Belly Button?

Ok, this is kind of silly, but do horse's have belly buttons?

It was a very sunny day today and I was grooming my boy and noticed what looked like a belly button. It's just in front of his sheath area and it kind of looks like scrunched up scar tissue. It's a little bit of an outie too. A little bit further forward, all his belly hair cowlicks into one central spot...or is his belly button under there?

Well ofcourse horses have belly buttons cause they have imbilical (spelling) cord when they were inside their mummy. And when you feel it, it is a sort of a lump. Hehe so cool

Delregans Way has it right :) Horses are sustained inside their dams just like we are - with umbillical cords... that gets severed when they're born, and it shrivels up to make a lump on their bellies - probably right in front of your horse's sheath, like you mentioned :)

I guess I knew that horses would have belly buttons. It just kind of shocked me to have it stare me down while I was grooming. I never noticed it before. I don't like outies. :P

When a foal is born, does the umbilical cord break naturally or is it cut like a human?

It usually breaks naturally unless there is a concern. We had to cut out of our foals because the mare was to weak to take care of anything that was going on.
