It could be something as simple as a calcium build up. Get the vet out.
The only resean that I "jumped to strangles" is because of the recent vaccination.

I truly hope for you sake it isn't a dental infection, I just went thru this with my mare. She had a lump on her right jaw bone that started to drain, well I was almost sure it was Strangles, however I was very stumped on how because she had her vaccinations about 3 months prior to that. However it look no different than strangles...It was a dental infection and shot of general anesthetic and a huge bill cured it! ;) Sugery!

Um no, no dental infection. Its cleared up, did all on its own. I know what to look for and wasnt worried at all. Some things are better left alone to run there course while some need attention from a vet. I stated that.

Why am I thinking wolf tooth? Strangles would be bad, and I hate to say it paint gurl but are you sure your horses didn't have strangles also? Just because your horses natural immune system took care of it, doesn't mean you weren't miss diagnosing the situation. Anyways, if its a wolf tooth its a very noticable bump on the jaw behind the chin, but I thought strangles was much closer to the throat, not on the jaw, could be wrong though, not an expert. Also 6 is old for a wolf tooth, but I don't think it's unheard of.
