It might be worth seeing what type of grass their on.... if its and old cattle station chances are its a grass with oxalates which could lead to the swelling.

I haven't had any dealing with the above mentioned problems as they are not common here. But if it gets worse and more facial bones begin to swell at least you will know what to do. :)

Here is a great link for you on strangles! It tells you on the bottom of the page how your horse can get strangles from the vaccine.

It is more likily for them to get strangles from the vaccine if it is give intermuscularly. I would ask you vet to give it to your horses orally from here on out.

Thanks to everyone! I will call the vet in the morning!

It is possible that it is a reaction to the Strangles vaccination, however it could just as easily any number of other infectious issues as those lymph nodes can swell with any type of infection.

I would recommend quarantining this horse, monitoring it's temperature at least every morning if not morning and night.

Sounds like strangles.... update?

Yeah, I was also going to say it might be strangles, personally I would have the vet out to check but I am a worrier bad time
Unless its just her grass glands swelled up a bit if the grass is coming through?

My gelding had this for quite some time, it popped on its own though and drained but was on the bone in the same area. It just kept getting bigger and it was hard but if you are worried about it, get a vet out and see if they can drain it. Everyone seems to jump to strangles right off the bat. It could be something as simple as a calcium build up. Get the vet out.

I am not sure if all states in the US give the "live" version of the vaccine, but I know that there is two different versions of that vaccine.
One is live the other is not...
It certainly sounds like strangles and I would get a call into the vet and get a temp on your horse to tell the vet before you call.
You just never know...
Do you have a picture?
Also just in case, is there any way to seperate this horse if it does have a temperature?
That's just what I would do given the cirrcumstances...
Hope it turns out to be nothing serious...
Maybe a dental infection as well.
Keep us posted
