Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
In most cases in older horses, they can develop edema which is a fluid filled space due to gravity placing this fold of skin and lump in this area that you describe. This is not unusual and is not harmful to Little Miss Country. It is not a lipoma but a bag of fluid from gravity secondary to something going on in her system. I would certainly keep an eye on this mass if it returns and it may help to run blood work to be sure that her metabolic issues are normal. This fluid is coming form somewhere but is most likely not anything serious.Does that make sense to you?
