Alpha Mare with Alpha Gelding?

Several horses I've looked at have been said to be "alpha mares in a mixed herd".

Now... one of the horses at the place where I'll be keeping my horse is a gelding... and he's most definitely an alpha. He's not mean, and wouldn't ever hurt anybody... but he has nipped the other two horses several times for getting a bit too close to his "lead position".

I was just wondering if any of you guys would have any experience with this. I was wondering if a gelding would act differently around a mare, etc.

Not that I'm going to be getting these horses... but I'm mainly just wondering... how would the two alphas react?
