Rode my older mare last night (nothing strenuous, just walking and a few seconds of slow trot, we are just starting her annual spring rehab); when I got off and groomed her more thoroughly I noticed this:
From underneath in the front:
It doesn't appear to be causing her any discomfort, she let me touch it without a problem. She isn't walking or moving weirdly because of it; it feels medium-firm but not hard and I honestly can't tell what it is. Wrong shape/ sensation to be a tumor and weird place for a hernia. I thought I'd ask if anyone on here had any ideas or has seen this before I call the vet.
This is the first time I've noticed this and I usually give her a really good once over twice a week; however my boyfriend and I have been moving the past couple weeks and I've only been out to really give them their supplements and say hi; so it could have been there longer.
Thanks in advance :)
