Thanks, Littrella! The vet does not to want to biopsy it, and risk making it "angry", and there are major arteries and veins there, plus no loose skin to stitch, so I am going to try the Xxterra, and I will have to try to keep it wrapped, so it does not "eat" any live parts there around his tail, ahem...

The fun parts of horse ownership.

So the vet is coming this morning to remove and test it.

He has been telling me something was wrong, and I have TRIED to listen...he may be a bobtail Arabian after this, lol.

Ouch! Do you think it was just an abscess? Was it better after it popped open?

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

No, the size of the lump did not change, and right now it had the appearance of a sarcoid, buuuut, while trying to think positive, I think it is squamous cell. His dam had it when he was born.

Good luck with your horse. Hope it turns out to be nothing serious - whatever it is.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Thanks, y'all! I am also treating one of the fillies for a corneal ulcer, and trying to get things ready for our friends from Texas stopping on their way to the National Drive, and us to GO to the ND, honestly, I am too paralyzed to do anything. I turned him out. If the Xxterra doesn't work when I get back, I have to put him down, but I figured it was better to wait, than start and then stop for a week.

Here is a picture from yesterday of Gavotte. I am taking her single to the ND. She went last year, I think.

ETA: the picture is not sideways!! That is really how things look here in KY!!
