Mmm to me it looks more like her lower jaw thats swollen in that picture. You would know her better then me
Her bottom jaw got a little bump since her goatee started coming in about 2 months ago if I remember correctly. I’ve been always checking if swollen and all I feel is her hair. And I’m doing routine fecals too, because I had my suspicions. But thankfully they’ve been coming back clean.

Thanks. I’m really not sure. I will check the gum on her sister today and see how different they are.
Depending on what they forage/Graze on a thistle prickle or something stuck in the gum can definitely cause iratation or abscess. My friend had a foal and raw fence rails. It got an abscess from chewing the fence. Antibiotics were given and abscess cleaned out.

Thanks a lot. I will look into all possibilities.

You're right. And yes, a lot of things are new to me, i've only been doing for just over a year now. Still have a long road ahead.
