Every horse is different, whether before gelding or how they behave after the fact.
How old is the Mini? Has he always been aggressive? Did he live in a herd or by himself, before? Has he been a stallion who was bred many times?
Some of the above will make a difference. Certainly keep him separated, since it might take several weeks before he calms down and is unable to successfully impregnate a mare. Remember too, he might never become a truly calm gelding. Some geldings remain studdy, all their lives and will separate or herd females and keep other geldings away from their chosen ones. Minis might be small, but can certainly be just as aggressive and dangerous, as full size horses.
You might have to introduce him to each horse separately. This, within fences where they can be close, but not within the same boundaries. Make sure you have Mini proof fencing, so the little one cannot get through or climb over. He seems like a very determined little fellow.
