Sounds like you have a dominant horse but you say she has never made contact. If she had wanted to, she probably would have by now.
My daughter's young little horse gets chased off, sometimes nipped at or kicked at during feeding time because he tried to break pecking order and "share" before he gets invited to do so. It is just how horses are sometimes.
If it were my horse I would keep an eye on it, but not interfere at this point.
If you notice the donkey is loosing weight, you may need have separate hay piles.
