Horses can get all kinds of skin conditions (warts/tumors/etc) just like people, and a lot of them look very similar. What we do is just leave them alone (don't try to pick/remove them), keep an eye out for any major changes (size/color/bleeding/etc), and have the vet look at them next time he's out. If there is a big change, we'll have the vet out before (usually to remove it) and send to the lab for pathology to identify it. Of course, if you're worried, talk to your vet.
