Gigantic Bump On new rescue!

I got sienna not too long ago from and idiot couple that thought she was in great condition along with another mare. Neither of them had their feet done in god knows how long.. can't walk properly becuase of it. Sienna has this bump ( already called the vet to come out ) anyone have any idea of what I should be expecting from this... It is very soft and you can push it back in so im saying either fatty hernia or ubilical hernia that was never taken care of. She is 3 yrs old. I attached photos of their feet also

Yikes. Looks like a hernia.... surgery is likely if that's the case

Oh my. I can't believe they treated her like that! She's a very pretty girl... but in definite need of muscle, weight and trimming. I would get the vet out right away to see that bump. It will probably need surgical removal. Good luck with her!

I'd guess hernia. Good luck with her!

Herina. Probably could of been clamped when she was a foal but will be more expensive to repair now.

Looks & sounds like a Hernia.
While she is in rough shape, I am sorry to say she isnt the worse

Thank you and yes compared to the other rescues I have had.. she is one of the better looking ones weight wise... I have yet to have people completely neglect their hoofs like this poor girl had. There is NO heel once so ever just a insaine amount of toe... have already have farrier out and did them once but you have to do it gradual so they don't look perfect yet but are looking better Neither of them have any training once so ever! One tore the back of my lean to down when I attempted to tie her.. and they guy told me they were started undersaddle!! Haha... this guy had barb wire haning down in the barn that the horses had to climb underneath to get into their barn that had 10 ft of horse manure it... oh yeah and the stallion runs with the mares all year long becuase he said that "mares don't come into heat in the winter" hmm..sure okay if you say so... I was petting his stallion and he goes and that's my other mare... im like umm this is your stallion... he said oh yeah oops haha..
