Question "Help" Gelding issues

I have had one of my geldings for over a year and he has been with 3 mares and he thinks they are his little harem. (He's arab/quarter). I just brought a new gelding home that is older and he's in the pasture next to him. My Arab/Quarter does not like him near the fence and keeps charging the fence after him. I need to be able to put these boys together. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get these to like each other. I did put one of the girls in with the new gelding this morning. I don't have the space to keep everyone separated.

Leave them as they are for now, let everybody get used to each other.

You may try putting a mare in with the new gelding, kind of like breaking up his harem a bit at a time. A lot depends on the temperament of your first gelding. I have seen some eventually allow the new guy into the pecking order and I have personally had one that was way aggressive when we tried to add a new guy in with his girls. He would pin them in a corner and whip the crap out of them. We sold him to someone who had a very large area to run with a larger herd of horses. That helped immensely.

Good luck!
