Should pet rabbits have rabbit company?

Can rabbits be alone or do they need other rabbits as company?

If the rabbit want company, then yes. 
But male rabbits usually (there is exception) don't work with other rabbits. Male and male can end up in a blood bath. Two castrated males, can possible live together. But nothing I recommend. 

A castrated male can live with a female and that usually work good. Two females can also work together without problems.

So if I were to castrate our male rabbit, we could possibly get him a female as company? :)

#2 Yes! They love company. But not all of them work together. It depends on their rank. But most of them will be able to live together. They just need big space :)

#3 Okay, great! Our rabbit lives in a horse stall, therefore he's got lots of space. Maybe it's time to castrate him then.
