What the HECK could this be?? huge lump on mare

So I have been away for a few days... went out to catch my mare for a ride yesterday (River, she's 9 in August... on a separate note, WOW time flies!) and saw this.
It does not appear to be hurting her, she doesn't limp on it at a walk or a trot. I poked and prodded it a bit and she gave no indication that it hurt. It feels like fluid in there, as it is really smushy and soft.
I can't find any open hole or spot of any sort.
Could have been like this for a few days, since I've been gone I haven't looked at her for about 5 days.
I almost loaded her up and went to the vet yesterday... but decided to wait since it wasn't hurting her... I just got back from college for the summer and have literally $0.
Anyone have ANY idea? If not, I'm going to give it til tomorow morning then I guess I'm going to load her up and go to the vets, even if I have to borrow money.
Thoughts??? I hope these links work, it wont let me post them as images.

Green Broke
It's a hematoma. It can be caused by injury, a bite, or a sting. A mare I had years back got one about that size in about that same location. We never did figure out why/how either. The vet came out and lanced it and drained, then showed us how to drain it and flush it daily. We drained it daily plus gave her a round of antibiotics. After a couple of weeks, it was cleared up and she was good as new! Not even a scar remained, from the lancing & draining.

I would definitely take her to the vet tomorrow.

Thanks!
I'm going to call the vet in the morning, truck and trailer are ready to go.
It's good to know what I'm dealing with here.
