Get a second opinion!
Ditto that it looks more than just a cresty neck with abnormal fat deposit

What does this lump look to be?

This draft cross rescue mare has a big neck lump. What does it look like to you? Cyst, tumor, fat deposit? Any input would be appreciated.

It's hard to tell from that angle. It doesn't really look like a crested neck. Time to play 20 questions :)

How old is she? Does it bother her to the touch? Is there any discharge coming from it? Is it mushy or firm?

Ok...5 questions isn't bad. For now :)

Looks like a vaccine reaction.

That was my first thought. Has she had any recent shots? Banamine injections can cause swelling and abscesses in the neck. If you're not sure it really should be seen by a Vet.

If someone vaccinated her out of the safe zone, that could be it.

That's EXACTLY what my original thought was. I live on a cattle ranch and we get calves that have reactions like that. She will most definitely be getting seen by a vet. I had one come out to look at her and he said it was due to being a cross breed(cresty neck) Unfortunately, she's a rescue and I don't know much background history. By the way her hooves look I don't think she was very well taken care of and highly doubt she has had a shot recently. If she had one a long time ago could it still be there? I was told she's between 7 and 12. The lump is kind of firm. And another question. She's only around 14 hands. Wouldn't a draft cross be taller?

I think everyone is right about a vaccine reaction. Did the last vet specialize in equines? Let us know what this new vet says!

She could be a draft pony cross. She's a cutie!

I looked up some pictures of vaccine reactions in horses and it looks like that's what the lump is... I'm no vet but sure looks similar! Does anybody know if those can stick around for an extended amount of time?
