beautiful Buckskin -what could this red boil on the right side be?

We just bought this beautiful quarter horse buck skin; he is about 8 years old and we noticed a red boil on his belly just infront of his right leg, we took him for a ride and he was limping pretty good on that back right leg. It has been about a week and a half now and the boil looks worse, the limping is worse and his thigh seems tender to touch. What could it be?mail.jpg

Looks like a possible sarcoid to me. You can read up on them: Horse Sarcoids the Types and Causes - Sarcoids are very common and treatment options are expanding constantly.

I would most certainly have a vet out ASAP to determine what is going on with your new boy.

I agree that it looks like a sarcoid. However, a sarcoid shouldn't cause the lameness issues. That sounds like a separate, more serious problem...

I appreciate the replies, I was thinking it could possibly be a sacroid too, but the pictures I have looked up seem to be more meaty, if that makes any sense? We have decided to take the horse to a vet tomorrow and have some x-rays done on his hoof too to see make sure he is not lame. He is a beautiful incredibly well broken horse it would be a **** shame to lose him.

That just looks nasty. Im hoping its nothing serious and can be fixed. My prayers are with you.

Looks very similar to a sarcoid a mare I knew had, was also in the same area. It would dry up/scab over and open up again on a regular basis, and was tender at times. If it's tender enough in the right spot then I could see it causing him to favour that leg but you would want to rule out anything else first. Good luck

Definately looks like a sarcoid to me, interested in what vet says and what treatment you use. I am dealing with them on Hunters face and the Xxterra seemed to eat his good skin too. There is a thread in here on it, search sarcoids.

Here is a link Is this a sarcoid?

That just looks painful and irritated. I hope you find out what it is SOON and it's treatable.
