  1. Horse Health
    Hello all! I woke up this morning to find a big lump on my gelding’s chest, see photos below. He does not act like it is sore to the touch, and is eating and drinking just fine. The lump is warmer than the rest of him, but the difference is hardly noticeable. I was away for the weekend, so the...

    This is Thunder, our little 3 year old Dun Paint colt. Just the other day, while I was grooming him, I noticed a lump on his upper cheek. When I push on it, he pulls away from the pain, but doesn't mind if I just place my hand on it. At first, my fiance said that he might've just bumped his head...

    For about two months now, my gelding Zeus has had a strange lump next to his spine. I noticed it one day after jumping him on a lunge line (teeny jumps-- maybe 6" at most). He didn't give me any signs that he was hurt, but I quit him and let him rest until I could get a chiropractor out. The...

    My 8 year old half Draft gelding has a small lump on the side of his stomach. We have had him for 2 years and he has never had anything like this before. We think it might be a bug bite, but are not sure. Should we have the vet out to check, even if it is a bug bite?

    I went out to ride this morning and found that my horse has a lump over the fetlock of his right leg. He just got his shots three days ago and got his feet clipped (he isn't shod) a few days before that. He has crap feet and a bit of thrush I've been fighting for a while so the farrier ended...

    I went out to the barn a few weeks ago and my gelding had a lump a little above were his neck meets his chest. I poked and prodded it for a while and didn't seem to cause him any pain. It's about half the size of a potato and you can sort of pick it up under the skin and its more hard than...

    My paint filly Classy is turning two this coming June, and a couple weeks ago, I noticed she had a bit of a lump under her jaw mid-way. Thought "hmm, she must be getting a wolf tooth", and left it at that. Yesterday I felt under there again, and it's turned into a bigger crusty kind of ugly...

    Hi guys, I was wondering if someone can help me figure out what's going on with my horse. He's a 14 year old paint horse gelding, named Johnny. About a month ago i noticed a small lump on his neck where the neck and jaw meet up. It was pretty small so i didn't think anything of it. But now...

    My gelding developed an odd swollen large lump right at the top of his scapula. This happened overnight after a non-riding day. This is not a bug bite and is not a saddle issue. The swelling is not showing signs of heat and is not changing in size. It is very firm... seems more like a deep...
