I've seen bug bites that look like that. There was no warmth and no itching.

hmmm it is strange... you said it was soft didn't you? Do you think it's fluid filled - if so its unlikely to be cancer. Tumours are usually relatively hard.

it does not feel like there is fluid in it, it is kinda firm when you first touch it and it softens up after I massage it.kinda hard to explain

that looks like an endema to me -- where fluid has gathered at the bottom...is he out in the pasture or up in a stall?

You said he's in with another horse? Perhaps he's been kicked and it's a heomotoma (sp?) basically a big bruise.

Let us know how he goes with the vet

the vet will be out here on the 20th.
kickshaw; what is endema? I never heard of it. Pharoah is out on pasture 24/7 only time he is in a stall is at feedings, just long enough to eat.

Frog: yes he is in with one other horse, and it is possible he got kicked.
whatever it is seems like it is getting smaller and does not bother him at all, he was out the morning running,rearing, kicking all over the place, I guess he likes the cool air.
