Geld him.  Sorry couldn't resist :))  I haven't seen a portable corral made 
that I would consider safe for a stallion, let alone a young one.  Double 
tied to the trailer is probably the safest way to go.  Most horses adapt 
really well to being tied, you leave the rope long enough so that they can 
put their head down to eat, lay down, etc., but can't get tangled up.  Plus, 
you have the added security of them being double tied.  Nothing worse than a 
loose stallion in camp (even worse than dogs, kids, etc.).  I've seen people 
with stallions use those orange traffic cones to mark off a bigger space 
around the trailer (so people don't park too close).  Don't forget a BIG 
yellow ribbon in his tail.  Good luck!
