Glad to hear it worked out. Companions can come in different shapes and sizes. When Lucy was little, she had calves as pasture mates. I've heard of llamas, alpacas, donkeys, geese, goats and others as pasture mates.
Not only does having a pasture mate give comfort and security, it also creates competition for food. A lone horse won't feel the need to consume more food as one with a mate.
