Horse Behavior

We recently put to mares in with our gelded OTTB and gelded quarterhorse. The quarterhorse has since began chasing the OTTB away and has been kicking and biting him. Any suggestiions to solve situation?

Put the mares in a separate pasture.

One gelding has decided he is claiming ownership of the mares and will continue to show dominance (perhaps to point of injury to the OTTB), until the mares get put somewnere else:)

A reason why it is popular to have an only-geldings and an only-mares herd.
