    If it had some injury it could be hematoma from trauma or it could be gas from sub q bacteria. Does it feel spongey or fluid filled? If hematoma the body will reabsorb the fluid. If feels spongey may need to be on antibiotics. Good luck. [​IMG]

    That's good! If doesn't start to shrink in a couple days or gets worse it may need to see a vet. I saw this happen to a horse years ago and it stemmed from a cut on the leg.​
