Help? Lumpy Swelling on Rexy's Chin

Hoping you guys might be able to give me some ideas on what this swelling may be. It starts inside his lower lip and all under his chin, it does go up under his jaw but is nowhere near as bad there. At about 5pm today it was soft and lumpy. Just came back from putting winter rugs (storms a brewing) and it's now a littler firmer and he doesn't like me touching it anymore.

If it is still there when I go out first thing tomorrow I will be calling the vet, but just wanted to see if you had any ideas as to what it could be?

I did think that, but then the abcesses I have seen have all swollen in one spot, not lumpy like this. Could be though. Hope not

Yea I've never seen them lumpy either, but you never know. I hope not too :( I hope you get this figured out, I'm not sure I could offer any other decent answers right now, I just woke up and I'm still 'googly eyed' lol.

Haha googly eyed. I think between stressing about my baby boy and the storm we're about to cop I won't be sleeping tonight

I would venture to guess he was bitten by something when he was grazing.

I was wondering about that too, maybe an allergic reaction to a bee sting or something? Just hope if it is a bite/sting it's nothing serious, he was eating without a worry and his flanks weren't sunken so I assume he had been drinking ok too. Its times like these I really wish my horses could stay in my backyard

You thinking its a vet Job?

If its not gone when I head out tomorrow I'm definitely calling the vet. Better safe than sorry.

How old is he? These could be "three year old bumps" that appear when the teeth start coming in. If he is much older than that, I'd be more concerned about abscesses.
