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

Thanks
Samantha

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

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

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)?
