This mare developed a hard mass, in one udder after her last foal (who is now 2). It is hard, irregular in shape, and has never been tender or hot. My vet looked at it/palpated it back in the fall and assured me I need not worry but was rushing to an emergency so I did not get a chance to ask questions.

At present, she is about 303 days in foal, and is starting the earliest signs of starting to develop her bag. It's still there, still not sore in the least, but I think I may detect a very slight increase in size... which could also be the normal changes associated with starting to bag up.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas of what this could be, and whether there are any potential issues? I do check it each night, both visually and with thorough palpation.

Could it be scar tissue?

You know, that's very possibly the answer. It feels like scar tissue, though I'm not sure WHY she would have any scar tissue there. (no injury as far as I know) She is definatly making a bag now, and it's still not sore at all. And, the mass is not stopping milk (we checked). The vet comes out this afternoon, I will be interested to see what she says.

The vet came.... because this mare's bag has changed quite a bit over the weekend, it was hard for her to really feel the mass. But she did say it's probably some sort of scar tissue, that at some point her last baby likely got her. She said as long as it's not tender, I do not need to be concerned or do anything. I'll be interested to see how it changes, after she weans this years (yet unborn) foal.

Beth, Glad the vet came and relieved you. Glad it's not one more thing you have to worry about:-)
