They are caused for different reasons; after Justin had colic surgery, he had one on his belly until he was able to be turned out and move around a bit, which is why I asked if he was in or out

Is your horse carrying a lot of weight? My horse had a lump like that either side of his belly when I got him, and they were fatty deposits that disappeared once he started to get into shape.

I was so scared they were a tumour or something! Turns out my horse was just a fatty :]

Wild_spot; I wouldnt say he is fat, about 800lbs. 14.3hh, you can not see his ribs and he is rounded like arabians as I understand it is suppose to look like, he is in shape, rode about 3 days a week.So I will see what the vet says when they come out next Thurs.

Happy to say, the bump is gone, must have been a bug bite or a kick from Koda, my paint horse
