Do you have somewhere you can turn them out so they are across the fence from eachother at first? We always isolate the new horse for a few weeks, letting them smell eachother occasionally, then put them in adjacent paddocks so they can socialize at will but still the fence is there, then we turn them out together but don't leave them unattended together for a few days. Then when they are totally used to eachother we let them be, but when we feed them in the pasture (when the weather is nice) we space the feed piles far apart and put an extra out to avoid squabbling over hay and make sure every horse gets some.

He knows when you're happy; He knows when you're comfortable; He knows when you're confident; And he always knows when you have carrots.
