Lumps on the chest?

I have been noticing a few small lumps under the skin on Janie's chest when I was grooming her. Are they normal or serious? There real small, you can't see them but you can feel them.

They're probably hives. Have you used any new products on her lately? Fly sprays, shampoos, etc.

Nope. I haven't given her a bath since it's winter and I haven't used any other products. It might be hives I wonder if it's a plant she's getting into?

That may possibly be it. There's one horse at the barn I ride at that almost always has hives. He gets them from all the bug bites. But he since there aren't really that many bugs out in the winter, I'm not really sure what could be causing them now.

Do they seem to be bothering her?

I wouldn't be too concerned then.
The gelding at my barn just gets really itchy from his hives, but as soon as we found out what was causing them, they started going down.. of course as soon as it was time for something else he was allergic to to come out..

So long story short, your girl is probably just allergic to something, so no need to worry unless they ever get much bigger and pus-filled and yucky.. yeah, you get the point. But I highly doubt they will.
