Give him a month to get all the hormones out and to lose any potency and then the herd will educate him to his place. I gelded a 7 year old stallion a couple of years ago, and while he remained in charge and kept order in the herd, withing a couple of months he was absolutely not interested in the mares and in 6 months you'd have sworn he'd been gelded as a baby. Since your horse has never been in charge, he'll not likely challenge anyone anyhow and will just become part of the social scene.

It actually takes about 6 weeks for all the semen and testosterone to disappear.

Ok. I'll definitely keep him seperated from them for at least two months after he's gelded. I can put my gelding in the pasture with him until it's time to put him back in with the whole herd.

I purchased an arab that was gelded at 10 years of age.
He looked and acted like a stallion for the next 21 years.
He did not show any interest in the mares but was always very protective of the herd.
He was very dominate and could not be placed in a herd with certain other horses. He would however adopt young horses and a donkey that he protected from all other horses. Shalom
