Bella's 'crazy' Bump

When I bought Arabella, I was told that the bump on her head was from when she was a foal and she somehow got a stick lodged into her head..Seemed fishy to me, but I bought her anyways. The vet told me they were full of it and that her bump is genetic. Has anyone seen this on other horses before or have any pictures? Is there a specific name for this kind of conformational defect and how big of a deal is it? Right now we just call it her 'crazy' bump and blame the fact that she's physco on the bump ;)

I've never seen a genetically inherited bump like that... Interesting! Anyway, Alli has bumps on her nose from having a tight halter when she was young :'( Its never bothered me, justs adds to her quirks! If you want to show, idk if judges will be bothered or not... But for showjumping and eventing, or barrels, roping or whatever dicipline you want to show in it shouldnt be a problem

Your horse is very pretty btw

I don't have any input on the bump other than it definitely looks like something she was born with and not a "stick incident", but I did want to say she sure is a pretty girl and has the sweetest face. Give her a hug for me. :)

Thank you guys :) I love her bump and all. Just makes her more unique I guess. I've shown her in halter a few times and she placed better than I thought..I'm thinking it might be one of those things that if the judge is deciding between two horses, Bella would be placed lower of the two because of the bump.

Looks rather like the bump some people have on their nose. She really does have a sweet face!

She has a lot of extra brains, so the bump is extra storage spot?

I saw something on a horse a long time ago that was at my barn, he had broken his nose and he had a bump like that , just lower.

I know a horse that got kicked in the face right on the nose and ended up with a huge bump like that.
