Is this when you are riding or just out in the paddock?

Riding.. if paddock is pasture he is only with two sheep not any other horses

I would say keep doing it, keep calm, basically desensitize him until he no longer cares

This one often requires a lot of work and you'll need some help. This is a very natural reaction...after all, if the other horses in a herd start to run, there must be something to run away from. To start, get some other riders to slowly approach you while you keep your horse steady and calm, and then gradually increase the speed.
Be aware, though, that running up on another horse is generally considered to be very inconsiderate for exactly this reason (at least on the trail).
