In my opinion, if Henry is 25, he won't "outgrow" his bullying. Some horses are just bullies and there really isn't much that can be done. He probably picks on this horse so much because he doesn't stick up for himself, like someone else said. It sounds like these two horses are the very top and very bottom of the pecking order. You say they get along most of the time, but my guess is that Henry is so dominant that the other horse just respects boundaries and tries to stay out of his way. Plus, the constant nicks and cuts all over the Arab show that they AREN'T getting along. I agree with separating them. Henry needs someone who will stand up to him more, and the other horse needs someone less dominant.
