    Since its on a white patch I would be a little concerned. Is it just thicker hair or is the skin itself thickening? I would have the vet take a look at it when he is there.

    Its hair...if that helps....

    So its not a melanoma. That's usually the skin and its blackish
    That was my concern. I would still ask the vet

    Yeah we know its not melanoma because we have another 19yo grey Tb who has malenomas.. Its not really a bump either its just hard...I will have the vet look at it but it is so weird!!!

    Do horses have birthmarks?? This is confusing me soooo much I can't wait for the vet to tell me what it is!!!!!! Ha ha ha

    Could she have gotten sap or something sticky on it??

    I've never seen that. Of course it would help to see her in person. I'd definitely get the vet out to check it, espically if it gets bigger.
