Pictures of the belly bump/lump/bulge on Citrus

Citrus is fine today- walking, eating, swishing flies..... here are the pictures that could more accurately be described as a bulge. It is not his belly button, but rather right in front of and to the right of it. Bowel sounds are active. It has not grown or shrunk since yesterday. Any ideas?

Thie first pic is probably the best.... the last pic, from far away, look for his regular bottom line and then you can see the bulge because it does not match the rest of his stomach.

Did you recently try a new fly spray? I switched to a very strong fly spray and after spraying it directly on my horse he got soft bumps on his sensitive tummy. I stopped using that spray and it went away in a day.

I don't have any pictures I'm not sure if it's quite the same as your horse but it was soft and puffy. It could be some kind of allergic reaction / bug bite too.

Well, I have to say, the last pic made me laugh. It looks like he doesn't have a head!

As for the bump, I would say a bugbite, allergic reaction to a spray, or maybe it's just how he is?

I knew a horse that got a lump like that not long after she was born. I don't think it ever went away, but it never hurt her any either...

Could be a bee sting?

Looks like an edema pocket, can you leave dent when pushed..if so it will go away...just extra fluid, but if comes back, I would have vet do some blood work, on her.

Edema spot, bug bite/sting, hives, kick mark....any of those or none of those.

That is true- he turned to bite at a fly at that exact second :)

No, it is non-pitting. It is semi hard and he does not flinch or react when I touch or push on it. I will see how he looks today.
