Awww Lacy, poor old woman just wants a man in her life... Isn't Atticus enough for her? LOL. Love love love that mare and her crazy quirks! I might end up camped out in your backyard someday Wallaby...beware.
@ OP, we have a mixed herd currently. I have found that geldings (or sometimes mares) do sometimes tends to be clingy to their 'girlfriends' but as the others said, you can fix that with training if it happens. This happens in single-gender herds too though, so its not necessarily JUST because its a mare and gelding.
The only issue I ever have with mixed herds is if the gelding things he's a stallion and likes to mount the mare or herd her with biting. Both of those can lead to infection or marks.

be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
