Unhappy Former stallion doesn't like other males.

I have recently purchased a horse, and the same people that owned her own her sire that they have offered to just give to us. He is no longer a stallion, but he is the sweetest horse I have ever met! He loves people and attention and I could not see him hurting a fly. He is an "over grown hippo" as we call him because he is so fat! I have ridden him and even though he is pretty green, he is not very difficult to ride. He's an all around lazy sweet heart. He is about 7 now, and apparently before and for a while after the owners got him cut, he was quite a handful. Once (so I was told) he busted through the barbed wire fence in his pasture, through a hot wire fence in another pasture, and they found him fighting with one of their other geldings (the only other male horse on the property). He had him pinned down on the ground trying to rip the other horses' throat out. He has only done this to that one other horse that one time, but everybody is too scared to find out what would happen if he came in contact with another male. I think he would be the absolute perfect 4-h horse for my younger sister because he is so sweet and well tempered (now). But he has not been around any other males since that incident, and of course at 4-h shows he will have to be. I'm in quite a pickle because he is so sweet and gentle now, but who knows what could happen if he had to be around another male? Is it worth just taking him and hoping that there is a chance that since now he is so sweet he could have changed, or is it not even worth chancing?

Green Broke
I would get some experienced adults and have them handle him and bring him around other horses at home and see how he acts. I would not turn them out together but see how he is being handled around other horses male and female
