Put a fence inbetween them for a few days, then try introducing.
Hate to be a downer, but when my horse was introduced to a herd at a former barn, the 3rd in command did not get along with him. There were 5 horses in the herd. Mine was on the bottom (he's a very non-dominant horse). He got along great with alpha (we put them in together and they immediately started mutually grooming one another), got along fine with everyone else, but that 3rd in command gelding HATED him. We tried to let them work it out on 3 occasions with no good results. My horse ended up with bite marks on his butt every time. This horse would charge him, my horse would submit and run away, then stop and just stand. The other gelding would make another round and charge him again. He didn't give up until my horse went through the fence. It never changed up until I took my horse out of the pasture.
So they may never get along. It just happens sometimes.
