Welts on my horse

I was wondering if anybody know what has caused a large amount of small welts all over my horse's body mainly on the sides not any on the top or neck. He is eating and drinking regularly and has no fever. And also what would yall suggest I do to him

Bug bites?

Your horse may very well be allergic to some type of biting insect that is around your barn.

Thats what I thought also he didn't have them this morning at feeding time but this afternoon he did

Is it possible that he's gotten into a wasp nest or bees?

Well my husband thought that bees did it because in the past we have had bee hives but they are not swarming right now

Any blooming clover in your pasture?

Could be hives. Just for yuks, "whelps" are puppies. You mean "welts".

Does he have swollen glands under his jaw (between the two sides of the lower jaw)?
