My Gelded horse still thinks he is "Romeo"

I have a 15 year old horse who was gelded 3 years ago. When I am mucking in his stall he winnies to the mares or when we are in the round pen he will be all studdly if a mare walks by. How do I keep his full attention or train him not to do that. Perhaps it is mother nature and do I ignore his acting out. I have just been a horse owner a little over a year and I am losssst in this horsey world!!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated

I"m sure more experienced people will chime in but my advice would be to get his attention, at least when you are riding. There isn't much you can do when he is in his stall. Make him change gait, direction or something so that he has to pay attention to you instead of the girls.

Mahalo for the good advice. I went out today and worked with him and what you said rang true! =D When I was mucking his stall this evening he started acting studly so I used a low heyyyy voice and gave him a stinkeye look and he looked rather surprized. By george i think I'm learning how to think like a horse!
