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

So good news, the vet didn't come out, but the owner talked to her on the phone. She said its not pigeon fever there hasn't been any cases near here, and probably not a hernia since it mostly happens in foals. She said its probably where a bug bit him and it created an abbcess and its opened up. So just clean with betadine and put ichamole (spelling) a drawing salve on it.

The owner wanted the vet to come out and since the vet didn't come out and talked to her on the phone. She is sending a culture because she's not sure, but the vet didn't feel it needed to come out

Get a second opinion. The vet said that hernias mostly happen in foals, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be.
