This is similar to another question I posted, but in reverse. Can I spawn a sheep (or any other entity) to ride another, existing entity, like a player or another sheep?

  • You don't really need a separate question for this. – Frank Dec 19 '14 at 21:49
  • @Frank It is a different question. The answers will be quite different because of the way Minecraft commands work. – James Westman Dec 19 '14 at 21:51

If you know the UUID of the existing entity, you might be able to do something like:

/summon Sheep ~ ~ ~ {Riding:{id:"Sheep",UUID:<entity-uuid>}}

However, I don't know how to get the UUID of a mob, nor do I know if this command will use the existing entity or duplicate it. Summoning mobs with a specific UUID could be weird.
