. Especially a young one so they can grow up together. Older donkey's don't always bond with horses. I know that goats sometimes accompany racehorses and I've never heard of a sheep being friends with a horse. I've seen plenty of llamas and horses together and they were never bonded. They just did their own separate thing. Whereas my ex-boss had a donkey that loved the stallion! They'd play together all the time.

In my book it's handsdown the donkey. They are the most like horses (they can breed), they are sturdy for horseplay (hee hee hee) and I've seen them bond with horses.

Just my two cents.

We had a horse called Illico at the yard and he loved his pet sheep!!!!! I would have got Cavan a Ewe or too but I'm allergic to sheep! Sheep are also good because they mow down the patches of grass that the fussy horses leave! That way you don't get big clumps of grass and patches of bare turf where the horses have been!
Donkey's can be at risk of lung worm! So this is something to take into consideration!!
And like anything minature they can have bone problems! It is alot less likely than in other animals because Donkey's are more sturdy but it still could be something to consider!!

Our neighbors have a sheep for the horses. I'd stay away from the donkeys. There is a whole herd of them down the street(mini and non)and they terrorize the draft horse that is stuck with them.
(Its the lady that took the blind horse on animal planet). They may just be so bad because they are in a herd though. I see them for sale all the time for like 300 though,2000 sounds like a lot.

My moms friend that has all the friesens adopted a buero through the mustang adoption thing and she loves it. The noises it makes would drive me nuts but I guess the horses really like him too.

The only thing about the sheep is theirs seems to get bored easy. It escapes sometimes and it seems like it takes the whole town to catch it. Its a black sheep so they say its the black sheep of the family

A matching mini would be cute(if this link works right) www.tbart.net

Remember, you're going to have to shear sheep!

I was thinking along the same lines as Joce. A burro would be a good companion, and they aren't nearly as vulnerable to predators. I don't think I'd go with a first generation wild burro though, as they tend to view all dogs as wolves and coyotes and cats as potential moutain lions and will kill them given the chance. A domestic burro would be a good choice.

Goats can be very difficult to keep in a fence.

Or maybe even a mule?

my ex had a little donkey named Jack that l loved so much, he knew i was pregant and would genly bump my belly every morning i went downt to say hello...he was older and just as sweet as could be. He would sneak up behind grampa dan when he was fishing and steal the tackle box..kicking up his heels as he made his get away. I would have taken him over both saddle breds in a skinny minute.

I still want a great big, ornery red mule. I don't think it's dawned on Charley yet that I've threatened to name it Charley

I'd suggest reconsidering a goat. I hear they are great horse companions and very compatible grazing partners. They bond very well and are cheap and easy to transport. Maybe you can get a nanny and make some goat cheese

Most importantly I think is to not wait too long to get your horsie in herd mate.

I'm voting for the mini donkey or goat.
