    True, actually when I first looked up some possible causes for a lump on a young horse's face, a bunch of teeth related articles came up... My little guy is shy when it comes to showing me his teeth, so when our vet stops by I'm going to have to ask him what to do about that.

    Before you panic, try to see if there is grass stuck between the gums and teeth. I know this sounds crazy, but I had a paint mare that got a very similar lump, and I immediately had the vet out. I felt like a fool when he reached in and pulled out a massive clump of grass and immediately got rid of the lump. I never would have guessed that to be the cause of such a serious looking lump.

    Huh, you know I never thought about that! Our vet, unfortunately, couldn't make it out today (boo). Thunder is still acting like his usual self, and thankfully, the lump hasn't gotten bigger! I'm definitely going to try peeking into his mouth... if he'll let me... haha. Thank you for the idea, Kaitlynbowles!

    You're welcome! I just know it helps to think it may be something small and not so serious.
