Can you leave your horse outside? Unless there is a very specific reason for him to be stalked at night, he can likely manage just fine in the pasture. Chewing problem cured. =] Haha. My horse will chew in the stall if she is bored but for the most part, she's bored because she's in a stalk and can't wander and graze.
As far as the herd bound problem, I think you are doing the right thing by keeping them in separate pastures. You can also try tying the mini up somewhere. Take your horse to that area, in sight of the mini, and lunge him hard. Then take him out of sight of the mini to rest. The idea is that he learns he has to work harder around the mini. This should also be a safe way for you to deal with the problem, since you say working him with the mini doesn't get him to act up. Good luck!
