Something's on my horse's face

Sorry I can't put pics of it on her face yet, I will asap though. They're centered on her muzzle, mostly by her left nostril, and they go up to her noseband when she has her rope halter on. They look like little dark lumps. The closest thing I can find on the net is warts... I will show you a picture off the net of warts. If it is warts, how do you get rid of them? And if they aren't, then what are they???

If it's warts, they'll go away on their own.

Okay, thank you. I'm also afraid we may have to move barns again because my horse is underweight because they hadn't started putting hay in the pastures yet, like last time I took her out she was afraid of everything but too hungry to really care. She's also a bit flinchy, which she's never been before..

Looks like warts.. They will go away.. I have seen them most common in young horses 3yrs. I had a 2 year old about 15 years ago get them from cows..They went away.

Okay, thank you. Funny, it says it happens in young horses and can be a herd problem when young horses are kept together, because she is almost 4, and her field as far as I know are all young horses around her age
