Pictured: Gold Brose
When a young stallion dies, someone usually says “well, he’s bound to be good now”. Is there any truth in this, or is it just something polite to say when someone has lost a beloved stallion in order to offset their grief just a little bit. There are enough examples to make it seem like it might just be a thing. A quick hunt around the internet found several forum topics dedicated to the topic and some of the names that popped up included: El Qahira, Dr Grace, Adraan, Blues Traveller, Alannon, Lion Hunter, Iglesia, Shot of Thunder, and Gold Brose.
