Bump on vulva?
I mentioned this awhile ago and finally got pics of it. Not very good pic at that, but it gives you a generally idea what I'm talking about.

At the bottom of her vulva( I think thats what you call it) you see the pinkish part. Theres also a black bump. Like her winker it stopped in that position.

Can any one tell me why?

it's hard to tell from the pic (blurry). Is a actual bump or just a black spot? If you give i a little better description i may know what it is, i also have a vet manual so i will try to find out what it is for you and let you know.

its a bump at the bottom of the flaps. it looks like her clitoris, but its to low. And it pretrudes out , its not closed, its open

i'm not really sure what it is i cant find anything about that in my vet book. I'm gonna say possible infection? I would have the vet out to find out what it is. Sorry i couldn't help :(

Just guessing here but maybe a melanoma? They are more commom in grey/white horses. I have seen a few in darker colored horses though. I used to have a mare that her "stuff" was kinda open like that too. I'm guessing either from poor conformation or lots of foals.
