All except pigs are fine for companion animals JLynn, except that goats are escape artists.
There's an old saying, 'If it won't hold water, it won't hold a goat', so your fences need to be as goat proof as possible if you want to go that route.
Goats will eat the weeds your horse won't touch though, so that's on the plus side of the equation.
Don't get pigs. Once they become sexually mature, many of them become aggressive. Plus, they need someplace to wallow as pigs have no sweat glands.
A mini or two would be fine, but you have to worry about foundering them if they get too much grass.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
