I just recently bought this 7 year old mare. Vet checked and 100% sound. She was living on 300 acres as happy as could be. She is pretty fat and out of shape!
Well a week after, this bump showed up. She has been living in a stall with a huge run and she has been out in the pasture with the other horses.
It is on both sides under her belly. I cannot find a puncture wound. In between her front legs is like 2 pockets of fluid. When you poke it, the indention stays there for a minute and then goes away. Im starting to think it might be a hematoma like maybe she got kicked. But why is it swollen on both sides? I called the vet and she said she would come look at it next week. I have been putting DMSO and cold hosing it twice a day. Anyone have any ideas on what else it might be or what I could be doing to speed up the recovery?
Heres a video of it..
