We keep a new one separated by a fence for 3-5 days and then put the boss mare in with the new one for a few hours each of the next couple days to get the initial kicking and fussing out of the way. Once that is settled, I turn the new one out with the rest. There will still be some kicking with the others, but not as much. Typically everything is settled within 3 weeks.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
