I have a gelding who strangely enough likes to be alone. He's been an only horse multiple times and didnt mind at all. We did get a second horse this past fall and we did notice a huge change in him, more playful etc.
Although I should say when he was an only horse he did have barn cats at my moms and two dogs in an outdoor run right beside him at my old place.
To help keep him entertained while I wasnt with him we had a mirror set up so he can look at himself, radio on, outdoor light on at night, lots of stall toys and "toys" in the pasture. He seemed to enjoy that a lot.
In all honesty though, I would try to save up and get him a friend. A small pony, goat, sheep etc. something that can be out in pasture with him but doesnt cost as much as another horse for upkeep.
