It could be anything. I would go ahead and monitor his temperature daily and watch for further changes in the area. If he spikes a fever or the area swells, call your vet.

ya i think he was kicked his in an open pasture with like 20 other horses and lots that think there all alpha, i have been monitoring his temp and other vitals for a lil over a week and its all in normal range and theres still no swelling or heat and he isnt walking stiff or sore , he running around like usual i do however have a muscle rub for sore joints and sprains for horses that is pure natural ingredients so not sure if thats why he hasnt been stiff or sore. anyways i went out today and its seems to have gone down a bit, but compared to his other chest muscle its still protruding a lil.but temp,vitals and thers still no swelling or heat and he seems more tolerable when i feel the muscle(for swelling).
