My 3yo has several clusters of little teeny weeny pink bumps in his mouth-not on his tongue but on the inside of the cheek and by the bars. Is this normal and I have simply never noticed before?

I did check my other horse's mouth and he does not have them....

Could this be a reaction to something he is eating or his bit-it is a copper bit...

Or just normal?

Difficult for us to say Leah. Horses do normally have little bumps on the inside of their lips, but whether yours are normal I can't tell from here. If they look red and inflammed, call the vet, if they don't ask next time he is out.

Thanks-I know it can be hard to try to answer so many questions about things you can't see...I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking some recently discovered Pinkus Bumpus disease, characterized by several 1-2 inch size clusters of pink bumps, if left untreated, known to cause a gender change of the animal within 48 hours.


I will keep an eye out and if they get worse I will call my handy dandy local vet.

One late breaking thought-this is the same horse that I have been fighting scratches for over 4 months....could this be a related to photosensitivity and I am misssing it?

I have read your article and articles elsewhere and it seems symptoms of photosensitivity can appear in the mouth or tongue?

Reaching here but thought that may be some important imformation...thanks again

Huh? No I don't think this is likely to be photsensitivitybut I would watch for that gender change thing.
