So glad it isn't anything needing surgery! My mare was kicked in the hock, before I got her, and it caused a huge lump on her hock. It didn't go away in the 9 years I had her, but it became stiff at the age of 24. Before that, it never caused even the slightest issue. But vet said it was only because it was on a joint and she was already getting arthritic, otherwise it wouldn't have ever been a problem.

Best of luck with you and your horse :)

Last November my then 11 yo mare suffered a puncture wound under the right eye, fracturing the bone.....you could have poked a finger into the frontal sinus cavity. This healed without any problems (never figured out how she did it), but she developed a huge lump between her eyes that grew for several months. She was seen by two vets and had X-rays taken by both. The second vet consulted the veterinary dept at the University of TN. While hard and "bony" feeling, it did not show up on X-rays & ended up being about the size of a baseball cut in half. My husband started calling her a "unicorn". General consensus was that the original injury caused an "exuberant growth of tissue" in response. As of today, her head is back to it's original rather inelegant shape....the lump went away and the only sign of the original injury is a small depression under her eye. Never bothered her at all, tho I can't say the same for me. Good luck!

Wow that's crazy!! I'm glad it finally went away. I really hope his does the same but if not ill be ok with it. I'm just so glad it wasn't anything more than that. We are going to keep monitoring it for the next couple of months and do X-rays often since my vet can do them at the house and they are very inexpensive. Thanks everyone for the well wishes!
