I would just like to add another reason why a "regular" horse owner would opt for not a stallion...

Here in Australia alot of the registries for different breeds and associations of horses have rather strict standards. A backyard breeder/owner usually won't come close to the standards. The horse has to be in peak physical condition. That usually means looking after the horse as a full time career. ie the horse needs to be ridden for the required disciplines at a very high level, it needs to be feed adequately for the type of exercise the horse should be receiving, it needs to be housed/paddocked in stallion proof location. it is a lot of work. Most horse owners I know usually have a full time job outside of horses, and everyone I know who owns a stallion does so with prestige and a good reputation, hence I only ever see amazing stallions with impeccable manners and always under control. My ponies get cared for by the best of my ability but there is no way I could adequately own a stallion for breeding purposes, therefor no reason to own a stallion.
Just my two cents in the matter of why I would not desire a stallion at the present moment.
