Chrome's Injury Update
I think I found out what is causing the mysterious swelling. I was checking his throat without a halter on and there is a three inch cut right across his throat exactly where the throat piece of the halter sits. I bet he had his head through the barbed wire fence (one of the drawbacks of the lease land) and spooked which sliced his throat. It's not life threatening, but it is pretty deep so I'm going to call the vet on Monday for antibiotics. Sheesh this horse has taken more antibiotics in his two years than I have in my whole life lol. Anyway at least that explains the lump on his throat. Thanks guys.
