He has bad seperation anxiety and we are moving my filly to a new place and getting a big warmblood but she won't be in the same paddock as my gelding.

Is it safe to keep a mini in with him? He is great with other horses...
As long as your horse or draft doesn't have an aggresive personality, there is no reason why you couldnt. Mini make absolutely phenomenal companions for all 4 legged mammals. My mini was used for years as a companion horses to my mare or other horses I have owned. At the old barn I was at, she in fact was used to settle down a really high strung warmblood that couldnt be put with anyone else.

Minis are absolutely fantastic for it. Introduce them slowly and keep a close eye on them for the first few days.

I have seen a 27" mini with a 16.1 TB mare and the mare only warned him if he aggravated her. She never hurt him. But I guess it all depends on the personality of the bigger horse.
