  1. Stallion(noun)

    a male horse not castrated; a male horse kept for breeding

    Etymology: [OE. stalon, OF. estalon, F. talon, fr. OHG. stal a stable. See Stall, n.]


  1. Stallion

    A stallion is a male horse that has not been gelded. Stallions follow the conformation and phenotype of their breed, but within that standard, the presence of hormones such as testosterone may give stallions a thicker, "cresty" neck, as well as a somewhat more muscular physique as compared to female horses, known as mares, and castrated males, called geldings. Temperament varies widely based on genetics, and training, but because of their instincts as herd animals, they may be prone to aggressive behavior, particularly toward other stallions, and thus require careful management by knowledgeable handlers. However, with proper training and management, stallions are effective equine athletes at the highest levels of many disciplines, including horse racing, horse shows, and international Olympic competition. The term "stallion" dates from the era of Henry VII, who passed a number of laws relating to the breeding and export of horses in an attempt to improve the British stock, under which it was forbidden to allow uncastrated male horses to be turned out in fields or on the commons; they had to be "kept within bounds and tied in stalls." "Stallion" is also used to refer to males of other equids, including zebras and donkeys.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Stallion

    stal′yun, n. an uncastrated male horse, esp. one kept for breeding. [O. Fr. estalon (Fr. étalon)—Late L. equus ad stallum, a horse at stall.]

  1. Lonita Baker:

    It's unfortunate that Daniel Cameron has referred to seeking justice for victims of police brutality as the' Crump Playbook.' Daniel Cameron can't respond to the real criticism that Daniel Cameron circumvented the grand jury process but yet Daniel Cameron makes time to respond to Megan Thee Stallion's Saturday Night Live performance, i'd much rather be fighting for justice for Breonna Taylor by demanding a prosecutor who will uphold Kentucky laws for all citizens rather than one who seeks to only protect Breonna Taylor own political agenda. Daniel Cameron playbook is the real issue that needs to be discussed.

  2. Londoner Haye:

    In the end, what 20,000 fans inside London's O2 Arena witnessed was me giving 100 percent effort but performing way below world level, for my fans, it must have been like going to support their favorite thoroughbred racehorse at the Grand National, only to see their stallion stumble out the gates like a sedated mule at the Donkey Derby.
