Assertion by some male horses can cause damage to the shoulder areas of the less dominant horse as seen in these photos. This horse has non-painful masses in front of the shoulder blade associated with the horses biting and holding onto the flesh of this horse. In more aggressive horses, this damage can be more severe leading to a hole from one side of the neck to the other.
