Growth on mare

This is my first time having a pregnant mare so I need some help here. Yesterday when I went out side there was a large lump right beneath her belly and another smaller one nearer her back. But both were in the belly area. I am assuming that this isn't good.

So what should I do? I think maybe it is liquid filled. Should I leave it? Pop it? What?

I would call up your vet and tell them about it. If they think it's something I'm sure they'll come out. If it is part of your mare being pregnant, then it's fine :)

Call the vet, it may be nothing, just a fatty deposit or something like that. Sandie had the same thing you were describing and just had to have it removed a couple days ago and sent away for analysis. The vet didn't like the look and feel of it I I'll let you know what Sandie's was in a week or so when the tests come back. The vet will be able to give you a better idea what it is though.

Call the vet because you need to find out what they are AND need the vet to treat it if it's treatable, removable etc etc.

Good Luck

And do you have a picture of it? I would like to see it and hear what the vet would have to say about it.
