Until he is over his little tricks, I'd highly suggest keeping him by himself. The other horses might not kill him, but could. Or he could do some damage to them. Then, if he's with the other horses, he would most likely attach and get very buddy sour. That's another issue you don't want to deal with. I'd either start working his tail off by yourself, now, or get him to a trainer to do it. Fix it now, the longer it goes on the worse it can become. Most of these horses require training to fix, very few get fixed with time only. He'll most likely turn out just fine, just needs some mannering.
I word of caution if you decide to do this yourself, DO NOT peck on him when you correct him. Do it once, very hard, and let it go, Don't stay after him. And do it within 3 seconds of the occurrence, any longer and he will not know why you are after him, and you'll make it worse.
