Barn Buddies

So, it only took 8 years to wear my husband down enough to get the horse - I figure he's all softened up for my next proposal Aero "needs" a barn buddy.
I don't think we want/need another horse just now, so I'm thinking along the lines of a goat, sheep, mini-donk --- something on the smaller side and maybe with the added benefit of being a complimentary grazer to eat the things she won't/bring better balance to the pasture (which we are still working on bringing along since converting it last year from "backyard" to pasture.
So, input, suggestions, whatever?????

Go to a local rescue or an auction and I am sure you can find a goat or a mini donkey. I even just a pasture puff. I personally love mini donkeys though ;o)

Yes, will definitely be a rescue. I adore the mini-donks. There is a place a few miles from us that raises them and I love finding excuses to drive past so I an admire them.
