My 7 year old gelding has a odd swelling on his shoulder.
I was out riding one day, then the next day I came out and he has a huge swelled up spot on his shoulder, towards the front/top of it.
It is about the size of a large dinner plate, its rock hard, no heat in it at all and my gelding could care less if I push on it or poke at it.
When I first saw it I thought it was a kick but there is no mark or any discolored skin or anything and it doesnt hurt him. The first 3 days I cold soaked it 2x daily for 15 mins at a time and saw a tiny bit of improvement but that was it so I stopped since the swelling itself wasnt hot/warm
It has been 5 days and there has been little improvement. I have a call into my vet to see what he says but I wanted to see what you guys thought.
