My husband and I looked a horse today for him. This horse is a 15 year old Arabian gelding, he was abandoned at a boarding facility. He's a very sweet boy, but has this tumor under his eye. The previous owner had it removed at one point by a vet, but it came back after a couple years. Other than that, we have no other information on it. We took this picture, they had put some swat on it to keep the flies away from it, and it was draining a little from the corner of that eye.
Has anyone seen anything like this? My husband is just looking for a horse to learn on, trail ride and maybe do some low key team penning, so he's not looking to show him. If this is cosmetic, we can live with it. If it's more serious, we may not be willing or experienced enough to handle it. We plan to have a vet look at him regardless, but that can't happen until Monday since it's not serious. Just looking to see if anyone has seen anything like this before or have any information on it.
