Lump on neck

So my horse has what is almost like a dent in his neck, he's had it since we bought him but he had long shaggy fur then and we did not notice it, he passed the vet check when we bought him so obviously not to major but I find it a bit odd

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.

That is funny you should ask that. Can I ask why you did if you don't mind? My guy is an AQHA.

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?
