Horse meet and greet help

Our 39 yo blind pony (mare) Honey seemed lonely. She is exremely well mannered and calm. I spoke with the woman we rescued her from and she said she loved the boys. I found a 20 yo gelding mini pony Christopher with wonderful manners and the rescue brought him up yesterday.
When she gets close to him he will back up and kick her. When they meet nose to nose he screams, nips and twirls around and kicks the heck out of her.

This morning I noticed he has started to herds her; he will walk along side until he gets to her head then walks towards her, she will turn away but if she doesn't move fast enough he moves in nips and kicks. Sometimes he herds her right into the fence.

She is part Appy so is twice his size but he has taken to pushing her around. She is totally blind and sometimes doesn't see him.

My one and only concern was that I ended up with something that would "beat" her up, well I think we may have that situation. She already can't live without him, when she can't smelll him close she goes searching for him and geeze if she doesn't see him and gets to close he kicks her.

Now what, my husband says it's only been 1 day to let it go 1 week. Will he calm down? Do you think he will hurt her, when he kicks she knows enough to pick her head up but sometimes he gets her right in the legs? The person that brought him up said she will be able to hand it and things should calm down.

Can anyone give me advice as to what I should do? Does anyone know why Honey would be so attached so soon?

Thanks for any advice
Lee Ann
