Small Lump on the Butt

This isn't my horse ... but one of the horses on pasture board at my barn.

We discovered a very very small lump on his butt. It's maybe the size of a pea or a little smaller. But when pressed, it can move around a lot under the skin. There is no disruption to the fur, so I don't think there's a wound that needs to be opened and trained.

Any idea what this might be? Am hoping it's just something from a bite; it's a little too high (and very small) for a kick. It's pretty well up on his rump.

Is it hard, or "squishy"? It may be a small fat deposit, nothing to worry about. In general, (although not always!) a lump that can be moved around is more likely to be nothing major, where a lump that is attached is more concerning.

It's kind of hard. I have to admit, I was almost having fun by pressing on it and having it "pop" out from under my finger to somewhere else.

I'll see him again tonight and look to see if it's changed any.
