Unhappy Found something else mysterious...

So, I am still doing the dreaded daily alodine wash on Cinny for his fungus and he is getting so relaxed in there that I started checking out if I could get around his sheath (yes, this was thought of while reading the "udder" thread). Anyway, I discovered that he probably will let me clean him myself...yay.

BUT...I found something weird. Not IN his sheath but sort of on the outside in the crease between it and his leg on the skin is a hard nodule. It sort of feels like a giant hard pimple...about the size of a pea. When I mess with it he starts acting uncomfortable and picks up his hind leg in a protective way. If I stop and go back to cleaning the rest of the outer sheath he relaxes again, it's only when I touch the nodule.

Does anybody know what this could possibly be? Do I need to have a vet rush out or can it wait until his next vaccinations (this fall)? It's so dark in there I can't really get pictures of it, I myself can't even seen it, but I can feel it.

If you want to get pictures, try using the low light setting (sometimes called 'museum setting' or 'ISO' or something of that nature), or use the night time flash.

And for some reason, this HF is giving me crap lately and I can't send PMs, so YES, I did get your payment, and I sent out your stuff yesterday :) Sorry for making you anxious and stuff. :)

ETA: It could be a bug bite, or just a normal skin tag. I don't know if horses get them or not, lol, but could he just have been protesting messing with a sensitive part of his skin (that skin down there is pretty thin), or was it specifically on that spot?

it could be a bug bite, that would be my first guess :)

He was specifically protesting me touching that actual little bump. I was sort of gently rolling it between my fingers to figure out if it was just a big piece of yuck that would eventually come off, but it didn't. That's when he started acting agitated.

I would watch it.. But if you're really concerned about it NOW, then get a vet to do a once over. A consultation will at least rest your mind. :)

There's a paint at our barn with a similar pea-sized bump on her muzzle. It doesn't hurt her or anything, it's just.. kind of.. there. I could ask the owner about it if you'd like?

And thank you for understanding my anxiety, I also recently bought something on Ebay that I'm having major problems with....so I think it just sort of made me extra leery...whew feel so much better now.
