    Question What could this be ????? Pocket of fluid! ???

    Well I went out to feed tonight and my yearling has a weird large pocket of fluid just below is stifle on the inside of his leg. There is no injury that I can see, no scratches, nothing, just this pocket. Its very squishy and soft, not hot, it jiggles when he walks, and he is not lame. It has a lot of fluid in it and is making his skin sag and strech. Its SOO WEIRD! What can it be!! ????

    I can post a picture if someone will tell me how

    sounds like some localized edema. will he let you put a warm compress on it? try that to help his body absorb the fluid but if that doesn't work, the your can poke a hole in it to drain it (that's the fun part)
