pregnant mares and older geldings, Ideally that will keep him in his place and teach him manners for the first year or two(or more). Many stallions are monsters with other horses because, starting very young, they were kept alone, and only allowed near others when showing(not allowed to interact) or breeding. You end up with an antisocial, testosterone filled, dominant misfit, who sees geldings as rivals and mares as only breeding objects.
Also, in regards to stalling, I know many people do this, but while it is hard on adult horses, it is awful for youngsters. They need constant movement to develop physically, strengthen bones and tendons and keep their digestive system healthy. They also need constant stimulation to develop mentally.
