ORIGIN OF WORD "STALLION" The origin of the word "stallion" is interesting. Mares and entire horses ran together on the common lands in England and created so much confusion that a law was passed ordering male horses to be "kept in bounds and tied in stalls," when the name stallion, or stalled one, was applied to the entire horse.
