Bump on knee???

My new mare has a puffy bump on her right front it doesn't seem to bother her and is cool to the touch but I have to wonder what it is? Should I be worried?

If it's not hot, don't hurt or the mare isn't lame you don't must be worried.

But if you very worried, call the vet.

get well soon.


(my stallion has bumped his hock, he has a puffy bump too.
The vet say to me it's not bad and it goes away in one until two weeks.)

Oh I hope this goes away but she's had it a whole week already and there's no improvement on it yet nor has it gotten any worse. I just don't know what it is or why it's there

Have your vet check it out :/ We had a gelding with arthritis on his knee from a cart fall accident and it showed up as a bump. I really hope it's not that..

If it's not hot, she's not lame, and it isn't painful to the touch I wouldn't be really worried about it. I'd call out the vet though, if it doesn't go down within another week, as anything with joints can get a little dicey and if it's bad the longer you wait the worse it could get. As a little note my mare just had a large swelling on her stifle that wasn't hot or painful. The vet determined that it was a hematoma and drained it. It would have gone down eventually, but this was faster. Good luck and a quick recovery to your mare!

I will just give the vet a call tomorrow morning and have him see what's up with it. Better safe than sorry! I hope it's nothing too bad.

It could just be a calcification. Do you have any pictures?

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.
