Breeds with bumps on face

Alright, My QH diesel is crossed with something that's unknown. I keep getting asked with what though. And its finally got me really curious.

He has this 'bump' on his face. I havnt seen any other type of horse with it. Its right under his eyes.

Is there a certain breed that has this, or is it say a birth defect?

My guess is its a birth defect. I know some breeds have a more rounded bridge on the front of the face but that looks more like a defect. As long as there are no physical limitations and it doesnt bother your horse and you love him I wouldn't worry about it.

I agree with could be some type of birth defect, as I've never seen it before.

It looks to me like it's a birth defect or an old injury where he would have hurt himself quite seriously. I have never heard of a breed of horse which has what your QH has. I assumed you were initially talking about a Roman head which yes, tends to be a breed thing.

It's a defect, no breed has that trait. Pretty horse though :)

Maybe she mixed with saddlebred or standardbred! I can kinda see it in theface, that's just me though!!!!!

What I find interesting is that he must have gone thru quite a severe injury to have bumps like that but there are no scars or obvious external signs of an injury which would tell me it was a birth defect??

If it was an injury, it's crazy he would have something like that and no one even knew anything about it.

I think he could be a litle Icelandic or Saddlebred :) check if he has Tölt hahah no , joke ;)
