It could work. We kept a steer with an old gelding one summer while the cows/calves were away for breeding season. They weren't buddy/buddy but they hung out in the same vicinity and kept each other company.
I have a picture some where of my horned Hereford herd bull sleeping right next to a pony with both of them putting their heads on the other.... I never used to grain my Hereford bull so he stayed with that pony every winter for a few years. They were great friends and not even raised together.
