Lump on neck

Previous trauma in the past may have caused a lump which when healed can end up with an indent.

My gelding has a dent on his neck that is very obvious. It is (rough estimate) 3 inches long and 1 inch wide. Yours could be a birth defect like his is. If it is, it wont bother him.

Is it a QH?

it could be what is called a Prophets thumb. indentation in the muscle . genetic thing. Now each breed calls it something different.

My horse has one the size of a thumb print but it was from trauma, never heard of a Prophets Thumb, interesting. Is it an old tale related to Arabs?
