Mare and Gelding trouble

My mare has started to ruin my gelding he used to come up to me fine and the mare wouldn't. When they got attached the mare will run off and the gelding goes too he used to just walk right up to me. What happens?

It is called herd relationships and hierarchy, not ruining. Your mare is obviously more of a leader to your gelding than you are.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

The mare bewitched him and he's under her spell. Reason why I am not a fan of mixing sexes, "Mares make Geldings do stupids things".
