 up Mt. Diablo.  He started out a bit slowly, needing urging to move
 out.  At one point he started stomping a hind foot, lashing at his
 belly with his tail.  I dismounted, but couldn't see a fly.  I list-
 ened, and his gut sounded normal.  Another horse came along, and he
 happily moved out.  >>

What was the ambient temperature? This sounds like high body temp to me. It 
takes some conditioning just to get a horse capable of dissipating 
heat--especially that generated while climbing hills.
