their glands puff up a bit when the temp and weather changes affect the grass chemistry - it can look quite bad on some so I bet you're not the first person to panic!!

Kharidian had huge, hard glands (?parotid?) the size of my fist yesterday; he's never had them in previous years but other horses he grazes with have had them, so I didn't worry and he was not "unwell" so we hacked out as usual.

I was not aware that they were due to changes in the grass chemistry; I'd assumed he'd been grazing on something different.

My philosophy with lumps & bumps is that if there's a matching pair it's probably nothing to worry about!

Both of mine get them, but they soon go down when they have been kept in
