Isn't a stallion a type of horse?

A stallion is a male horse that hasn't been castrated. Which is also what an "armăsar" is. From what I've noticed, both in English and Romanian, in casual speech, people tend to use it as "a beautiful horse".

So it seems odd to contrast stallion and horse here - ok, it's really just a vocab test, but contrasting the two tends to suggest that second word can't mean horse.
