Tempermental Jack donkey and a shetland.

I currently have 2 doneys in our field - 1 antisocial Jenny and 1 friendly but tempermental Jack. I was thinking of adding a shetland to the situation.
What would be the best bet gender wise? Here are my thoughts;
*Stallion- I think the Jack may bully him and with him being tempermental I wouldnt want to add to it.
*Mare-would the Jack annoy her when she's in season and do you think he could possibly inpregnate her?
*Gelding- can't think of a down side but they are extremely hard to find!
Do you think it would be possible to safely add another pony?
Im think I may be going to a sale at the end of the month and hopefully I will find something, im up for a challenge!

Geld the jack! Then it won't matter. If you are not using him for breeding then why have him complete? I recently acquired a jack as well and I can't wait till Oct when I can geld him. He is kept with my quarter horse mare, and unless she would lay down, he can't do his job per-say, but donkey jacks can be and are very unpredictable in their behavior when there is a mare in heat near by. They can become very dangerous and nothing will get in between them and the mare. Both will be much happier.
