    I am not sure . He said something about his vet was coming out in a few days or something and that he would have him look at it. The bump would be right in the path of him swallowing , that is why I referenced the addam apple .

    I would call the vet who will be coming and describe the situation, so that when he comes, he will be prepared. Vets are not big fans of having additional patients thrown at them last minute. That lump would be in front of or around the trachea, or windpipe. The esophagus is a little deeper in the neck.

    He had mentioned calling him today to ask him about it

    A goiter may also be a possibility; caused by insufficient iodine intake. One of my mares has one. I always keep an iodized salt block outside 24/7 and a chunk of salt in her feed bin; that way she is bound to take in a little bit every day and it makes the goiter stays small and hardly noticeable.

    One of my horses started to develop a goiter the first year I owned him, it would come & go and yes it was the same spot as you described. Both horses had access to iodized salt block. After doing a bit of research, I learned most horses don't lick enough salt for their needs so I added a mineral salt supplement to the their feed. I haven't seen that lump for several years since I started doing that.
