Leaking belly button??

An overweight pony at the barn, overnight came up with bloodish fluid dripping like an icicle seems like at his belly button. Its swollen but he seems to be acting normal. I tried looking up on the internet an answer to what it might be , but could not find anything. The owner calls the vet out over anything so she's calling the vet in the morning , but if anyone has an answer to what this might be and how serious it is it would be greatly appreciated.

That sounds like it could be pigeon fever. Is it a sore of sorts?

Sore of sorts?? Like was the swellening sore? I didn't touch it but his owner feeds in the morning and I believe they said they wiped it with a paper towel and said it was (forgive my spelling ) senchnous fluid.

Yeah like a welt or a hole or something that shouldn't be there. A sore, a bump, etc.

That's exactly what she believes it is , a hernia. She thinks since he's so fat its putting all that pressure there, yes he's a gelding . And yes it look like a bump or swellewing under his belly button

Good that she is having the vet out :) Any and all scenarios need to be taken care of sooner than later
