    Default picture - what is this?

    story - horse developed temp of 103.2 - yikes! vet came out, did blood work, we treated with banamine first and then bute. fever went away after 3 days. blood work results came back fine - a bit low on iron but nothing else. vet did exam of horse but I don't recall looking in mouth as we were suspecting lyme.

    2 days later I notice hives on horse and that he is rubbing his mouth - which I hadn't noticed before. so I start treating hives and do close look at mouth looking for ticks as anytime I see horses rubbing I immediately suspect ticks. when I touch mouth he is very sensitive and I pry it open and find this:

    You have to be a premium member. If you are, there's a series of little icons just above the box where you type your posts. One of them (3rd from the end in my case) is a little cartoon of a tree. Click on that and it will let you link a photo.

    Otherwise copy and paste a link to the photo's URL if you have it on line somewher.

    Thorn? Stinger (from wasp or bee)?

    This is suspenseful. I do hope the horse is OK now.

    guess I am techno challenged.........

    anyhoo - it is a big oval shaped thing -raised cheek tissue right inside the upper lip - I can roll the lip over and see it. the tissue is very thick and granular. horse is eating, drinking, grazing, etc just fine. I clean it out 2x a day with warm salt water, the mouthwash/water mixture, and then i have been putting on oral gel/ambesol . it seems to be shrinking.

    I know I have one of those photbucket accounts and I thought I hd Picasso. can I upload from FB?

    You can post the link from Facebook. Just make sure the privacy is set to "public" then click on the right side where it says "get link" and post the link here.

    I know we have not seen the photos but could be an infection in the tooth. My younger guy had that last summer vet removed the tooth since the infection was at the root. Hope all is OK when the vet comes out.

    OK, maybe OP can email it to me and I'll post it? trottrotcanter @ gmail dot com

    Or if posting from FB, just right click on the photo and go to "properties" (for IE) and highlight the URL for the imagine and paste it here. For Firefox, right click and click "copy image location" and paste it here.

    Ahhhh suspense! I cant say I have ever seen anything like that, though. I hope the pictures can clear it up.

    Wow the suspense is killing me! How about that picture? Any updates?

    I vote for a wasp, or bee. They do effect everybody differently.

    Maybe grazing along, or eating hay, one was in there and stung your horse. Red wasps are pretty active right now.

    Hope your horse gets better.

    I give up! tried my photobucket and it did not add synced photos from FB. sent pic to my email and photobuckete still would not add it!!

    tried directions about FB as listed above and too paranoid to change my privacy settings!

    so if you don't mind trottrotcanter I will send you some pics!

    thanks all!

    Have you been icing the area on your horse?

    Sometimes it is the sw, our server, stoopid internet. Not that we are techno challenged.

    OK, here are the yucky pics. No idea OP

    Pic one

    Pic two

    The third one was too blurry to be of any use.

    Those look exactly like the sores my horse developed in his mouth after eating hay with pigeon grass in it. Kind of a long shot, given your other issues, but double check that your hay doesn't have any pigeon grass or foxtail seedheads in it.

    It looks like a ruptured abscess to me.... dogs used to get them if a foxtail got under their skin -- maybe horse ate a foxtail, as another poster suggested?
