Amen, Jim!  And if the stallion is still in a "learning curve" then make him wait outside the crowd until the others are done.

I've always said there are only two reasons why you should even know there is a stallion at a ride:  1)  Someone told you he was a stallion, or 2)  You noticed the testicles.  Any other reason why you are aware that there is a stalion around is socially unacceptable.
