    Default UPDATED Odd Shoulder swellings

    My horse has been stiff in his neck and jaw lately, not wanting to bend or take his right lead. I have a call in to the vet but have been unable to get him out yet. Yesterday he came in with lumps and odd swellings on his shoulder: http://s660.photobucket.com/user/car...lder2.jpg.html The smaller lumps were hard and did not feel like hives. He did not seem painful and moved fine except for the stiffness. I am wondering if this is related to his stiffness or just some random allergic reaction (which he is prone to.) Any ideas?

    The link wants me to log in

    Could he have fallen on his side?

    Try this one:http://s660.photobucket.com/user/car...lder2.jpg.html I don't think so. But who knows with horses. Looks like a reaction from something but with the stiffness he has had it just makes me wonder about it.

    I see the cover picture of the 2-pic album but can't see each of the pics

    I do see the bumps. Those look like bug bites - getting pretty common here with the giant horseflies

    If you right-click on each picture, will it give you the option to "copy image url" or something like that?

    Changed it to photobucket...Yes, the smaller bumps look like bug bites, but they feel hard, like part of the bone. This horse gets hives pretty frequently but these don't feel like hives.

    Fluid has mostly settled above elbow. He also has fluid over both stifles. Only recent changes were new farrier and front shoes. He doesn't seem any more uncomfortable than before. I can't figure out what is going on.
