Default Thinking of Mini Donkey or Sheep

Ok since I don't want my new horse (foal really) to be lonely or depressed I wanted to get him a companion. i first of course thought of a goat but you know im not too sure about that now since they have a tendency to head butt. So im going between a Sheep most likely a Ewe or a Mini Donkey to share the shed and paddock and horse pasture with my appy/Arab (still thinking of names). The people who owned the ranch before me bred, raised, and trained Quarter Horses (hence the large amount of property and shelter) and they also kept goats. I left a lean two next to the shed/stall which is right next to the stall and is nice and sturdy its big enough for both a sheep or mini donkey and there is a small feed trough right beside it. Both the shed and lean two need some cleaning done to it since my leased mare Topic a year ago. I kept this place untouched by the dogs because i always planned on getting a horse someday and left the lean two just in case because I was interested in goats.
Anyways just wondering opinions I right now since its not the big season do have the money for this my job is good im making the extra money from shows one a month and I will have some money after the puppies are sold not much but some. Im also planning on taking on one or two trainees this summer to be boarded here which always brings in money.
But I was just wondering which sounds better to you guys a sheep or mini donkey ?

I think Mini donkey. That would probably be the best match for the foal.

I also think you should go with the donkey. Idk, but I think it seems weird to have a goat as a playmate for a horse.

If you can afford a Donkey I would go with the Donkey! But I think the Ewe would possibly be less expensive!!

the lamb is very cute. I haven't really been a big fan of sheep in general though. All the sheep that I have known have been very mean. Maybe they were boys though. It's a cute lamb though, I think so.
