the vet said "Oh yay, worried horse owner I can make a big bill" Just kidding. I really like our vet. Did the X-rays to make sure no small fractures, luckily none. They also showed that it was a recent injury because it was still fuzzy. He said our horse is slightly pigeon toed and splay footed to the inside which may have contributed to this injury. Said the shoeing job was good, no fault there. Injected the bumps with steroids to keep the inflammation from getting worse and said corral rest for 6 weeks,DMSO 2 times a day, and he will be completely cured. Actually the injury causes the bone to become more dense and he may be stronger there than before, but will always have unsightly bumps, although they should get smaller. My daughter was signed up for this awesome team sorting clinic with our horse and now can't go. At least he will be fine though. I do get frustrated with how much time and money is spent with non riding related horse things, such as lameness. Today being my only day off in 6 days and spent it at the vet. I am coming to realize that comes with the territory of "horse ownership" though. Let me know if anyone has any questions and thanks for your help.
