By arena do you mean the sheepyard? lol... Did you hose him off?

He is very fat. but the whole time I ahve had him he has always been fat. he's actually a pretty inherently fit horse by nature, and being an Arab, he has a ton of stamina. So doing a lot fo work with him before camp is good, but he will cope, I promise you :]

Ah ok, the road cones lol. That's good.

If he is super sweaty and it's not super cold, then it's better to hose him off as brushing won't get it all out no matter how long you brush for :] Even if you just hose his girth area so he doesn't get any gall.

lol, I think fat is his natural state... A few years ago I tok him in the Gundaroo bush races, trained like crazy, laps and laps of paddocks at the lope with periods of gallop, and he was still fat!
