Weanling
I don't even want to start guessing but if I did, I would say to call a vet ASAP.

Weanling
My guess is if this is new it is an infection which will require a vet call and possibly antibiotics.

I hate to say this, but it pretty much looks like our horses' necks did when they came down with dryland distemper (pigeon fever). Your vet can tell you for sure, one way or the other. Our bunch all recovered just fine, but were a mess for a while...

Yikes! Poor baby. He needs a vet asap, those don't look good!

Did these recently appear or have they been there for a few days/weeks?

Are there glands way down there? It almost looks like the bones of the neck itself.

I'm not sure about the glands going all the way down. But you can definitely tell that there is a lot of edema going on. Look at the shoulder and you can see the neck puffing out. Something is going on...
