Swollen Lymph Nodes

One of my horses has swollen lymph glands, I didn't notice it until I gave him a body clip the other day. It's bilateral swelling about the size of a golf ball on either side. He is eating, drinking, defecating, etc. all normally. This is a new horse, he just arrived a week or so ago. He has had more fresh grass than he is used to, he started to get watery stool and I have kept him stalled with only 15 minutes of grazing at a time since then. He was vaccinated with a 5 way, WN and strangles last year, and he's coming up on being due again next month. Any advice/thoughts?

The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.
- William Shakespeare

Incubation for strep is 7-30 days. I doubt it's strep.

It is spring though. As in humans, equines filter through the lymph nodes. Allergens, pollen, etc can trigger the slight swelling.

Keep an eye on his temp, feed him low to allow the sinus to drain and get your spring stuff scheduled!
