How warm should it be so that Romeo can sweat?

I really want to get Romeo back into shape, and it has been in around the 40's here lately and I was just thinking; how warm should it be before Romeo can sweat and still be pretty comfortable in the pasture? Because I don't have a cooler or anything.

At first, I thought you wanted to make him warm enough so that he would sweat, and I was thinking, "Why does she want to make him sweat?.." Lol.

I'm not really sure. If he is that out of work, you shouldn't be riding him hard enough to turn him into a big sweat bomb anyway. Increase his workload gradually, and make sure he is cooled down and mostly dry before you put him away. Chances are he'll be okay, just try to make sure he doesn't sweat on really cold days. =]
