Hi Melanie,

I really appreciate how much you care about your horses. I am not a vet but it looks like a hematoma to me. Like a bruise. Perhaps he got kicked and there is some swelling on the area. You could halter him and run some cold water on his leg today while you wait for your vet to call.
Cold will help the swelling to go down. Hang in there

well he has been out in the pasture with this 3 year old mare and they dont get along at all. when he trys to come up to me she runs him off by kicking him or charging at him. the mare used to not be in the same field as ares but some how she jumped the fence and got in with our horses. i think when we go put them back in the field my dad is going to put the other mare back in her own field. yeah i will go do that right now..i really hope it goes back down. could that cause any lameness for him with that and would that affect his riding?

Well...if it is a "bruise" it won't be a permanet thing. Just like when we get a bruise. It might be painful at first and he might favor it but as it heals he will get better. It sounds like that might be what happened. Be careful and don't get hurt with the other mare in the field.

Hi
We just got a mare and she has one of those on her chest just below half way, well she had it when she came and it hasnt gone away. Its much smaller, like a bee sting. Thats what we thought it was when she came but it just hasnt left....she doesnt act like it hurts or anything like that so could it be like a cyst or something like that? ~Thanks~

Could very well be but I think Melanie said that it just appeared, was not there and then it was so that is why I thought perhaps an injury. My horse has a little benign tumor on his chest which is like the size of a ping pong ball been there for 10+ years but this appearing all of the sudden makes me think of a kick???
