Depends on the horse. With overly excitable, bossy or instigating geldings I've found it best to take them away from the girls and stick them in together - then they can muck around as much as they like without it becoming serious, like it becomes with mares. However, I've had geldings like my current one who get bullied something wicked by other geldings, but with mares, they ignore him as he;s obviously bottom of the pecking order, and therefore he doesn't get hurt. Mares or geldings on their own generally tend to sort themselves out better, but occasionally you do have to mix them up and that's when you have to really see who gets on with who.
