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 :]

No, no the umm arena near the foal paddock. Down the bottom of the tack shed hill thingie. No I didn't hose him off just spent 30min brushing it all of lol. But he was all nice & clean from sweat after wards. I made sure.

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.

Ok soz I didn't know anyway it started to as soon as I chucked him pack in the paddock. I'll to that next time I wasn't sure cause it was a bit chilly

I would leave hm as is cause he may need the fat at camp as long as he's fit enou to handle he work :)

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!
