Node on Divo's pastern?

Divo has rather hairy pasterns, he's not super feathered, but the hair is pretty thick nonetheless.

I was messing with his feet today and noticed a node in his 'feathers'. It was hard and circular, attached to the leg. It felt rather like very hard skin, didn't seem to bother him one bit. I found it on both front legs, but I didn't check the backs. I would guess one was about a quarter inch in length, the other just a smidge longer.

Any ideas as to what this is? Never seem anything like it on my less-hairy horses.

I don't know what they are but my new mare has them. They don't bug her either.

I can't remember the technical name for them, but they are totally harmless. Its like a chestnut. Some horses have barely noticeable or none and others have some that grow out and need to be trimmed or snapped off like chestnuts.
