We have a horse who has one swollen gland under his throatlatch, it wasn't even noticeable but it started leaking puss yesterday, he is ridden regularly and has no temp or runny nose, in perfect health. He has had the bump for a few months.He is stalled next to my pregnant mares in the barn. I moved him to a secluded area the monute it opened up, but I am worried that with the horses touching noses?? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

I would think that if your gelding has had the bump for a few months it is likely from a foreign object, ie. wood splinter? You could have your vet do a culture on the discharge to be sure that it isn't infectious, than you'll at least have peace of mind even if it turns out to be the result of an injury. I think that isolating your gelding from your mares is a good idea until you know what you are dealing with. Good luck :-)

When I was little we bought a QH mare that had a knot on her kneck it would swell and puss up then heal up a bit to do it all over again. It turned out that she had a 2in piece of wire in her neck. It was quite a ways from the infection site tho is why no had found it sooner. We found it with an x-ray Good Luck. Foreign object would be my bet too.
